GILBY CLARKE EMBARKS ON A STRING OF HEADLINE DATES
Starting October 26th at the Canyon Club – Santa Clarita, CA
HOLLYWOOD, CA (October 2, 2018) – Gilby Clarke embarks on a micro tour after several months in the studio recording new materiel for his next, very much anticipated album. The Gilby Clarke band is a well-oiled three-piece that comprises of Gilby Clarke (vocals/guitar), EJ Curse (bass) and Jimmy D’Anda (drums).
Best known for his tour of duty with Guns n’ Roses, Gilby Clarke was 17 when he traded Cleveland for Hollywood. A troubadour in the Ronnie Wood tradition: a bar-room brawler with a Stones-y swagger, plus a catalog of well-written songs. Clarke joined Guns in the early 90’s as the Use Your Illusion tour kicked off. He appeared on the bands Spaghetti Incident, Live Era ’88-’91 & Greatest Hits albums. Surviving the longest tour in history – Clarke went solo & came out swinging with PawnShop Guitars. A catalog of rock n roll purity: Tijuana Jail, Cure Me… Or Kill Me… & The Stone’s Dead Flowers put this record on many year-end top 10 lists.
After Guns imploded, armed only with his Les Paul, Clarke went back to Virgin and launched his solo career. Receiving critical winks for his albums Pawnshop Guitars, The Hangover, Rubber, 99 Live and Swag. Recording and/or touring over the next several years with Nancy Sinatra, Heart, The MC5 & his old bandmate Slash’s Snakepit.
Now coming full circle, Clarke is back to give his fans a taste before he unleashes in 2019 a new album and tour dates~
