MzHollywood has uploaded video footage of former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Gilby Clarke performing a cover version of the Bob Dylan song "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" (which has been famously covered by GUNS N' ROSES) at the Korg booth at the 2017 NAMM show, which was held this weekend at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. Backing Clarke for the performance were JANE'S ADDICTION drummer Stephen Perkins and bassist/vocalist EJ Curse.
Clarke replaced founding guitarist Izzy Stradlin in the GUNS lineup in 1991, during the "Use Your Illusion" tour, and stayed with the band for three years.
He has continued as a producer and solo artist since then, while also playing in ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA, HEART and other acts.
Clarke reunited with GUNS members Slash, Steven Adler, Matt Sorum and Duff McKagan at the band's Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction in April 14, 2012, although he himself was not inducted as part of the band.
Gilby is currently recording a new solo album that will feature guest appearances by Perkins and Matt Starr (ACE FREHLEY) along with members of Clarke's solo band, EJ Curse and Troy Patrick Farrell (drums/vocals).
"It has been a long time since I've put out a Gilby Clarke solo record," Gilby said in an interview last August. "So I just thought it was time. It had nothing to do with GUNS N' ROSES. It was just... I noticed when I've been talking to people out on the road that I haven't made a record in a long time. So it's time. And I finally have a good collection of songs that I really like, and I think they should be out. So I'm working on that."
