Duff McKagan’s Daughters Think Axl Rose Is “Woke”
According to a new interview Duff McKagan gave to the New Statesman, he revealed that both of his daughters think that Guns N’ Roses frontman Axl Rose is “woke.” According to the article:
story continued below…
“I didn’t know how much we had made or lost,” he said. “As a 30-year-old millionaire, how do I admit to somebody that I don’t know what the heck I’m doing?”
He later enrolled at the Albers Jesuit business school at Seattle University, attending compulsory theology modules alongside 18-year-olds, one of whom brought him an Appetite for Destruction CD to sign. He started the wealth management firm Meridian Rock, and now has two daughters in young adulthood. He is “caught up in their lives”.
Duff’s girls think Axl Rose is woke. “It’s a lack of federal funding that’s at the root of the purported forest mismanagement,” tweeted Axl, when wild fires ripped through California last year and Trump blamed forest staff. But Duff is woke too. He favours the Democrat candidate Pete Buttigieg, for 2020. And his new album, Tenderness, has a #MeToo-ish song about, as he puts it, “those boys at school who you knew were a bit rapey” – though his method of dealing with them would be traditional: “My left fist is six months in hospital; my right fist is sudden death.”
In 2015, he wrote a book called How to Be a Man. His new album started as another book, inspired by Sarah Kendzior’s political essays in The View from Flyover Country. But Duff made a record in the end – partly because he found he was writing his book in rhyme.
Personally I hate the term “woke” and think it’s a way for hipster’s to seem enlightened rather than having an actual discussion about pressing issues. That’s my two cents. And of course Duff’s new album Tenderness comes out May 31, 2019.
