Duff McKagan Talks Guns N' Roses Rock Hall Induction
But Thursday, in his column forSeattle Weekly, Duff opened up a little to share his thoughts on the honor. "Music to me has never been a competitive sport," writes McKagan. "We do what we do, and if you connect with an audience and write the songs that feel good to you in the process, that is reward enough. Getting a Grammy or an American Music Award seems a little bit weird in this whole context. I mean, are you BETTER than all those other bands? No. You are just doing YOUR thing, and they theirs. It's not a competition."
"But it became very apparent to me that fans of GN'R felt very motivated for our band to 'get into the Hall.' All of those fans ARE very important to me, and thus getting this RRHOF nod was a victory for them. And so I am deeply honored and feel very good about this whole deal. Thank you all." more on this story
