GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Richard Fortus is selling an apartment in New York City. The two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op on the Lower East Side has been listed at $1.195 million.
On his personal Facebook page, Fortus linked to the listing by Corcoran, noting that the apartment had been featured in The New York Times' Real Estate section and the New York Post.
The listing describes the third-floor corner apartment as a "spectacular two-bedroom home with open views and a private terrace." The residence includes "a spa-like bathroom" with "a large soaking tub, marble vanity and sleek tiled storage areas for all the necessities."
There has been speculation about a new album from GUNS N' ROSES ever since three-fifths of its original lineup reunited in 2016 for the "Not In This Lifetime" tour.
Slash, singer Axl Rose and bassist Duff McKagan were joined on the reunion trek by Fortus, who hooked up with the latter-era GUNS lineup in 2001, drummer Frank Ferrer, longtime keyboardist Dizzy Reed and second keyboardist Melissa Reese. The tour is now one of the highest-grossing in music history.
Fortus got his big break when his band PALE DIVINE opened for THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS. This led to Fortus forming the band LOVE SPIT LOVE with PSYCHEDELIC FURS frontman Richard Butler and Ferrer. In 2000, Fortus and Ferrer became touring members of the reformed PSYCHEDELIC FURS before Fortus hooked up with GUNS N' ROSES. Ferrer himself joined GN'R in 2006.
