Former-Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke has tapped Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx and Jane's Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins for his latest single, "Tightwad." Clarke spoke about the track, explaining, "Lyrically I was inspired by deceit, treachery and the creative extremes people will go through to get ahead. I tried to get my message through with humor, but if it hits to close to home, maybe we all should take a closer look at ourselves & make improvements."
He went on to say "I was lucky to have some wonderful musician friends contribute to the recording of this track, Nikki Sixx & Stephen Perkins. Stephen, as always, came through with a beat that drives the song and Nikki found a cool bass groove that accentuates the feel I was looking for. I tried to get my message through with humor, but sometimes the truth hurts."
Gilby Clarke's latest solo album, titled The Gospel Truth, is set for release later this year.
