Happy Birthday Gilby Clarke!

Gilby Clarke, of Guns ‘n Roses fame, celebrates a birthday today.  This versatile singer, guitarist and songwriter, lives and breathes rock ‘n roll and has played guitar for the likes of MC5, Heart, Nancy Sinatra, and RockStar: Supernova.

Starting off in a band named Candy, he moved on to Kill for Thrills, before replacing Izzy Stradlin, in Guns n’ Roses, with whom he toured for the Use Your Illusion World Tour.  After Guns ‘n Roses, Clarke went out on his own with a Les Paul guitar and his own songs.  In 2007 he released a compilation album of his solo hits.
