The Big Kahuna Hard Music, News, Tours

Gilby Clarke embarks with his solo band on a Canadian micro tour – kicking off in Barrie, ON at Mavericks. The Gilby Clarke band is a well-oiled three-piece that comprises of Gilby Clarke (vocals/guitar), EJ Curse (bass) and Dustin Steinke (drums). Opening up the night is Ontario’s very own The Road Heavy!



Clarke will also circle back to Toronto on September 30th to The Opera House for the KISS CF Goodbye charity benefit concert. This special concert will raise awareness and funds for Cystic Fibrosis – the most common fatal genetic disease affecting Canadian children and young adults. At present, there is no cure. CF is a multi-system disorder that mainly affects the digestive system and lungs.


Joining Clarke at this charity event will be: Rock And Roll Over (KISS Tribute), Ozone Baby (Led Zeppelin Tribute), Staring At The Sun (U2 Tribute).?


Best known for his tour of duty with Guns n’ Roses, Gilby Clarke was 17 when he traded Cleveland for Hollywood. A troubadour in the Ronnie Wood tradition: a barroom brawler with a Stones-y swagger, plus a catalog of well-written ditties. Clarke joined Guns in the early 90’s as the Use Your Illusion tour kicked off. He appeared on the bands Spaghetti Incident, Live Era ’88-’91 & Greatest Hits albums. Surviving the longest tour in history – Clarke went solo & came out swinging with PawnShop Guitars. A catalog of rock n roll purity: Tijuana Jail, Cure Me… Or Kill Me… & The Stone’s Dead Flowers put this record on many year-end top 10 lists.
