Izzy Stradlin Releases New Single ‘Baby-Rann’
It’s been a couple of years since we were treated to new music from Izzy Stradlin, but the former Guns N’ Roses guitarist isn’t resting on his laurels — in fact, a YouTube video of Stradlin and his backing band perform a new single titled ‘Baby-Rann’ has surfaced.
A scorching uptempo rocker featuring a tasty solo from lead guitarist Rick Richards (who co-founded the Georgia Satellites before serving time in Izzy’s band the Ju Ju Hounds), ‘Baby-Rann’ finds Stradlin working with a crew that includes bassist J.T. Longoria and former Reverend Horton Heat drummer Taz Bentley. The video, which is can be seen below, was edited by Ed Shiers after being filmed at L.A.’s legendary Ocean Way Studios earlier this month.
‘Baby-Rann’ caps a year of sporadic activity for Stradlin, who skipped out on Guns N’ Roses’ induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April but turned up on the road with GN’R for a couple of London concerts in May. Perhaps, it serves as the first sign of a new album from the guitarist, who released a whopping five albums between 2007-10, but has been relatively quiet since putting out the iTunes-only ‘Wave of Heat’ in July of that year.
