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.

QOTSA are back!
It’s been 5 long years since I saw Queens of the Stone Age live at VFest in Melbourne & man they blew my mind.
Flashbacks of free booze & cheeky smokes backstage with The Smashing Pumpkins‘ truck-driver, then stumbling home half-cut from Flemington Racecourse with an earful of bees.
Lead by frontman Josh Homme, live versions of QOTSA brand spanking new single ‘My God Is The Sun’ have been bouncing around the internet recently after the band performed live at Lollapalooza Brazil and this smokin’ studio version does not disappoint.
