July 30, 2015

Guns N’ Roses’ drummer Frank Ferrer was a guest of “The Geoff Lenox Show” on Stone Chrome Radio this week and talked about his career, the recent resignation of G N’ R guitarist D.J. Ashba, and gave an inside look at life as a current member of the band.

Asked about some fan’s  speculation that Ashba exited Guns after getting news from singer Axl Rose about the future of the band, Ferrer said: “No, [we did] not [get any] new news, other than we’re still forging ahead. But not any, like, you know… It’s not really news. It’s, like, there’s a plan in place, and it’s happening, so that’s all I can say.”

He continued: “I haven’t spoken to D.J., but apparently D.J. would just, like… he’d rather do other stuff right now, which is cool. I mean, everything he said in that letter [announcing his departure] is true. I mean, he has a great relationship with the bandmembers and with Axl. Everything’s good.”
