Guns N' Roses return with new guitarist and tour

Guns N' Roses' Axl Rose on-stage Guns N' Roses have announced that DJ Ashba as the band's new guitarist - an official replacement for Robin Finck. Ashba is best known for his work on Beautiful Creatures and Sixx AM.

The band, who haven't toured together since a set of Asian gigs in July 2007, have announced they will be hitting the road for a range of UK dates.

In a posting on the Guns N' Roses official website, Axl Rose spoke of his excitement about the band's newest member:

"Dj's a gifted, energetic guitarist that Guns N' Roses is proud to have on board!! We're very excited to have the opportunity to work together.

"Guns' radar has silently been aware of DJ's presence for quite some time. He brings a fresh approach to our particular brand of mayhem expanding the tapestry of Guns N' Roses live. Once DJ's name was in the hat, the hat disappeared!!"

DJ Ashba responded with a similar enthusiasm: "It's an honor to have the opportunity to be a part of a band that I have always loved and respected. I'm looking forward to working with Axl, who is not only one of the few great front men of our generation, but a true artist."
