In a recent interview with Guitar Jam Daily, Gilby Clarke spoke about his early years as a struggling artist. "I moved from Ohio to California when I just started high school," he said. "I found that music was a great way to make new friends in California. I had just started playing guitar at that time. In my first band I played guitar and sang. I joined CANDY as a guitarist. CANDY was a local Hollywood band that was just starting to draw around town. We were headlining clubs like the Whiskey, Troubadour and the Roxy without a deal. We eventually got a deal, made a record, toured and lived the life. CANDY did all these things without a manager, agent, etc., we got all those things once we got signed, but that's when everything fell apart. I've noticed even though I've had managers, agents, etc.,I've gotten all my best gigs without them. All my bands including CANDY, KILL FOR THRILLS and my solo deals, I got with out representation. I got the GN'R gig, ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA on my own too."
