INTERVIEW AND PHOTOS BY MARKO SYRJALA

Brent Fitz is a Canadian musician, multi-instrumentalist and the drummer of ex-Guns’ N Roses guitarist Slash’s solo band. Previously, he has played with Alice Cooper, Vince Neil and Econoline Crush among others. At the end of the 1990s he had a band called Union with Bruce Kulick (ex -KISS) and John Corabi (ex -Motley Crue). But nowadays Fitz plays with Slash’s solo band where he joined in 2010. The band’s current line-up has recorded two studio albums, the latest WORLD ON FIRE was released in 2014. I met a good-humored Fitz last June in Sweden Rock Festival. We discussed Fitz’s own Guns’n Roses/Slash’s history, about how he ended up in the band, and what the future might bring. We also talked about his time in the Union and what all it takes to be able to end up in a position where he currently is. Read on!

INTERVIEW AND PICTURES BY MARKO SYRJALA

Drummer Brent Fitz, currently with ECONOLINE CRUSH, is probably best known to many for his great work alongside Bruce Kulick [ex-KISS], John Corabi [ex-MÖTLEY CRÜE] and James Hunting in UNION. Together they recorded and put out three classic albums, the self-titled in 1998 and THE BLUE ROOM in 2000 as well as a live record. He has thereupon, among other things, toured with VINCE NEIL [of MÖTLEY CRÜE] and can be heard on the 2003 live album LIVE AT THE WHISKY. Earlier this year, while his friend Eric Singer was away touring with KISS, Brent helped out in ALICE COOPER  when band was doing a string of shows in Australia. This is when we managed to catch up with him for some cool insights on his career.
