Following his success as a prominent rock songwriter, writing and co-writing several songs for Guns N' Roses, Brother Cane, Phantom Blue, Asphalt Ballet and Duff McKagan, guitarist West Arkeen started his own project, The Outpatience, in 1995. The groups lineup was rounded up by vocalist Mike Shotton of Von Groove, guitarist Joey Hunting of Billy Joel David Lee Roth and Dear Mr. President/ Flesh & Blood, bassist James Hunting of Eddie Money and David Lee Roth, drummer Abe Laboriel Jr. of Paul McCartney Seal and keyboardist Gregg Buchwalter. They recorded their debut album Anxious Disease which featured notable guests such as Guns N' Roses members Axl Rose, Slash, Izzy Stradlin and Duff McKagan as well as guitarist Steve Stevens. The album was produced by Noel Golden, whose credits include Slash's Snakepit, Neurotic Outsiders and the Beth Hard Band, and co-produced by Arkeen. The album was also mixed by Duane Baron, whose credits include Ozzy Osbourne, Mötley Crüe and Poison.[1] It was released in Japan in 1996 and were shopping the record to labels in the States however six months on May 30, 1997, Arkeen was found dead in his Los Angeles home.
