Axl Rose ‘look alike/sound alike’ up for LA Guns spot?


Colby Veil with Steven Adler.


It’s been a little over a week since Jizzy Pearl up and left Tracii Guns version of LA GUNS. This all on the eve of their releasing a brand new CD. "Acoustic Gypsy Live" hit stores yesterday via Steve Vai’s label Favored Nations.

In the last week rumors are rampant about Rock Star Supernova runner-up Dilana getting the job. Now the latest scoop is that Colby Veil is also in the running. Veil is a Axl Rose impersonator who has made quite an impression on Guns N’ Roses fans. This includes original members themselves.

Colby has fronted Adler’s Appetite, and also jammed with Izzy, Duff & Gilby Clarke over time. Check out some testimonials below:

“It was hard to believe that the voice this kid (of Hollywood Roses Frontman, Colby Veil) has. It was a nice trip back before I left Gn’R. “The 20th Anniversary Show” was GREAT and he’s a nice guy”

-Izzy Stradlin – Guns n’ Roses

“If you love Old School Guns and Roses, the Hollywood Roses are your ticket for a journey back in time.  I think Colby might be Axl’s twin brother from the 80’s.”

-Michael Starr – Steel Panther

“Hollywood Roses lead singer Colby Veil could be the future of bluesy rock”

-Tracii Guns – L.A. Guns

 “…. I love that guy! Colby is a natural, born to entertain!”

-Taime Downe – Faster Pussycat
