Duff McKagan’s Brother Talks Failed Intervention on His Brother
According to Alternative Nation
Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan’s brother Matthew McKagan was recently interviewed on the Appetite For Distortion podcast. Out of 8 McKagan children, Matthew is #7 and Duff #8, only separated by 2 1/2 years. What was it like growing up together? Did he foresee his brother’s success? How did he handle Duff’s path to sobriety? What’s the story behind him playing on “Move to the City” and “Live and Let Die”? Matthew discussed kickboxing helping Duff get clean and sober, and how an intervention in Seattle once fell apart. Alternative Nation transcribed McKagan’s comments.
“Our family tried to do an intervention up in Seattle, I forgot what year it was, but I had a feeling it was not going to be successful, so I flew up there, and the whole family met at my Mom’s house, and they had this interventionist come. Then Duff came, and we were all there waiting for him, and he took one look at us, and this lady came out and said, ‘Hey, your family is here because they care about you, and they think there is some stuff going on.’ He went, ‘Oh, no way.’ He turned and left, and ran out, and I ran after him, and went to a bar, then we flew back to LA. It was too much, too soon. I had a feeling that was not going to work. He finally figured it out, but he had to do it on his own.”
