Richard Fortus Interview – Guns N’ Roses – Everyone Loves Guitar

Richard started playing music at age 4, and hasn’t stopped. Along the way he’s played or toured with the Psychedelic Furs and their singer Richard Butler… he’s had a busy career as a first-call session player in NYC, playing on records by Puffy, P!nk, Tom Tom Club, and others… and performed or recorded with Enrique Iglesias, Thin Lizzy, Nena, Fiona Apple, Rihanna, Jesse Malin, Angela McCluskey, the Crystal Method and others. His band The Dead Daisies have opened for or played with top rock acts

Richard talked about how he got the gig with GnR, 2 years after he first auditioned for the band…what he did to get introduced to the Psychedelic Furs… his vintage guitar collection… allowing the Universe to take care of you, and more. Really cool vibe on this one:
