Duff Mckagan’s Loaded announce a string of UK dates including main support for Alice Cooper and co-headline shows with Ugly Kid Joe in the UK in October 2012.
Also in October, for one night only, Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver) will introduce Europe to the live performance based on his best-selling memoir “It"s So Easy: And Other Lies” (Orion). Duff has already taken this live performance “It’s So Easy: A Punk’s Review” to the USA – but for the first time in Europe, on October 23rd at the Garage in London the audience will see and hear him read excerpts from his explosive autobiography, perform acoustically and end the night with a Q&A: An entertaining and brutally honest insight into the life and adventures of one of rock music’s true performers, this is a show not to be missed.
Duff McKagan"s Loaded last album, “The Taking”, can be found on Eagle Rock’s Armoury Records. This is the band’s third album and the first to feature new drummer Isaac Carpenter. The rest of the line-up is, of course, Duff McKagan on vocals and rhythm guitar, Mike Squires on lead guitar and BVs and Jeff Rouse on Bass and BVs. The album features 11 new songs, produced by the legendary Terry Date [Slipknot, Soundgarden, Pantera etc]. The result is Loaded’s most accomplished and hard-hitting album to date of which Duff McKagan says, “This is the album I’ve been trying to make for several years. I’m proud of the songs, the music and the spirit of this record.”
