New York, NY-Now is the time to reflect back upon the stunning achievements of one Gilby Clarke, singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer. Spitfire Records will do just that with the January 30, 2007 release of Gilby Clarke. The album includes 14 tracks from his muscular solo catalog, two from his days in the criminally-ignored Colonel Parker with ex-Stray Cat Slim Jim Phantom, and one re-recording of “Black†with Rock Star: Super Nova runner-up Dilana.

CBS-TV’s Rock Star: Super Nova put the former Guns N’ Roses guitarist (he replaced Izzy Stradlin) in a band with Metallica/Voivod bassist Jason Newsted and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee in a reality-show search for a lead singer. The show proved so successful, Gilby will be hitting the road with a touring version (with Train/Black Crowes bassist Johnny Colt and winning singer Lukas Rossi) kicking off in Las Vegas on New Year’s Eve.

This versatile guitar slinger, who feels as comfortable with Axl Rose as he does with Nancy Sinatra, Michael Jackson or the MC5, has also produced LA Guns and others. His career has been marked by a singular devotion to no-frills balls-out rock, whether he’s producing, singing his own material or collaborating with a wide assortment of artists.

Gilby Clarke, the album, derives its strength from its sinewy sonic dexterity, as taken from his catalog of meaty solo albums-Pawnshop Guitars (1994), The Hangover (1997), Rubber (1998), ’99 Live and Swag (2002). An eclectic and eccentric vision emerges on Gilby Clarke, bound together by a no-bullshit vernacular. This is one tough brand of no-nonsense muscle.
