Former GUNS N' ROSES and current VELVET REVOLVER bassist Duff McKagan has penned the latest installment of his column, which appears on Reverb at SeattleWeekly.com. An excerpt follows below."I have never been real big on New Year's resolutions — maybe because in my 'sober life' I have strived for everything in moderation (food, buying too much material crap, or whatever). It goes without saying that I no longer have booze and drugs to swear off. But there are one or two things I am finally going to rectify after the first of the year . . . the things that perhaps plague us all: junk e-mail and sales calls. "I don't have the most public of phone numbers, but I have tried to hang onto the same cell number for quite some time now. I suppose I must have used it at some point when I bought something, because these days — and every business day — I get sales calls at 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. You know the ones . . . a robotic voice comes on and says 'This call is intended for MICHAEL MCKAGAN. If this is not MICHAEL MCKAGAN, please disregard.' I emphasize the 'Michael McKagan' part because that is the part of the sentence where the robotic voice inexplicably gets somehow more robotic."
