Former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Izzy Stradlin's upcoming solo album, entitled On Down The Road, is not the widely-anticipated collaboration between Izzy and ex-GNR bandmates Slash (guitar) and Duff McKagan (bass). Instead, the album features the same line-up as the one responsible for Izzy's River CD: Stradlin on guitar and vocals, Duff on bass, Rick Richards on lead guitar, Taz on drums, and Ian on keys.
On Down The Road is due to be released through Universal Victor Records in Japan during August.
In other news, a Dee Dee Ramone tribute concert is due to be held tonight at the Key Club in Hollywood, and among the performances lined up for the evening is an "All Star Tribute Jam" featuring members of GUNS N' ROSES, according to a recent ad for the show.
Also on the GNR front, McKagan's LOADED will be playing at the "grand opening" of Club Vodka in Hollywood on Thursday, June 27th.
