GUNS N’ ROSES gitarrist D.j. Ashba lämnar bandet för att lägga fokus på SIXX: A.M.
Det var i ett handskrivet brev som D.j. Ashba tog avsked av GUNS N’ ROSES och postade det som inlägg på sin officiella Facebooksida. I avskedsbrevet förklarar D.j Ashba att han lämnar GUNS N’ ROSES för att han vill lägga fokus på SIXX: AM och samtidigt passar han på att tacka Axl Rose för tiden i GUNS N’ ROSES.
“So now it is with a very heavy heart and yet great pride that I announce that I’ve decided to close this chapter of my life and encapsulate the wonderful times that I’ve shared with GUNS N’ ROSES into fond memories. I have reached a point in my life where I feel its time to dedicate myself to my band SIXX: A.M., my adoring wife and family, and to the many new adventures that the future holds for me.”
“I have always been driven by my passion for creating music and SIXX: A.M. has always been a place where I can express myself honestly and share that passion with my two brothers and bandmates, Nikki Sixx and James Michael. As you know I have also been blessed with the love and support of my incredible wife, Naty, who has been at my side for much of this amazing journey.”
“As I sit here writing this letter, I want to take a moment to thank Axl from the bottom of my heart for not only the most incredible experience of my life, but for truly believing in me. You are a true friend and a champion of mine and I am forever grateful. And even as I move on to pursue other endeavors, I will always remain one of your biggest fans. I also would like to thank each and every one of you fans for your love and support throughout the years. Without you, I am nothing. Please know that I do not take one minute of this amazing life for granted.”
