, “We recorded that song, that song is not the same song we recorded. When we recorded Shadow Of Your Love, we recorded it when we did the EP Live Like A Suicide. If you’re listening to it, that’s not me playing drums on it. The guitar has obviously been put in, because it sounds newer.
The vocals, the bass, the rhythm guitar, that’s from 1985, but the drums, that’s not me playing. I know how I play, and that’s not the same guitar solo. You can hear it, it sounds brand new. Half the song sounds really old, and the drums and lead guitar sound new. They have better equipment nowadays, and we did that demo for 300 dollars. It sounds different.”
“This was 1985, in 1985 we did the Live Like A Suicide. I really don’t think that’s me playing, because if you listen to Live Like A Suicide, the drums sound completely different to Shadow Of Your Love. The guitar sounds completely different, it sounds like it’s been added in there, with better technology than we were using on that 300 dollar demo tape.”
Entertainment Weekly Mentions Duff McKagan in Recent Article!
Entertainment Weekly posted an article about how 10 characters from the hit animated series ‘The Simpsons’ got their name. One character, which isn’t so much a person but a brand is somewhat related to Duff McKagan is Duff Beer. Entertainment Weekly said the following:
“And one product, which is a character in itself:
DUFF BEER: We needed a name for Homer’s favorite beer, and Jay Kogen came up with Duff. No, it was not named after Duff McKagan, bassist for Guns N’ Roses; we’d never heard of this guy. Have you? McKagan loves to claim we called him and asked to use his name: ‘I knew nothing about branding yourself then or the royalties off it. I just thought cool, they wanna use my name and boom, The Simpsons was born. Yeah, if I had a nickel for every time … but it’s fine.’ It’s a cute fake story that McKagan tells in his aptly named memoir It’s So Easy: And Other Lies.” —MR
