Izzy Strummin?

Former G'N'R guitarist Izzy Stradlin has just released a brand new all-acoustic album entitled "Fire". According to Izzy, the LP was recorded in California this past summer and contains "very basic recordings," featuring two guitars with one playing slide.

Commented Stradlin: "It was a fun album to make. There are two songs I co-wrote with an old friend of mine... Timo Kaltia [guitarist/songwriter]. He lives in the UK. The songs are 'Box' and 'Seems to Me'. The writing started with those two songs and I took off from there."
