DJ Ashba Quits Guns N’ Roses

Guns N’ Roses guitarist D.J. Ashba has announced his departure from the band so he can focus on Sixx:A.M.

He says in a statement: “Six years ago, I received a call that changed my life forever. The call was from a dear friend of mine (Katie McNeil-Diamond) who was working with GUNS N’ ROSES. It was an offer to audition for Axl Rose and earn a role in arguably the biggest rock band of my time. While I thought it was a complete long shot, I decided to go ahead and give it a try. Much to my shock and surprise, I got the gig. And so began the most incredible journey I could have possibly imagined. I was blessed with the opportunity to not only work with one of the most talented bands, but also to share the stage with a living legend and a truly gifted human being, Axl Rose. The amount of confidence and trust that Axl placed in me was genuinely heartwarming and truly career-defining. So now it is with a very heavy heart and yet great pride that I announce that I’ve decided to close this chapter of my life. I feel its time to dedicate myself to my band SIXX: A.M., my adoring wife and family, and to the many new adventures that the future holds for me.”

Woman: Cousin Started Fire Because He Can’t Get With Me


A live local news interview got weird real quick after a woman accused her cousin of setting her house on fire because he couldn’t date her.

Officials are investigating the suspicious blaze, which started in a couple’s garage, then spread to a neighbor’s garage

When the reporter (from WKBN 27 in Youngstown, Ohio) asked the woman if she knew what caused the fire, she blamed her cousin, saying,

“He is mad because he can’t get with me. I am married to my husband.”

She then added, “It’s a long story.”

She also claimed her cousin had previously put her husband in the hospital before the reporter wrapped up his report with a straight face.

Authorities say charges have not been filed yet.

Would collecting DNA evidence at the scene even do any good if it’s all in the family? We’re not sure about all that because we do radio and not crime scene forensics. We do know this, though: Thanksgiving is gonna be pretty damn awkward this year.
