GUNS N' ROSES Guitarist RICHARD FORTUS To Reunite With Former Band PALE DIVINE

According to a posting on the GUNS N' ROSES fan site GnrDaily.com, GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Richard Fortus will reunite with his old band PALE DIVINE on December 29 at the Pageant in St Louis, Missouri.

PALE DIVINE was a local St. Louis band who later changed its name to THE EYES. The four-piece alternative group independently released "Freedom In A Cage", which was produced by David Probst. They became hugely popular for their live shows as they mixed their originals with underground covers from such bands as RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS and BAUHAUS. Drawing from the likes of JIMI HENDRIX and STEVIE RAY VAUGHAN, the flamboyant and original Fortus led THE EYES into being a premiere act dominated by their dark image, high energy, and fantastically produced sound. They were eventually signed by Atlantic Records and subsequently toured the U.S. with THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS in support of their only album, "Straight To Goodbye".
