If you want to know what Guns and Roses are up to then don’t ask their guitarist Richard Fortus. In a recent interview, he admitted that he has no idea what is going on with his band. “The last I heard they wanted to finish up the recordings that we have and put them out next year and start touring. But it has been a while since I’ve heard from anybody in that camp as far as management or Axl. So I really don’t know”.
Gotta admire the man’s honesty. Fortus has been a part of the band since 2001 and clearly has a healthy respect for his frontman, the ever elusive Axl Rose. In the interview he praised Axl, commenting that he has “never met anyone with as much musical and artistic integrity“. Awesome, but maybe he could give you a phone call every now and then, hey Richard?
