Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke released his debut solo album Pawnshop Guitars 25 years ago. It’s a collection of rootsy hard rock songs, featuring guest appearances by the other Guns N’ Roses members, guitarist Ryan Roxie, Pixies vocalist Frank Black and others. This lost classic contains some of his best songs, including the energetic rocking title track and The Rolling Stones cover “Dead Flowers”, featuring Axl Rose on vocals. Pure Rock ‘n’ Roll in the best way the ’90s will give to you.
