Duff McKagan Kicked Out of Guns N' Roses Bootleg Shop

Original Guns N' Roses bass player Duff McKagan shared a story in his latest Seattle Weekly's Reverb blob about how he got kicked out of a Guns N' Roses Bootleg Shop in Tokyo. Here is an excerpt:

"Harajuku is all connected by alleyway streets lined with themed shops in amazing contrast to each other: punk-rock clothes next to pastel-only skirt shops next to early-'80s NY beat-boy clothing next to a Star Wars store. It becomes obvious that many of the printed T-shirts with band names or Star Wars characters are bootlegs (last time I checked, Skywalker's first name is "Luke," not "Look").

"It was in one of these alleyways that I stumbled upon a rock-and-roll (bootleg) T-shirt store. What caught my eye was a Metallica/GN'R split-band T-shirt in the front window. Of course, this shirt never existed in real life back in the day, but it got me to further peruse the inside of the store.

"I was met with a dazzling array of O.G. Guns N' Roses shirts with some "artwork" close to the original and other "artwork" comically missing. Just as I was looking at a skull-guys-on-the-cross GN'R shirt (where we all looked more like chimps than dastardly rock-and-roll hellions), I was asked to leave... for eating inside of the store."
