Dizzy Reed is now the second-longest tenured member of Guns N’ Roses, having been with the band for 25 years. The keyboardist recently stopped by our studio to discuss his new band the Dead Daisies, but was also gracious enough to offer his thoughts on Guns N’ Roses’ past, present and future.
We asked Reed about Guns N’ Roses plans for a new album, and what he could tell us about the material that’s already been recorded. We also wanted to know what he felt the biggest misconception about Axl Rose is, and he was quick to point out that the singer is not the person he’s made out to be in the press.
Reed also shared his memories of recording GN’R’s ‘Use Your Illusion’ albums, and offered his thoughts on the fans’ desire for the “classic” members of the band to reunite.
He gave us answers to all those questions, so if you want to know what’s happening with Guns N’ Roses, check out the video interview above. And if you don’t have a copy of the Dead Daisies new album Revolución, you can pick it up at iTunes.
