I remember the very first time I heard the opening bass line for “Sweet Child of Mine” .. it was so refreshing to hear the bass take the reigns and set the tone for what would become an anthem for bass players everywhere. The tone execution and melodic sense was and still is just fantastic. Duff McKagan has quite a story to tell and I found him to be a very kind and humble man who has been able to rise through many obstacles to become a not only a great person but a rock icon bassist. He is very deserving of his success!
His story is one that should inspire anyone to reach for the stars. His humbleness is real and I so enjoyed getting to have this chat with him in LA.
