Velvet Revolver / ex-Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan got down with Down in concert, sitting in with the band Monday for the song 'Bury Me in Smoke' at a show in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Duff McKagan's Loaded were also on the bill, making the all-star onstage collaboration an easy one to pull off.
We're still a long ways away from a full-scale Guns N' Roses reunion, since Slash would still rather stomp on the olive branch than hand it to frontman Axl Rose, but some factions of the Guns camp are making nice. Rose will be sharing stages in the near future with former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan, revealed Rose in his interview with 'That Metal Show' set to air Nov. 11.
Ex-Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan has penned a tell-all autobiography titled ‘It’s So Easy (And Other Lies),’ and the book is due to hit shelves Oct. 4. An 80-page excerpt has been published online and it includes an interesting bit about how Duff Beer on 'The Simpsons' was named after McKagan.
Former Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan may just be one of rock's classic over-achievers. When he's not starring on the reality TV show 'Married to Rock' with his wife Susan, or writing one of his columns for Seattle Weekly or ESPN he can usually be found touring with his band Loaded, where he fills the triple role of lead singer, songwriter and guitarist alongside bandmates Jeff Rouse on bass, guitarist Mike Squires, and Isaac Carpenter on drums.
