DJ Ashba quits Guns N' Roses

Recommended Posts

After this I have a feeling that Fortus will say that he will be touring and making music and concentrating on Dead Daises......

Dead Daisies is doing really well, especially in Australia. If Fortus has any sense he'll commit to them full time. There's only one person in Guns N' Roses who clearly has no future in music and that's Axl.

So, why wasn't Bumblefoot allowed to announce his exit from the band? :question:

.

I was wondering the same thing, actually...

Either way, best of luck to DJ. I'm sure he'll be just fine in Sixx AM where I honestly believe he's more fit. It'll be interesting to see what's next and if Axl or anyone else from the camp says anything.

The band is not over yet. They still have their sub-bass player. If they lose him, all goes to hell

Is it possible that Bumble said "it's him or me" and hasn't announced he was leaving so that he could come back in if Dj quit? That just occurred to me...

He has clearly not heard of the lower case, DJ, but at least he wrote it out by hand. Refreshing to see in this day-and-age.

Great question! I'm thinking DJ's exit was not planned and discussed beforehand, which explains the public letter. I think that from 2001 til present, DJ may be the only player to announce his own departure.

While I really enjoyed seeing this incarnation twice, I am conflicted. I would love to see a classic reunion some time, but also want to see an even newer lineup with some replacements.

Bring back Robin?

As I said a few days ago, if your interest is in new music versus another tour, this development should be considered as good news. I can also confirm that regardless of who is in the band and who is out of the band, work continues on new material.

Any info on why Axl can tweet inanities but chooses to filter any news about progress on his music third or fourth-hand through the moderator of an unofficial forum? Not meaning to be facetious, I just genuinely don't get it. Axl is either happy for people to know he's working on music or he isn't. If he is, why doesn't he say so himself? Edited by tomfriend

But writing by hand only to post pictures of his hand writing on the internet seems a bit pretentious doesn't it? :lol:

Ok, with Ashba officially out, it's now up to reunion or we will never see Guns N' Roses again I guess.

Ashba's farewell letter:

To Each and Every One Of You,

6 years ago I received a call that changed my life forever. The call was from a dear friend of mine (Katie McNeil-Diamond) who was working with Guns N’ Roses. It was an offer to audition for Axl Rose and earn a role in arguably the biggest rock band of my time. While I thought it was a complete long-shot, I decided to go ahead and give it a try. Much to my shock and surprise, I got the gig. And so began the most incredible journey I could have possibly imagined. I was blessed with the opportunity to not only work with one of the most talented bands but also to share the stage with a living legend and a truly gifted human being, Axl Rose. The amount of confidence and trust that Axl placed in me was genuinely heartwarming and truly career-defining. In the years that followed I traveled the world many times over and played these incredible songs night after night to the most enthusiastic and loving crowds. As you can imagine, the friendships that were forged during that time were deep and long lasting. But the most beautiful surprise of all was YOU... the fans. You welcomed me into your lives with open arms and showed me love and support that I could only have dreamed of. From the very first time I stepped on stage and started playing "Welcome To The Jungle," and felt the crowd erupt, I knew my life would never be the same. I'm not gonna lie...I was terrified!! But you were so accepting. You immediately turned my fear into pride. For that, I am truly grateful.

So now it is with a very heavy heart and yet great pride that I announce that I've decided to close this chapter of my life and encapsulate the wonderful times that I've shared with Guns N’ Roses into fond memories. I have reached a point in my life where I feel its time to dedicate myself to my band Sixx:A.M., my adoring wife and family, and to the many new adventures that the future holds for me. I have always been driven by my passion for creating music and Sixx:A.M. has always been a place where I can express myself honestly and share that passion with my two brothers and bandmates, Nikki Sixx and James Michael. As you know I have also been blessed with the love and support of my incredible wife, Naty, who has been at my side for much of this amazing journey.

As I sit here writing this letter, I want to take a moment to thank Axl from the bottom of my heart for not only the most incredible experience of my life, but for truly believing in me. You are a true friend and a champion of mine and I am forever grateful. And even as I move on to pursue other endeavors, I will always remain one of your biggest fans. I also would like to thank each and every one of you fans for your love and support throughout the years. Without you, I am nothing. Please know that I do not take one minute of this amazing life for granted.

I hope that you all join me as I forge ahead. Let's conquer the world together!

With love and respect,

Dj Ashba

YES!!! ^_^ The is the best GnR news in many years!

It's only the only thing Ashba has ever done that I respect.

And honestly, fuck the travesty they've turned Guns n' Roses in to. Reunion or retirement (of at least the GnR name) are the only dignified things to do.
