Guns N’ Roses is proud to announce that guitarist n’ songwriter Dj Ashba has joined the band for an upcoming tour.
Ashba, who officially replaces current NIN guitarist Robin Finck, is best
known as co-founder of hard rock bands Sixx AM and Beautiful Creatures.
“Dj’s a gifted, energetic guitarist that Guns N’ Roses is proud to have on
board!!” exclaims Axl Rose. “We’re very excited to have the
opportunity to work together. Guns’ radar has silently been aware of
Dj’s presence for quite some time! He brings a fresh approach to our
particular brand of mayhem expanding the tapestry of Guns N’ Roses
live. Once Dj’s name was in the hat, the hat disappeared!!”
“It’s an honor to have the opportunity to be a part of a band that I have always loved and respected,” said Dj Ashba.
“I’m looking forward to working with Axl, who is not only one of the few great front men of our generation, but a true artist.”
Dj Ashba co-wrote and co-produced Motley Crue’s latest album “Saints of
Los Angeles,” which garnered a 2008 GRAMMY nomination for Best Hard
Rock Performance, as well as co-wrote and co-produced the Sixx AM album
“Heroin Diaries.”

Robin continues to be part of GN’R, by virtue of Guns’ history and his involvement in Chinese Democracy.
Now, one step closer to the abyss, Ashba joins a band who’s all time roster is nearly as long as it’s founder Axl
Rose’s rap sheet!”
