DUFF MCKAGAN Praises His Replacement In GUNS N' ROSES

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.

"About a week and a half ago, I had the pleasure of hanging out with Tommy Stinson. For those of you who don't know, he is the guy who replaced me in GUNS N' ROSES. But also for those of you who don't know, Tommy is known to a lot of us music fans for his work in his first band, THE REPLACEMENTS.

"Our meeting last week was by no means the first time we have hung out. No, back in 1983, my band 10 MINUTE WARNING opened for THE REPLACEMENTS right here in Seattle, at the long-defunct punk club Metropolis.

"Tommy is a great fucking guy, and I always come away glad when our paths have crossed over the years."
