"Rock bassist" isn't exactly the most financially stable career, but Duff McKagan has proven an exception to the rule -- not only by virtue of his membership in major bands like Guns 'N' Roses and Velvet Revolver, but also because of the dollar sense he picked up when he enrolled in college later in life.
After a few decades on the road, Duff McKagan has learned a thing or two about how to keep people from going crazy when they're stuck with each other for extended periods of time. The former Guns N' Roses bassist shared a bit of that wisdom in his latest column for the Seattle Weekly, titled 'Top 12 Tour Bus Rules and No-Nos.'
The trailer for 'It's So Easy and Other Lies,' the wild and redemptive documentary tracing the rise and fall of former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan, is now available online. You can watch it above.
Duff McKagan is taking a little different approach to promoting 'The Taking' album, as he's got a full-length film that goes along with the music. McKagan and his band Loaded intend to show off the new movie in a series of 10 vignettes that will roll out on the band's YouTube page.
Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan writes a weekly column for the Seattle Weekly, and this week he revealed that the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 threw him into a deep depression. McKagan said he had wondered why others just couldn't "snap out of it" before 9/11 happened.
When former Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan isn’t rocking out on stage with one of his bands Velvet Revolver or Loaded, he pens a regular column for ‘Seattle Weekly’ that covers everything from sports to politics and of course music. In his latest column, the legendary bassist digs a little deeper into the music scene, interviewing Jack White who recently released his solo debut ‘Blunderbuss.’
Slash fans in Seattle were treated to a 'mini Guns 'N Roses reunion' Friday night when Duff McKagan popped up at the former's show at the Showbox SoDo.
Slash and Duff were last seen onstage together at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony back in April, so needless to say, the crowd exploded when Duff hopped onstage to join Slash for a couple of Guns 'N Roses classics:
Last weekend was New York’s CBGB Festival, and judging from the reports, saying that it rocked would be an understatement. The festival was put together to help commemorate the history of the legendary club, one known for its underground culture and utter grungy rock feel.
By now we all know how things went down at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies last night - Axl was a no show (or was...is...he just veeeeerrrrryyyy late???). He said he wasn't going to be there, and true to his word...he wasn't. That didn't stop the rest of the guys from Guns 'N' Roses (from various versions of G 'N' R) from accepting the honor - with class.
