Duff McKagan Plays ‘Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?’
For this edition of Wikipedia: Fact or Fiction?, we brought back one of our favorite guests for an unprecedented second round of our signature game. Walking Papers bassist and former Guns N' Roses / Velvet Revolver member Duff McKagan is back once again to set the record straight.
You may have seen one of our first ever Wikipedia episodes, which featured Duff McKagan and fellow Walking Papers member Jeff Angell. This time around, we focus directly on Duff and uncover some interesting facts about the veteran bassist.
After getting through some of the basics, including an odd job Duff's mother kept during the future rock star's childhood, we get into familiar territory while discussing Guns N' Roses. KISS legend Paul Stanley almost ended up producing Guns N' Roses' groundbreaking debut, Appetite for Destruction. Why didn't it come to be? You'll find out in this clip. You'll also get the story of "It's So Easy," which Duff began writing before GN'R even formed.
We asked about a potential bandmate Duff was going to jam with after his departure from Guns N' Roses. Unfortunately, it never came to fruition because the man was sent to prison. For what, you ask? Duff reveals exclusively in this video that his buddy was pinched for robbing banks. You've got to check out the story yourself to believe it.
