Robin Finck (born November 7, 1971) is the current lead guitarist of American industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails. He was also previously the lead guitarist of the American hard rock band Guns N' Roses. Finck is one of only a few artists listed in more than one of VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock"; Nine Inch Nails ranked #43 and Guns N' Roses placed at #9.
Finck grew up in Marietta, Georgia and played with several unsigned bands in the Atlanta area during and after attending high school at George Walton Comprehensive School. He joined Nine Inch Nails as part of their touring band in 1994-95. Once the tour was completed, he took a job playing for the circus troupe Cirque du Soleil in the original tour of Quidam and also playing guitar and keyboards live for Marilyn Manson during their first tours. In late 1996, he was recruited by Guns N' Roses to replace Slash, who had quit the band in 1996, and to work on an unreleased album, signing a two-year contract.
When the two years were up, the album was still far from completion, although one single, "Oh My God", despite being regarded as a demo (and to this day, the only official release), was featured on the End of Days soundtrack. Finck rejoined Nine Inch Nails as the band went on tour again. 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, Finck and Guns N' Roses toured Europe, playing in front of an estimated 750,000 people. They finished by touring North America for the remainder of the year. Chinese Democracy was released in 2008 on Geffen Records.
On April 4th, 2008, it was announced at nin.com that Finck was back to Nine Inch Nails, with whom he took part in the recording of their album The Slip.
Robin has been married to acrobat Bianca Sapetto since 2001. They met while working in Cirque du Soleil and currently have no children.
