There is a saying in the music industry, “Have Guitar, Will Travel!” Elvis’ guitarist Scotty Moore recorded an instrumental of that name in 1958 and Bo Diddley titled an album by that name in 1960. The saying definitely fits Guns N’ Roses and The Dead Daisies guitarist Richard Fortus. His resume of session work and bands is a rather vast & impressive list, from Love Spit Love, Puff Daddy, The Psychedelic Furs, ‘N Sync, Ben Folds, The Crystal Method up through his tenure with Guns N’ Roses & The Dead Daisies.There is no doubting Richard Fortus’ talent. I discovered through our seventy-five minute long conversation that not only is he insanely talented but he is also a very funny, down-to-earth and humble person. Traits that have no doubt helped him enjoy the career he has had. I found our conversation to be very informative and even learned a thing or two that wasn’t known until now. Richard will take readers on a very in-depth journey through the writing and recording of The Dead Daisies new album, “Revolución”, due in stores on July 31st.
