Ex-Guns N' Roses Guitarist Gilby Clarke On His Upcoming Solo Album 'The Gospel Truth': 'I'm Not Trying To Reinvent The Wheel'

Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke recently released a single, "Rock N Roll Is Getting Louder", via Golden Robot Records. A true stormer of a track in pure Gilby fashion, it is rock and roll doused in the influences that run through Gilby's veins.

Gilby stated about the track: "The song is about having a rebellious spirit. Rock and roll means many things: rebelling, freedom and being who you are on your own terms — not following whatever's now in vogue. Therefore, 'Rock N Roll Is Getting Louder' means 'I am what I am, I won't change that, and I stand up for things that are important to me, even if it's not popular.'"

"Rock N Roll Is Getting Louder" is taken from Clarke's first solo album in 15 years, "The Gospel Truth", which will be released later this year via Golden Robot Records. The disc was produced and written by Gilby at his Los Angeles recording studio, Redrum Recording, where he's also helmed records for such artists as L.A. Guns, The Bronx, Beat Angels, Bullets And Octane and many more. The album was mixed by Grammy Award winner Chris Lord-Alge and mastered by Maor Appelbaum. Joining Gilby on the LP are Muddy Stardust on bass, Kenny Aronoff (John Mellencamp, John Fogerty, Chickenfoot) on drums, along with Matt Starr (Ace Frehley, Mr. Big) and Chad Stewart (Fastar Pussycat, L.A. Guns) on backing vocals.

When asked how his new music may be different to his previous material, Gilby said: "I don't think it's very different at all. I'm not trying to reinvent the wheel. I have found the music that I like as an artist and a musician. It's important that I get better at it and try new things, but I like rock and roll, and loud guitars are good for the soul."

Clarke also discussed his songwriting process, saying: "I always start with a good guitar riff, then add the devil's drumbeat. It's good when you can put some interesting lyrics to it, too. I always try to find a new way of saying something simple. I don't like to complicate my lyrics, but I never duplicate them either."

In April 2020, Gilby released a music video for the single. And in June, he released a second single from the then upcoming album. Blabbermouth, June 29, 2020:

Ex-Guns N' Roses Guitarist Gilby Clarke Releases 'The Gospel Truth' Single

Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke has released "The Gospel Truth", the second single from his forthcoming album of the same name.

The truth is whatever someone says out loud, no one is accountable and it’s puzzling. Reflecting on an upbringing within the Catholic church, Clarke touches upon the idea that honesty shouldn't come from fear, and encourages the listener to be brave, say what you mean, and mean what you say.

This past April, Clarke released the official music video for his previous single, "Rock N Roll Is Getting Louder". The Christopher C. Pearson-directed clip was shot in Palmdale, California and downtown Los Angeles, while the band performance footage was filmed in Hollywood club Oh My Ribs!

Gilby's live band members bass player EJ Curse (Silent Rage, White Lion) and drummer Jimmy D'Anda (Bulletboys, George Lynch) both appear in the video, along with some great cameos by Slim Jim Phantom (Stray Cats), Taime Downe (Faster Pussycat), Jimmy Herald (Hillbilly Herald) and Teddy "Zig Zag" Andreadis (Guns N' Roses, Carole King, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Alice Cooper).

Speakers include Ari Herstand from Independent Music Professionals United, and others impacted by the current law.

The Assembly bill went into effect January 1, making it harder to label workers as independent contractors. The goal of the bill is to make sure companies aren't using freelancers to save money by skirting labor laws that guarantee protections such as paid sick days, health care benefits, overtime pay and the ability to unionize.

Although it was initially targeted at companies like Uber and Lyft, AB5 has cost freelance writers, musicians and others jobs, cost them needed income, made it harder for them to find work and, in many cases, jeopardized their livelihood.
