Izzy Stradlin and the Ju Ju Hounds: Izzy Stradlin and the Ju Ju Hounds (Geffen).
And, yea, the misfit angel did tumble out of heaven as his domineering peers looked on in amazement and rage. And though the misfit abandoned his days of Guns N' Roses, he had no cause to worry. The wolves in creeps' clothing appeared by his side in the guise of Stoned Rollers Ron Wood, Ian McLagan and Nicky Hopkins. And as the cigarettes burned down, a miracle did occur. Fallen Izzy did begin to jangle & rock & whine & roll & reggae until he was a veritable outline of Keith Richards. And the shadow was dark and true, though a far kiss from Welcome To The Jungle. And while the disciples of The Gunners shall call him heretic, the faithful who abide by that old-time rock 'n' roll religion shall sing his praises. (M.L.M)
