Nikki Sixx (Mötley Crüe) And Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction) Guest On New Gilby Clarke (Ex-Guns N’ Roses) Song “Tightwad”

Gilby Clarke (ex-Guns N’ Roses) has premiered a new song titled “Tightwad.” The track, which features Nikki Sixx (Mötley Crüe) and Stephen Perkins (Jane’s Addiction), will appear on Clarke’s upcoming album “The Gospel Truth.”

Clarke commented:

“This song was written around a guitar riff I discovered while trying out a new fuzz pedal. Lyrically I was inspired by deceit, treachery and the creative extremes people will go through to get ahead. I tried to get my message through with humor, but if it hits to close to home, maybe we all should take a closer look at ourselves and make improvements.

I was lucky to have some wonderful musician friends contribute to the recording of this track, Nikki Sixx and Stephen Perkins. Stephen, as always, came through with a beat that drives the song and Nikki found a cool bass groove that accentuates the feel I was looking for. I tried to get my message through with humor, but sometimes the truth hurts.”
