Original GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Izzy Stradlin has released a new single, “Baby-Rann”. It features Izzy on guitar and vocals, bassist J.T. Longoria, JU JU HOUND guitarist Rick Richards and ex-REVEREND HORTON HEAT drummer Taz Bentley. The video below was edited by Ed Shiers and filmed earlier this month at Oceanway Studios in Hollywood, California.
Stradlin‘s last two iTunes-only albums, “Smoke” (December 2009) and “Wave Of Heat” (July 2010) featured guest appearances by Stradlin‘s former GUNS N’ ROSES bandmate Duff McKagan (bass).
In 2010, Stradlin appeared as a guest on his former GN’R bandmate Slash‘s first solo album. He performs rhythm guitar on the first track, “Ghost”.
Both Izzy and GUNS N’ ROSES lead singer Axl Rose skipped the band’s April 2012 induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
Stradlin issued a statement the week before the induction, thanking his bandmates, the Hall Of Fame for “the acknowledgment of our works over the years,” and the fans who “have supported GUNS N’ ROSES from day one.”
