DUFF MCKAGAN TO TELL HIS GUNS N' ROSES STORY

Duff McKagan
Ex-GN'R bassist Duff McKagan is prepping his own biography and told Billboard: "Mine's not really a Guns N' Roses book, where I think Slash's really was… and I haven't read [Steven Adler's]. I'm not saying one's better than the other. This is just my story. It's really my demise into addiction and stuff, and then my way out and my journey into things. My Guns N' Roses story is my Guns N' Roses story. My Velvet Revolver story is my Velvet Revolver story. It's my rock story, from my distinct viewpoint."

Duff added, "It was pretty gut-wrenching to write some of this stuff, just because I hadn't faced any of it until I had to write. I didn't expletive around, but I didn't throw anybody under the bus, either. There's some things you just don't break confidences on, even if you're warring with someone."

McKagan is currently working his band Loaded, an outfit he has been in longer than any other band. His book is due to be published in October.
