What's about the life of Paul Tobias

Recommended Posts

I think that nobody knows anything about him since he gave his last show with Guns N 'Roses in The Joint, I'm curious what he does now, Will he continue making music? Will he be in another band? Leave your comments below :lol:

He’s been living in Axl’s vault eating scraps of CDII records to survive, which in turn is why that hasn’t been released yet.

Actually his last show was in RIR 2001, right?

His last shows were the shows at the Joint in late 2001

His last shows were the second set of House of Blues shows in late 2001

I think those shows were at The Joint (Dec 29 and Dec 31).

I saw his last show on New Years at The Joint at the Hard Rock.  I remember reading that Guns and the Psychedelic Furs had made a swap of Fortus for Tobias, but I've never heard a single thing since.

Theres some threads on here about this, if you go digging.

Hes popped up on a few recordings with the Brain/Bucket/Mel camp.  This means its possible that he's doing scoring/soundtrack work.  Which could be video games, commercials, movies, TV, or even corporate stuff.

I remember hearing that he was working a 'nondescript' job in finance.  (I always wonder that, if true, did Duff hire him to get Paul outta GNR - but since learned that apparently Duff never actually had a firm)

Theres also been the notion that, like Brain, he's still "in" GNR to some extent.  He was involved with the album long after leaving the road.  I would think that the Threeunion would have caused a re-evalution of Pauls presence in the camp?  Wild guess; in 2015 he got a severance package from GNR and is exploring options for the next phase of his life?

I do not think I believe Rose's explanation that he wanted to just work behind the scenes?

That was the official reason for his exit.

Yeah I think Paul being a "behind the scenes" guy ended the moment axl started considering reconnecting with slash in early 2014. He obviously didn't do enough with the band to just live off of royalties, so he probably had to find a normal job afterwards.
