O.C. Guitarist to Join Rock's Black Crowes


FULLERTON — Marc Ford, one of the most exciting young guitarists on the Orange County rock scene, is leaving his own struggling band, Burning Tree, to join the Black Crowes, a group from Georgia whose debut album sold more than 4 million copies worldwide.

Ford, who lives in Fullerton, said Friday that he also received an offer this week to join Guns N' Roses as an on-stage substitute for Izzy Stradlin, a guitarist who is reportedly reluctant to continue touring.

Ford said he refused that offer because playing with the Black Crowes will be "a lot more fun--it's more my kind of music. I didn't think twice. I'm far more into the Black Crowes' music than the Guns N' Roses thing."

Ford said that Slash, a member of Guns N' Roses, called "out of the blue" on Monday and Tuesday offered him a spot in the band's touring lineup. By then, Ford had already agreed to join the Black Crowes. A spokesman for Guns N' Roses' management declined to comment when contacted Friday.
