On Tuesday night, former Guns N’ Roses guitarist DJ Ashba tweeted, “Completely gutted n shocked. #peaceoutworld.”
The message frightened fans, who tweeted him concerned messages.
If anybody reading this who knows Ashba can reach out to him, please do so. Everybody should send him their love.
Ashba discussed leaving Guns N’ Roses in a 2016 interview, “”I had a blast, man. I think over six years — I don’t know; around six years — [I played] well over three hundred shows with them, and we had a lot of fun; there were a lot of laughs a lot of good times. It gets to a point where you kind of start losing yourself, or at least I do. I never got into the music business or started playing music for money, so at some point you kind of start going, ‘Wait a second.’ Playing other people’s songs is really cool and it’s fun, especially since you were very inspired growing up as a kid to these songs, but after a while you…
I remember [Sixx A.M.] did the ‘Modern Vintage’ tour — it was like nineteen shows — the difference between playing stuff that you write and the notes you hit that come from your heart, when you see them connect with the crowd, I can’t tell you… No amount of money can buy that feeling. You know what I mean? So it just came down to following my heart and kind of just refocusing and getting myself back on track to where I knew I was supposed to be.””
