Mitch Lafon interviewed Buckcherry guitarist Stevie D. today (August 26, 2020) and Stevie announced that Buckcherry’s new guitarist is Jetboy guitarist Billy Rowe.
Rowe replaces Kevin Roentgen who announced his departure from the band earlier this week.
Stevie commented that Rowe and Buckcherry come from the same scene, are close in age, and that Rowe would add a lot to the band since he comes from the same roots as Buckcherry - AC/DC, Rolling Stones, and elements of Punk. Stevie added that Rowe was also a great slide guitar player and that was a plus.
Rowe has been writing and recording new music with Buckcherry and there are plans to tour once Covid is under control.
