Last year, former Guns N' Roses and current Velvet Revolver / Loaded bassist Duff McKagan revealed in his autobiography, 'It's So Easy: And Other Lies,' that the iconic 'Simpsons' animated beverage Duff Beer was named after him. McKagan happily agreed for 'The Simpsons' to use his name, but now the bassist has admitted that he regrets not cashing in on the opportunity.
It's great to jam out with your buddies, but you really find out a lot about a person when you spend every waking hour with them on the road and even the best of friends can start irritating each other. Luckily, Duff McKagan, who knows a thing or two about performing with some rather unique personalities, has offered a few tips for survival on the road in his latest Seattle Weekly column.
Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose is certainly one of the most beloved, but also detested musicians in rock history. It's almost impossible to run into anyone who doesn't have an opinion on Rose as a human being, but the GN'R icon recently partook in an interview that went pretty deep into the mind of one of rock's most polarizing figures.
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.
Well done, Duff McKagan, you married a gorgeous lady. Susan Holmes-McKagan is a model (surprise, surprise), swimwear designer and a one-time cast member on the E! network's reality show 'Married to Rock.'
Over the course of his illustrious career, Duff McKagan has been in a lot of bands -- and he touched on pretty much all of them during a recent interview with FasterLouder, looking back on his stints with Guns N' Roses and Neurotic Outsiders while looking ahead to his future with Loaded, as well as weighing in on where Velvet Revolver might be headed.
In the latest edition of Duff McKagan's column for SeattleWeekly.com, the Velvet Revolver / Loaded / ex-Guns N' Roses bassist explored the topic of depression. Having never suffered clinical depression in his life, McKagan found himself in a dark mindset after Sept. 11, 2001, when the monumental terrorist attack on the World Trade Center changed McKagan for the worst.
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.’
When Jeff Angell and Barrett Martin decided to form a new band, they didn't have to look very far for support. As two longtime members of the Seattle music scene, with time served in bands like Mad Season and Screaming Trees, they only needed to reach out to some old friends. Some very famous old friends.
