Claim to fame:
Izzy Stradlin is the quiet guy in the background of Guns N Roses, the rhythm guitar player. Apparently his bandmates used to call him "Mr. Invisible".
He knew trouble when he saw it and left the band in mid-tour in 1991.
Where are they now?
He quickly formed Izzy Stradlin & the Ju Ju Hounds and released a solo album in 1992 before dissolving the group.
He took a few years off and devoted time to his hobbies: motorcycles and racing, going so far as to build a racetrack near his home.
Besides an abortive reunion with ex-bandmate Duff McKagan called The Project which was later dropped by Geffen, his later solo projects include Ride On in 2001 and then On Down the Road in 2002
