Three Minutes With…Gilby Clarke
The first time you probably remember seeing him was in Guns N’ Roses in the early 90s. (Unless you’re my mom, then he’s “that other smart guy who did that show with Dave Navarro”, which is referring to Rockstar: Supernova from 2005-2006-ish.) He’s also released several solo albums and produced a number of other acts as well. I caught up with Gilby before he played at Wasted Space at the Hard Rock Hotel over Memorial Day Weekend, and he did like few others have done before – gone two rounds with the “Sack O’ Questions”!
What’s the wackiest question you’ve ever been asked?
What is the wackiest question…. Oh my gosh! You stumped me on the first one! What’s the wackiest question I’ve ever been asked? You stumped me! I can’t think of anything crazy… Let’s move on and go back to that one….
Alright. The other one you picked was – if you became President of the United States, what would your first order of business be?
If I was President, what would be the first thing I’d do? That’s good, because that’s a job I actually want. I would say, the first thing I would do is get rid of pennies. Get rid of pennies, we don’t need pennies anymore. I say we get rid of pennies!!!!!
Okay, now you wanna go back to the wackiest question?
The wackiest question I’ve ever been asked is what would I do if I was named President of the United States for a day.
Yeah, that’s about right! So now, you can plug whatever you’ve got going on.
Well, we’re on the road right now! We actually started playing some dates. We’re gonna go to the Midwest, come home, then we’re gonna out to Texas. Everything’s on GilbyClarke.com or gilbygtr.blogspot.com
