NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Gilby Clarke (3223 words)
The Hangover is the second solo album by the former Guns N Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke, released in 1997.
Clarke explained that it is difficult getting other guitar gigs now, since there aren’t many bands that want a new member who once played with Guns 'n Roses because it becomes distracting to their fans and takes away from the main act.
Clarke's guitar is only occasionally as sharp as it's been in the past, the songwriting isn't quite as tight and the whole thing still has a kind of 80s retro feel to it.
