Robin Fink Career and Profile

Profile :
Robin Finck was born on November 7, 1971, he is an American guitarist, currently the lead guitarist for Nine Inch Nails and former lead guitarist of Guns N' Roses. In April 2008, it was announced via that Finck would be rejoining Nine Inch Nails. Finck is one of only a few artists who has played in two different bands listed on VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock", Nine Inch Nails.

Career :
Finck grew up in Marietta, Georgia and like some young teenagers played with several unsigned bands; in his case, primarily in the Atlanta area, with acts such as Prowess, Bat Your Lashes, and Sik Dik (bandmates of which included Steve "Holiday" Childress and Michael Allen, currently of The Goodies and Greg Thum), and Impotent Sea Snakes.

He joined Nine Inch Nails as part of their touring band in 1994-95 for their Self-Destruct and Further Down the Spiral tours. Finck appeared with Nine Inch Nails at Woodstock '94, and saw his first official release with them, the Closure video, released in 1997. Once the tour was completed, he took a job playing for the circus troupe Cirque du Soleil in the original tour of Quidam. In 1997, he was recruited by Guns N' Roses to replace Slash, who had just quit the band at the end of the previous year, and worked on their recently released album Chinese Democracy, signing a two-year contract. When the two years were up, the album had not been completed, however, one single was released; Oh My God, featured on the End of Days Soundtrack.

Finck rejoined Nine Inch Nails as the band embarked on their Fragility v1.0 and Fragility v2.0 tours. These tours saw the release of another live album/DVD, And All That Could Have Been, Finck's second release with them.

Shortly after the tour ended in late 2000, he returned to Guns N' Roses and toured with them in Brazil, Asia, Europe and North America during 2001-2002.
In the summer of 2006, Guns N' Roses toured Europe playing in front of over 700,000 people.[5] They finished up by touring North America for the remainder of the year. The following year, Guns N' Roses toured in Mexico, Australia and Japan.

On April 4th 2008, it was announced at that Finck would be rejoining Nine Inch Nails, most likely for touring purposes, and possibly for future records. Finck played most if not all guitars on the Nine Inch Nails album The Slip

When Guns N' Roses' long awaited album Chinese Democracy was released in November 2008, GNR were unable to announce future plans as Finck was touring with NIN at the time. Finck has co-writing credits on "Better" which was later released as a single. Finck also played on every track and has 6 Guitar solos on the album.

Robin Finck mainly uses Gibson Les Paul guitars with variations in woods and pickups between them, and has also started playing a Jerry Jones Baritone and a Fender Jazzmaster guitar, in addition to the Les Pauls since re-joining Nine Inch Nails. He also uses his wah pedal to get unusual sounds for solos, and has been known to shove the body of the guitar up against the speakers of his amplifiers for even more unusual sounds. In Nine Inch Nails, he also plays lap steel guitar with effects pedals mounted to the body (for further sound manipulation purposes) for the songs off of Year Zero (album) with a pick or e-bow, and can play ukulele and mandolin, as revealed on the Lights in the Sky tour. Finck has also been known to collaborate with the rest of Nine Inch Nails to change certain parts and arrangements of the songs for the live performance aspect. Live performances of songs such as "The Wretched" and "In This Twilight" feature this influence, with parts and arrangements often being drastically changed.

As an adult, after recovering repressed memories in therapy, Rose publicly stated that he was sexually abused by his biological father.Wlliam Bruce is an American musician, best known as the lead vocalist of hard rock band Guns N' Roses.

As lead singer for Guns N' Roses, Rose enjoyed tremendous success, recognition, record and concert ticket sales in the late 1980s and early 1990s before dropping out of the public eye for several years. In 2001, he resurfaced with a new line-up of Guns N' Roses, and has since played periodic concert tours, finally releasing the long delayed Chinese Democracy in 2008.

Robert aTrujillo : Profile and Picture

Robert Trujillo Profile :
Roberto Trujillo (IPA: [ro'βeɾto tɾu'hijo]) (born on October 23, 1964[1]) is a bassist who played with Suicidal Tendencies, Infectious Grooves, Black Label Society, Jerry Cantrell, and Ozzy Osbourne's band before joining Metallica in 2003
He played in a few local bands before joining Suicidal Tendencies (in 1989) and fellow Culver City native, Rocky George, the guitarist for the band at the time. Trujillo replaced the band's second bassist Bob Heathcote. He is responsible for adding in funk influences to the band seen prominently on albums Lights...Camera...Revolution! and especially on The Art of Rebellion. He eventually turned bandmate Mike Muir on to funk music, and the two formed Infectious Grooves to play more funk oriented music.

He was a member of Ozzy Osbourne's band for a number of years starting in the late 90s. Trujillo was the subject of controversy for re-recording Bob Daisley's bass tracks for reissued versions of Osbourne's albums Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman due to Daisley's claim of not receiving proper royalties. (Similarly, Osbourne's drummer Mike Bordin re-recorded drum parts originally done by Lee Kerslake, who was also involved in the royalty dispute.) This achieved additional notoriety for giving no notice to the buying public on the outside of the CD that they were not purchasing an original recording.
Robert Trujillo became Metallica's bassist on February 24, 2003 after auditioning for the band and fitting in with fellow band members James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, and Kirk Hammett. Trujillo received one million dollars from the band as an advance on the percentage he would earn by being in Metallica. His audition and hiring appear in the documentary film Some Kind of Monster. His debut studio album with Metallica, Death Magnetic, was released on September 12, 2008.
Also in 2003, Trujillo was seen playing an upright bass in the Nickel Creek music video, Smoothie Song. However, he did not play bass for the band during the song's recording.
