Robin Finck Leaves Guns n' Roses
Robin Finck exits G n' R, rejoins Nine Inch Nails
Robin Finck's days with Guns n'
Roses -- all 730 of them -- are
up. The guitarist who replaced
founding member Slash has left
the band to rejoin his former
group, Nine Inch Nails.
"Robin Finck will be touring with
Nine Inch Nails," says a
spokesperson at NIN's label,
Nothing Records. When exactly that tour will begin
is unknown. What is known, according to a
spokesperson at G n' R's label, is "[Finck] has
finished recording several albums' worth of material
with Guns n' Roses and Axl [Rose] is now working
on vocals for the album."
Finck reportedly was under contract with G n' R for
two years, and that deal expired on Sunday, August
1. Other G n' R "members" drummer Josh Freese
and bassist Tommy Stinson are believed to have
joined the recording line-up of G n' R after Finck, so
the status of their respective contracts, provided
similar agreements exist, is unknown. Other group
contributors include longtime Rose ally/guitarist
Paul Huge and Use Your Illusion I & II keyboardist
BLAIR R. FISCHER
