Gilby Clarke: Guns N’ Roses Don’t Have a ‘Rebellious Spirit’ Anymore


He revealed that in aside from the band's aggressive and bluesy sound, what he initially liked about them the most was their attitude.

"I also loved the rebellious spirit of the band, and we really needed that punk rock-esque rebellious spirit at that time when there were a lot of MTV bands that weren't living that rebellious spirit," he explained. "I don't think the band is very rebellious right now. But that's what attracted me to it in the very beginning."

Clarke played in Guns N' Roses following the departure of Izzy Stradlinin 1991 until 1994. His new solo album The Gospel Truth is underway, and he just released a song called "Tightwad" withNikki Sixx and Stephen Perkins last month. Check it out below.
