Gun N’ Roses prominent guitarist/ co-founder (1985-1962) turned-Izzy Stradin and the Ju Ju Hounds cofounder turned-solo artist, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Izzy Stradlin, at the age of 53 now, has no girlfriend or wife as far we know.
The rock legend with massive $28 million dollars net worth is a tall man with the height of 5 feet and 11 inches. Moreover, he is also famous for his messy/shiny bangs hairstyle. Also, he is of slim body configuration.
Now, moving on to his personal life, he has been something like a dating merchant. His verified past relationships include Elena Isbell (married 2006), Ankeka Kreuter (married 1991-200), Suzette (1987), Monique Lewis (1985), Valeri Kendall (1984), and Adriana Smith (date unknown).
So, we guess the aforementioned information cancel out any gay rumors on him.
Interested in music since his childhood, Izzy was born in an average income family. Also, he couldn’t enjoy a stable family as a kid since his father and mother underwent an unfortunate divorce when he was just 8. However, young boy Izzy was happy growing up in Layafatte, a small town in Indiana.
There he spend his childhood listening to the likes of Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, Alice Cooper, and Led Zeppelin, and of course smoking pot, riding bikes plus getting into troubles.
If you didn’t know, GN’R lead vocalist Axel rose is Izzy’s school buddy. Furthermore, Axel and Izzy are thought to be the key figures who established the band as a brand. In fact, many people believe that it was Izzy’s songwriting skills that initially gave the band a classic touch.
The members of the band were so confident that they released their debut album just after two years from the establishment and nailed it. Undoubtedly, the band debut album “Appetite for Destruction” was a massive hit.
And again, it was Izzy who penned or co-wrote most of the songs of the album including stellar hits like “Sweet Child o’ Mine” and “Paradise city”. The album has sold over 28 million copies worldwide till this date.
Later in 1991, he left the band citing:
“When you’re fucked up, you’re more likely to put up with things you wouldn’t normally put up with.”
This statement came out of his heart back then because he turned to a sober man from a wild GN’R. Plus, his past wild GN’R experiences such as “urinating in public, “increasing tensions between the band members because of drug use”, and “dating each other girl-friend incidents” assisted him in the band disbandment decision.
The former GN’R rhythm guitar player in spite of going solo and forming his own blues based band collaborated with GN’R in several occasions. No wonder, Axel and Izzy still share a close friendship till this date.
Other wiki on his professional life can be accessed via Wikipedia’s biography on him, and his shining days shirtless pictures can be accessed via Google Picture Search. Furthermore, one may like to connect with the rock sensation (ethnicity – white) via social networking sites like Twitter and Instagram, but it’s kind of hysterical that such a prominent figure has neither twitter nor Instagram account. And, it’s shadier that the handsome gypsy looking man has no children.
If it’s the case then we must conclude that he prioritized his career over his relationships. And if it’s made shady, then we must conclude that he wants to keep his children out of such invasive popularity.
Yes, it’s true that he idolizes The Rolling Stones legend Keith Richards. More precisely, it was Keith who involuntarily inspired and encouraged Izzy to adopt a gypsy look, and get himself some cool classic guitars.
Surely, there are so many reasons to be inspired by Izzy. Simply, Izzy devotion to music will help us realize that the music with classical touch and even blues
Furthermore, his recent death rumors are certainly hoaxes. These sorts of rumor have been rising on the web because Izzy hasn’t published any of his new projects nor has given any new interview since past few years. But, we can confidently say that he is not dead. Here’s how.
The good news is he has plans to collaborate with his former GN’R mate Duff McKagan this year. The news was announced shortly after McKagan released his book “How to be a man” in April, 2015.
Lastly, Izzy’s most reputed solo albums include Smoke, Wave of Heat and Ride on.
