DJ Ashba: 'I Can Honestly Bring Something Cool to the Table for GN'R Future'
Guns N' Roses guitarist DJ Ashba recently discussed the experience of playing with one of the biggest rock bands of all time, pointing out his belief that he can contribute to the band's future output in a positive way.

Chatting with 100.3 the X Rocks, the axeman also explained why he couldn't turn down the GN'R gig, saying, "I'm still a fan of Guns - I always will be - and that's the only reason I'm in this band. I felt really connected to the band - I grew up cutting my teeth on the guitar style - so, for me, it was like putting on a glove; it felt natural. I turned down quite a few big gigs, and this is one that I just couldn't turn down.

"I felt like I had something I could offer," Ashba continued (via Blabbermouth). "As a songwriter and producer, I feel like I can honestly bring something cool to the table for the future of this band. So that's why I'm here; not so much to play guitar."

Switching to the matter of Sixx: A.M. future plans, DJ added, "We're planning on doing some really cool new stuff - like something really super-special for the fans. We're talking about touring, but not anytime soon, so instead, we're gonna do something that I think fans are gonna really love."
