Richard Fortus, longtime guitarist with Guns and Roses, joins host James Patrick Regan in the new episode of “Have Guitar Will Travel.” Richard talks about growing up in St. Louis, where he studied violin and classical guitar at the Conservatory of the Arts, and saw many of his guitar heroes perform. In high school, he joined a band that signed a record deal and toured with the Psychedelic Furs – which he later joined. They also discuss his vintage instruments, his signature model Les Paul and Gretsch guitars, his tenure in Guns and Roses, and life as a session guitarist in New York City.
