Guns N’ Roses is proud to announce that guitarist  n’ songwriter Dj Ashba has joined the band for an upcoming tour.

Ashba, who officially replaces current NIN guitarist Robin Finck, is best known as co-founder of hard rock bands Sixx AM and Beautiful Creatures. "Dj’s a gifted, energetic guitarist that Guns N’ Roses is proud to have on board!!" exclaims Axl Rose.  "We’re very excited to have the opportunity to work together. Guns’ radar has silently been aware of Dj’s presence for quite some time! He brings a fresh approach to our particular brand of mayhem expanding the tapestry of Guns N’ Roses live.  Once Dj’s name was in the hat, the hat disappeared!!"

"It’s an honor to have the opportunity to be a part of a band that I  have always loved and respected," said Dj Ashba. "I’m looking forward to working with Axl, who is not only one of the few great front men of our generation, but a true artist."

Dj Ashba co-wrote and co-produced Motley Crue’s latest album "Saints of Los Angeles," which garnered a 2008 GRAMMY nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance, as well as co-wrote and co-produced the Sixx AM album "Heroin Diaries."

Robin continues to be part of GN’R, by virtue of Guns’ history and his involvement in Chinese Democracy.

Now, one step closer to the abyss, Ashba joins a band who’s all time roster is nearly as long as it’s founder Axl Rose’s rap sheet!

We send out a HUGE congrats to a long time old skool friend in DJ Ashba and a big Fuck You to the cock suckers. Including Blabbermouth. You pricks could give some credit when credit is due. We always plug your shitty site when we steal your news, so next time we break some news plug us too you fucking jagoffs.
