SIN CITY PRESENTS MAGAZINE | MAY 2021

The highly-anticipated album from Gilby Clarke was released on Golden Robot Records April 23, 2021. It has been exactly two decades since his previous original release ‘Swag’! Ironically, the album has been done for quite some time… However with the onset of Covid, the album sat idle until timing was right. Lucky for us, the timing is now right! Not only is the album out; they had an album release party in my hometown of St. Louis, MO the same night at the Casa Loma Ballroom.

 

Gilby brought in some extra players including Nikki Sixx, (Mötley Crüe) Stephen Perkins (Janes Addiction/Porno For Pyro/Infectious Grooves), and Kenny Aronoff (John Mellencamp/Chickenfoot). However, Gilby still has his staple live band members Troy Patrick Farrell, EJ Curse, and Teddy “Zig Zag” Andreadis, with special guest St. Louis’ own Sam Bam Koltun at the album release party.

 

If you are looking for some good time rock ‘n’ roll fun with crunchy loud guitars, an upbeat vibe, and great lyrics, this is the place to go. Check out Gilby Clarke ‘The Gospel Truth.’ No, it’s not a gospel album. It’s “Gilby‘s truth…”

 

For those not that familiar with Gilby Clarke, I strongly recommend diving into his past catalog. Not only has he released six albums as a solo artist, he has also put out albums with side project Colonel Parker and Slash’s Snakepit. His first band was called Candy.

They put out a super fun album in 1985 that was actually called ‘Whatever Happened to Fun’ and ‘Teenage Neon Jungle’ in 2003 which was live songs, rare tracks, and demos. Gilby released two albums and a few videos with his second band Kill For Thrills. And of course, you all know him for the three albums and years spent touring with the infamous Guns N’ Roses! 

 

On top of all that, Gilby has produced albums from several artists, including L.A. Guns, The Bronx, and Girlsplayboys.

 

D’monic, You can take it from here! thank you for reviewing ‘The Gospel Truth.’
