Duff McKagan's Life Lessons

(hennemusic) Duff McKagan has reviewed the first draft of his upcoming autobiography, and shares his thoughts on some life lessons learned with readers of his Seattle Weekly column.

It is common for all human beings to experience a traumatizing childhood event. I think when we are kids we have these idealized models of what life should be like and what grown-ups should adhere to. In my case, my own father didn't live up to my idealized "father-figure" model, and I ended up resenting him for the rest of his life.

To sort of throw my dad under the bus now that he isn't here to defend himself is not my intent. There were many things he did in my life that were amazing and righteous. We just didn't have a real knack for communicating, especially when I witnessed first-hand my parents' marriage falling apart. When they divorced, I placed the blame squarely on my dad's shoulders and never looked back. After I got sober, my wife Susan sort of forced me into having a relationship with my dad again. more on this story
