Gilby Clarke recently told the story of why his stint with Guns N’ Roses came to an end after four years.

Clarke had replaced Izzy Stradlin in 1991, been fired in 1994, but had been reinstated shortly after due to a breakdown between Axl Rose and Slash.

“Axl and Slash were not seeing eye to eye: Axl saw the band one way; Slash saw it another way,” Clarke told Riki Rachtman’s Cathouse Hollywood Podcast (via Blabbermouth). “I didn’t see them meeting. It’s not like I was trying to be in the middle or whatever. It was fractured.”
