GUNS N’ ROSES: Duff Filling in for Tommy
Duff McKagan will be playing a few shows with his old friend Axl Rose.
Guns n’ Roses have a seven-date South American tour that starts tonight (Tuesday) in Brazil — but the last week of the trek conflicts with the Coachella sets bassist Tommy Stinson has lined up with his original band, The Replacements. So when McKagan tweeted a picture of GNR set lists with the caption, “Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia, Brazil! See y’all in the next few weeks, Si? GNR,” fans had the answer about who would be playing bass.
McKagan played with the current lineup of GNR back in 2010 and 2011, when his band Loaded opened up for them.
