Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash has reacted to the death of Lizzy Grey, an early bandmate of Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx, who was devastated by the news.
He wrote, “Sad news. RIP #LizzyGrey.” After posting his tribute, he later posted a bizarre wheelchair photo.
Slash’s Conspirators bandmate Brent Fritz recently made the stunning announcement that he was leaving the band’s tour early for an emergency surgery. Slash has now stated that Fritz had the surgery, and it went very well.
“#BrentFitz had a successful eye surgery last night. & he is well on his way to a speedy recovery. Canadians rock so hard their eyeballs literally jump out of their skulls! iiii]; )'”
Slash’s girlfriend Meegan Hodges commented, “That’s a fact! Brent’s 2nd time having an eyeball pop out and Todd 2 or 3 times? @toddkerns @brentfitz 👀👁️😜😎 I’ll duct tape them in for you any time.
Duff McKagan recently discussed Guns N’ Roses as a touring act today in a new Rolling Stone Music Now podcast interview, as transcribed by Alternative Nation.
“The thing about Guns [N’ Roses] and always from the inception to now, is it’s not a bullshit band. We take everything, rehearsals, we’ve always been the hardest rehearsing band. When we go out on stage and play, it’s real. Like, the daggers come out and it’s like a bar fight. It’s still that way and it’s never been phoning something in.
Somebody came to one of our shows and said: “I thought you guys were gonna just phone it in but you played three and a half hours.” and I said: “We wouldn’t know how to phone it in.” If that’s a result of growing up to the Stones or whatever, I don’t know, but that’s just the way our band is and I’m honored that you said we are taking up some mantle of some greatness but we’re just doing what we do.”
