Hard to believe Duff McKagan’s been the bass player for Guns N Roses, Velvet Revolver and Jane’s Addiction! And he’s still writing new music & jetting the globe… Love it!
Duff’s Seattle sound, his latest project Walking Papers, features himself, Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin, Missionary Position vocalist Jeff Angell and keys player Benjamin Anderson.
Currently in the UK & Ireland on tour and for Download Festival, McKagan recently caught up with Fake Mustache Studios’ podcast mogul & comedian Jay Mohr on one of my favourite podcasts, Mohr Stories. With a mixture in-depth, deep discussion, hilarious banter and an audience over 250,000 downloads a month, Jay Mohr’s fascinating, frank tête-à-têtes with the stars includes the likes of Josh Homme, Charlie Sheen, Barry Katz, David Lee Roth & more. In this Mohr Stories episode, Duff recounts stories from his days with the GnFnRs, randomly bumping into Axl Rose into a London hotel years later and the beginnings of his new band.
Walking Papers self-titled debut album is due out on August 6th.
