Excerpt from blabbermouth:

GUNS N' ROSES keyboardist Dizzy Reed was recently interviewed by Germany's Metal-Heads.de. You can now watch the chat below.
Asked about the inspiration for the title track of his debut solo album, "Rock 'N Roll Ain't Easy", Dizzy said: "I spend a lot of time reminding myself that life could be a lot harder. I could be doing something I don't wanna do at all. I'm really lucky to be able to play rock music for a living.
"It's not as easy as it looks. It's not all glitz and glam," he continued.
"I started playing rock and roll because I didn't wanna work; I didn't wanna have a 9-to-5 [job]. And I realized at some point… Now all I do is work. If you wanna stay busy out there and [remain] relevant, you have to work harder.

"There's a lot of times when, especially at that point in my life, where I was wondering why I was doing it still, and there was nothing coming in, and you don't have anything to fall back on. If I went to a McDonald's right now to apply for a job, they wouldn't take me. What am I gonna do?
"It's a story about how difficult things were and how much time I had to spend sticking it out, wondering where I was gonna go to sleep that night, wondering where I was gonna get a shower and get something to eat," he added. "I mean, that went on for years. And I think when I did write that song, I thought I had kind of come full circle. My first marriage had split up and my stuff was literally in my truck. I was staying in an apartment with the girl who had become my wife now. And I was sitting out on a balcony playing guitar, and that song just started coming [to me]. It was raining and I didn't know what I was gonna do. But a lot of it is kind of tongue-in-cheek too. If you know me, I'm not that serious. But I think people will get the point. People can make of it what they would like, basically."
