Duff Sad Guns N' Roses Didn't Manage To Stay Together

(hennemusic) Original Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan writes about reliving his recent induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame in his latest column for Seattle Weekly.

Titled "A Hall of Appreciation, a Touch of Regret," Duff reflects on the April 14 evening after watching the TV broadcast of the event. "Watching that HBO Special made me sad -- for the very first time, perhaps -- that the original GNR didn't somehow stay together," writes McKagan. "It would have been a miracle if we did. If I'd known then what I know now, I would have done my part to try and rid that band of the caustic resentments and outside inputs that finally wore us down to a nub of what we once were, and what we could have come back from. Alas, it just wasn't in the cards."

"In the aftermath of all of the drama leading up to the event, and a few people from our camp stating publicly that they weren't coming at all, I stuck with the mindset that I was there to honor our fanbase who had been there for us for more than 25 years," Duff writes. "It was a very poignant night. And after watching the broadcast -- and seeing my old friends perform for our diehard fans -- it's starting to sink in just how heavy the event was for me on a personal level." more on this story
