Gilby Clarke releases new video for single ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Is Getting Louder’
Ex Guns ‘N Roses and Snakepit guitarist Gilby Clarke released a new video for the single ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll Is Getting Louder’. The Christopher C. Pearson-directed clip was shot in Palmdale, California and downtown Los Angeles, while the band performance footage was filmed in Hollywood club Oh My Ribs! “Rock N Roll Is Getting Louder” is taken from Clarke’s first solo album in 15 years, “The Gospel Truth”, which will be released later this year via Golden Robot Records. The disc was produced and written by Gilby at his Los Angeles recording studio, Redrum Recording

Gilby stated about the track:
“The song is about having a rebellious spirit. Rock and roll means many things: rebelling, freedom and being who you are on your own terms — not following whatever’s now in vogue. Therefore, ‘Rock N Roll Is Getting Louder’ means ‘I am what I am, I won’t change that, and I stand up for things that are important to me, even if it’s not popular.‘”
Gilby’s live band members Bass Player, EJ Curse (Silent Rage, White Lion) and Drummer, Jimmy D’Anda (Bullet Boys, George Lynch) both appear in the clip along with some great cameo’s by Slim Jim Phantom (Stray Cats), Taime Downe (Faster Pussycat), Jimmy Herald (Hillbilly Herald) and Teddy ‘Zig Zag’ Andreadis (formally of Guns N’ Roses, Carole King, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Alice Cooper)
GILBY CLARKE has played in both Guns N’ Roses and The MC5. Before joining the Guns N’ Roses circus, Gilby was Kim Fowley’s go-to session guitarist and ghost writer. After playing with Hollywood bands Candy and Kill For Thrills a late-night call from Slash changed everything. Gilby joined Guns in ’91.
He appeared on the band’s Spaghetti Incident, Live Era ’88-’91and The Greatest Hitsalbums. Gilby spent years on the Use Your Illusion tour in the 90s.
After Guns imploded, armed only with his Les Paul, Gilby went back and launched his solo career.
Recording and/or touring over the lean years with Nancy Sinatra, Heart, The MC5 & his old bandmate Slash’s Snakepit, Gilby even snuck in videos with GNR,
Michael Jackson and Fall Out Boy
