Dizzy Reed Talks About His Time in Guns N’ Roses
Keyboardist Dizzy Reed, who is the longest-serving member of GUNS N’ ROSES after singer Axl Rose, talked about his thirty year run in the band during a recent interview with the “Thunder Underground” podcast.
He said (hear audio below): “How the heck has it been 30 years? [Laughs] Where did the time go?
“I’ve been so lucky and fortunate that I was ever asked to do this gig in the first place and that I’m still doing it,” he continued. “As long as they’ll have me, I’m gonna do it. And it’s been a great run. There’s been some long breaks, but those were being put to good use — writing and whatnot.”
Dizzy added: “It’s just been a blast. And these last three years have been fantastic. The turnouts have been amazing. And just to be a part of that, it’s pretty special. And I’m so fortunate, again. I thank my lucky stars every day, man — I really do.”
Reed is joined GUNS N’ ROSES as a touring member in 1990, during the “Use Your Illusion” era, and has played with most of the original members as well as in all the later editions of the group and the current “reunion” lineup.
Reed is currently working on his follow up to his solo album “Rock N’ Roll Ain’t Easy” which came out in February 2018. He is apparently working on a covers album.
