Jail Guitar Doors

Let me tell you bout Wayne and his deals of
A little more every day
Holding for a friend till the band do well
Then the D.E.A. locked him away

Clang clang, go the jail guitar doors
Bang bang, go the boots on the floor
Cry cry, for your lonely mother's son
Clang clang, go the jail guitar doors

An' I'll tell you 'bout Pete, didn't want no fame
Gave all his money away
"Well there's something wrong, it'll be good for you, son"
And so they certified him insane

And then there's Keith, waiting for trial
Twenty-five thousand bail
If he goes down you won't hear his sound
But his friends carry on anyway
Fuck 'em!
Jail guitar doors
54/46 was my number
Jail guitar doors
Right now someone else has that number

Originally by The Clash.

Following on the heels of band-mate Duff McKagan's solo album, newest Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke's debut solo release, PAWNSHOP GUITARS, reveals roots which run deep into a foundation of T-Rex, the Rolling Stones, and the power-pop of groups like the Beatles and Cheap Trick. Chunky riffs and unabashed choruses abound, as do guest artists. McKagan appears behind the skins to round out a power trio of Clarke and ex-Pixie Frank Black on a cover of The Clash's "Jail Guitar Doors." The rest of G N'R also pops up on PAWNSHOP GUITARS: Slash's unmistakable leads drive "Cure Me Or Kill Me," while keyboardist Dizzy Reed's Mellotron mastery and drummer Matt Sorum's timely playing lend a "Magical Mystery Tour"-like air to "Black." Clarke's rendition of the Stones' "Dead Flowers" boasts producer Waddy Wachtel's lead guitar playing, Skid Row drummer Rob Affuso bashing away on skins, and W. Axl Rose pounding on a piano and contributing some unmistakable background vocals.
