Duff McKagan palaa Guns N’ Rosesiin viiden keikan ajaksi

Duff McKagan 2014Guns N’ Rosesin entinen basisti Duff McKagan on varmistanut liikkeellä olleet huhut, jonka mukaan hän korvaa yhtyeen nykyistä basistia Tommy Stinsonia viiden keikan verran yhtyeen tulevalla kiertueella Etelä-Amerikassa. Lue lisää nähdäksesi sekä Duffin, että Tommyn kommentit asiaan liittyen.

Tommy kommentoi puuttumista tulevalta kiertueelta:

”I had those REPLACEMENTS shows come up the same time the (South American) tour came up, and it got to be a scheduling issue right out of the gate,” Stinson tells Billboard.com. ”I didn’t want to fuck anyone up in GUNS by saying, ’Hey, I can’t do this tour’ or anything like that. Luckily someone was able to reach out to Duff and he was amenable to the idea and was into doing it. It’s Duff being the kind of good sport he is, trying to help Axl [Rose] out. So I’m like, ’Thanks, dude, for covering my ass on this one.’ I think people are gonna be really stoked about it. It’s gonna be fun for everyone.”

Duff McKagan on itse kommentoinut tulevaa Billboard.com:lle seuraavasti:

”It’s pretty great to play these songs again, and looking forward to playing some gigs with my pal again. South America is always a radical place for rock n roll…and I’m honored to be doing this thing, in that place.”

Tommy Stinson on kommentoinut Duffin tulevia keikkoja yhtyeen mukana seuraavasti:

”[Duff is] a fucking great bass player. It’s gonna be a breeze. The only bummer is I don’t get to see one of the shows he plays, especially after playing his fucking parts for 17 years. It would be interesting to see how he plays them. There’s a couple things I could use some pointers on.”

Duff tulee soittamaan Gunnareiden kanssa seuraavat keikat:
Buenos Aires, Argentina 6.4.2014
Asuncion, Paraguay 9.4.2014
La Paz, Bolivia 12.4.2014
Brazil, Recife 15.4.2014
Brazil, Fortaleza 15.4.2014.
