Duff McKagan: Walking Legend

Original Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan will be making a return to the fold for some live shows in South America later this month.

Current GN’R four-stringer Tommy Stinson has gone and double-booked himself thanks to his original band The Replacements (CONVENIENT NAME KLAXON!!!) reuniting for Coachella. Luckily for Tommy, a familiar face was happy to step in at short notice.

“I had those Replacement shows come up the same time the [Guns N’ Roses] tour came up, and it got to be a scheduling issue right out of the gate,” Tommy tells Billboard. “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. So I’m like, ‘Thanks dude, for covering my ass on this one.’”

Fans can see an almost-actually-somewhere-near-being-a-remotely-relevant-Guns-N-Roses-lineup at: April 6 in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Asuncion, Paraguay on April 9, La Paz, Bolivia on April 12, Recife, Brazil on April 15 and Fortaleza, Brazil on April 17.
