More Information

Duff McKagan is a great American songwriter. His extraordinary musical journey has taken him from tiny punk clubs to sold-out world stadium tours. Along the way he’s become a founding member of Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver and has collaborated with legends including Ozzy Osborne and Iggy Pop. He has also produced a versatile catalogue of solo material. McKagan’s millions of fans include none other than Bob Dylan. The man has music in his bones. And there’s one place he’s happiest making it. Where it all comes together. At home.

McKagan wrote his first song in his bedroom at his mom’s house in 1978. Back then he was a 14-year punk on the verge of quitting high school, who “borrowed” cars to make it to gigs and practiced every instrument going, so he could fill any position a band had vacant. His musical apprenticeship was served in The Vains (1979), The Fastbacks (1980) and The Living (1982). Then in 1985, he formed the original line- up of Guns N’ Roses, and so began a career of astonishing creativity, which has also included time with Loaded (1998) and Velvet Revolver (2002-2008).
