Duff McKagan, Scott Ian + Chris Jericho to Appear in ‘Rockstars Say the Funniest Things’
Get lost, Billy Cosby, metal is invading your territory with the three-night event, 'Rockstars Say the Funniest Things.' Billed as 'a spoken word performance series,' 'Rockstars Say the Funniest Things' will feature musical heavyweights Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver), Scott Ian (Anthrax) and Chris Jericho (Fozzy, WWE Wrestler).
Each evening in the London series will shine the spotlight on one musician, who will offer the crowd stories and discussions about everything you'd expect to hear from a rock star. Although Duff McKagan prefers to be called a "rock dude," the famed bassist will present his one-man show, 'It's So Easy: A Punk's Review,' on Oct. 23, where he will be reading excerpts from his book, 'It's So Easy (And Other Lies),' playing acoustic tracks and taking questions from the audience.
Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian will take over for one night only on Nov. 4. Ian is a well-known rock personality, as seen on various VH1 programs.“This is something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time," says Ian. "I’ve been traveling the world in the company of and hanging out with the greatest people on the planet for 31 years and I’ve got to tales to tell.”
Fozzy vocalist and WWE wrestler Chris Jericho will have his one-night stand on Nov. 25, where he will regale his crowd with uncensored stories from both the music and wrestling world. “I’m really stoked to do my first spoken word performance in my second home of England…home of bangers and mash, William and Kate and One Direction. Rest assured I will be discussing none of these topics, however sex, drugs and rock n roll will be addressed!! See you soon…”
