Former Guns ‘N Roses guitarist/vocalist Gilby Clarke will deliver his latest ingle ‘Tightwad’ on 26th October through Golden Robot Records, and playing alongside him on the record are Motley Crue bass player Nikki Sixx and Jane’s Addiction drummer Stephen Perkin. Not a bad line-up, eh!
‘Tightwad’ is the follow up to his recent singles ‘The Gospel Truth’ and ‘Rock n’ Roll Is Getting Louder’.
“This song was written around a guitar riff I discovered while trying out a new fuzz pedal,” said Clarke. “Lyrically I was inspired by deceit, treachery and the creative extremes people will go through to get ahead. I tried to get my message through with humour, but if it hits to close to home, maybe we all should take a closer look at ourselves and make improvements.”
As for those accompanying him on the track he said:
“I was lucky to have some wonderful musician friends contribute to the recording of this track, Nikki Sixx & Stephen Perkins. Stephen, as always, came through with a beat that drives the song and Nikki found a cool bass groove that accentuates the feel I was looking for.”
