"Guns N' Roses and Reunion Blues all wrapped up into one. I can die now."
Axl on Fortus, "... We're fortunate to have found Richard who has this vibe kind of like Izzy but with amazing feel. The first thing I heard Richard play was the beginning of "Stray Cat Blues" by the Stones and he did it with the right feel. Richard likes to play rhythm.
He's an amazing lead player and very technically skilled. He really likes the pocket that Brain sets so we finally have the real deal rhythm section, as Richard is a proven professional. Basically, Richard's the guy that we always were looking for. I think that we'll go on to write some very interesting things with Richard and he's already done some rhythm work and some leads on the album."
All of us at Reunion Blues are proud to be associated with such a monster talent as Richard Fortus.
