Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Tracii Guns revealed that he was not pulling a Jimi Hendrix on one of his song in a new interview. Guns formed Guns N’ Roses with Axl Rose. A Van Halen member recently made a heartbreaking Jimi Hendrix remark.
Guns made the remark during an AL interview.
What’s giving the guitar its icy tone on the “Ballad of Jayne” solo? Is that a Uni-Vibe (an effects pedal guitarists like Jimi Hendrix and Robin Trower popularized) on there?
“Oh, on that song? On the solo? That’s just my fingers wobbling, man.”
“I literally played a Strat through a Fender Bassman and that’s it. Some reverb. Maybe the spring reverb’s a little washy on it but yeah there’s nothing fun on it.”
If you could have any well-known artist cover “Ballad of Jayne” who would you like to hear cover that?
“Wow. Who’s that fellow with the hat? (Country star) Brad Paisley. That would be awesome. I can see him doing that.”
Izzy Stradlin brutally slapping a Guns N’ Roses member was recently revealed by an ex-bandmate.
