Time with Guns N' Roses:

Shows with the band:
{CHRISSHOWS}.
Biography:
Chris Pitman (born February 25, 1961) is an American musician best known for his involvement with the hard rock band Guns N' Roses. A multi-instrumentalist, Pitman is known to play keyboards, guitar and drums, in addition to his role as a lead or backing vocalist. Pitman currently fronts alternative rock band SexTapes and previously worked with such bands as Guns N' Roses, Lusk, Replicants and Tool. [From Wikipedia, August 2016].

Quotes:
He adds so much to the band. He's a good guy to get along with. I've never had a problem with him of any kind. I'm a team player man... I'm always up for what's best for the whole raw picture. on tour.. you know... he just accents what we do so... I'm all for it [Madagascar88, September 2005]

On the keyboards to my left, I gotta make sure he's there. Sometimes the tequila starts early, Chris Pitman! [Axl introduces Pitman in Zürich, Switzerland, September 2010]

Chris has been in the band for a long time now. I have a lot of respect for what he does and vice versa. We figure out who's going to do what, you know? I think it's important for people to look at the big picture, to put your ego aside at the door and do what's best for the band. Chris and I both have that capability [twincities.com, November 2011]

I think if you go through the songs we've done over the years, especially the newer songs but also the Use Your Illusion material, then you would realize that I only have two hands. Chris brings an incredible amount of himself and creativity to the songs. It's a good thing to look over and see him doing his thing on stage [Metal Express Radio, May 2012]

Pitman is a great singer and songwriter [Boomerocity, January 2013]

Chris was my very first friend in the band - from before I was even in the band. From 2004. We were talking back then, and he was the first hug I ever got in Guns N' Roses! He's my bro. He is a very artistic guy, a great painter, great artist. Very interesting with electronic music. Great singer, too, and songwriter. His band, SexTapes - I don't know if you've heard that album, but it's fucking fantastic. The only way I can describe it is Tool meets David Bowie. That's what I get out of it when I hear it. It's really cool. So, I have something with Frank and Chris. It's Chris' brainchild - his baby. It's this electronic music where he brings in all these rock elements. I play live guitar, Frank plays live drums, and Chris is making all the crazy sounds and he's like the dj. We throw in some vocals, and it's called Blowout. We did a show down in Brazil, and it was fun as hell. I'm hoping we can get to do more of that. That was a great time, just the three of us having fun.[October 10, 2013]

About joining the band: Chris sent me a funny email, like, "80's hairband looking for guitar player." He'd definitely my best friend in the band. He is a wonderful guy. [November 26, 2013, Vorterix.com]

Pitman is very artistic and has a lot to offer Smile
[REDDIT AMA, December 2013]

I never really felt anything for Chris, but after tonight's show I have to say I love the guy! Totally bonkers on maracas and then, out of nowhere, he came up and sang with Neil Young during the ending of the last song when all the other guys stood behind too scared to come up. He's completely loco and seems to be having the time of his life all the time.

Why does Chris make me think of Abraham Van Helsing in this picture?

Probably because of the pale, scantily clad woman in the background and because of what looks like eye shadow on Chris. It basically looks like a drawing to accompany a Vampire novel.

I think it may be the cross and his admonishing finger. Could be the harpy about to attack... and in the end, he'll save us all.

Ah, I never saw the cross. Wow. The synth sort of breaks the illusion, though.

Seems like Chris is having an outburst on Facebook:

Chris Pitman its not my birthday, its his! those dumbasses, wikipedia always go there, fuk them! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhgKMCizeYc

Chris Pitman but Happy Birthday Chris Pittman!

Chris Pitman I forgot to add, those dildoes at mygnr. com, or whatever the fuk theyre called, they post this as well as my birthday, you would think after 18 fuking years ...what misinformed dumbfuks they are!

Chris Pitman not LOL, those cuntz misinformed the public because they have no idea of any truth....complete bullshitters

Chris Pitman good luck brother, but dealing with a slew of anonymous assholes with nostalgia on their agenda, is like reading Yahoo comments......worthless [THIS WAS A COMMENT TO A GUY WHO HAS STARTED A NEW GN'R SITE AND WANTS CHRIS' HELP TO GET IT OFF THE GROUND]

Ignazio Sixx Comito I Hope you are in the band!

Chris Pitman this is a nostalgia tour, please dont mention those who are there the last 20 fkg years.,,, oh god no! ....(a money grab) FU

Seems like he is pissed about people mistaking his for Chris Pittmann, and maybe more. And he refers to the upcoming tour as nostalgia.

And he's probably right... but that's what many "fans" have wanted for years.

What bugs me more: he seemed to think he was gonna play Coachella, then management (or whoever) advised him to delete his post about that. So far so good. But it seems to me Axl doesn't even talk to his "friends" (it was mentioned that he wrote songs with Pitman etc)! Tommy knew nothing at all after Vegas 2014, it all sounds like the band members don't even have Axl's phone number to ask him what's going on... Doh!

Guns N’ Roses member Chris Pitman is working with Tool on their highly anticipated new album. Pitman tweeted a photo over the weekend with the caption, “Studio nite, tracking, #dannycarey #beatrazr #kentbrisley #toolband.”

So he is not rehearsing with the band, if the band is still rehearsing. Could mean he is out of the touring lineup, like his outburst also could have implied. We will find out soon.

Btw: I am in München today, was in Wien yesterday. Heidelberg last week. Zurich and Copenhagen next week. I am everywhere!
