Annotation

The explosive autobiography of the Guns N' Roses and Revolver bass guitarist. He lived the full rock n' roll lifestyle with all its excesses, and somehow lived to tell the tale.

Publisher Description

A founding member of Guns N Roses and Velvet Revolver shares the story of his rise to the pinnacle of fame and fortune, his struggles with alcoholism and drug addiction, his personal crash and burn, and his phoenix-like transformation via a unique path to sobriety.

In 1984, at the age of twenty, Duff McKagan left his native Seattle - partly to pursue music but mainly to get away from a host of heroin overdoses then decimating his closest group of friends in the local punk scene. In L.A. only a few weeks and still living in his car, he answered a want ad for a bass player placed by someone who identified himself only as 'Slash.' Soon after, the most dangerous band in the world was born. Guns N Roses went on to sell more than 100 million albums worldwide.

In IT'S SO EASY, Duff recounts GN R s unlikely trajectory to a string of multiplatinum albums, sold-out stadium concerts, and global acclaim. But that kind of glory can take its toll, and it did - ultimately - on Duff, as well as on the band itself. As GN R began to splinter, Duff felt that he himself was done, too. But his near death as a direct result of alcoholism proved to be his watershed, the turning point that led to his unique path to sobriety and the unexpected choices he has made for himself since.

In a voice that is as honest as it is indelibly his own, Duff - one of rock s smartest and most articulate personalities - takes readers on his harrowing journey through the dark heart of one of the most notorious bands in rock-and-roll history and out the other side.

Author Biography

Duff McKagan was the bass guitarist in the most successful rock band of all time, Guns N'Roses, and also played in Velvet Revolver with Slash (also of Guns N'Roses fame). He lives in Seattle with his wife and two daughters, hosts rock specials on Seattle's main rock station KISW and also writes columns for various publications, including Playboy.

Review

Today McKagan is very much a family man and this book, written without the aid of a journalist, doesn't shirk from examining his misbehaviours. BIG ISSUE IN THE NORTH
