VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES bassist Duff McKagan's side band, DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED, has issued the following update:

"Rockfest 2009, Kansas City — 52,000 fucking crazy people, are you kidding me? Now that is how it's done! Sometimes these radio festivals are a bit weird. You play early, people are half asleep still (or maybe just not drunk enough yet?) and you get eight minutes to play. Yesterday was the exception to the rule. People in Kansas City are made to rock and came in force to throw it down.

"Corey Taylor (SLIPKNOT, STONE SOUR) came up and nailed 'It's So Easy' [GUNS N' ROSES] with us. Brother can SING! We also saw his band play. Who else can throw the theme song from 'Cheers', NIN and PRINCE in the same set and blow your mind? Corey is the shit! Thanks, brother.

"Today we are in Indianola rocking Lazerfest. It's the last U.S. date before we head over to Europe for a month.

"Again, thanks to everyone for jumping aboard the LOADED train. We've been having a blast! Keep checking back for more upcoming tour dates. See you all soon. Don't forget that our new record, 'Sick', is out and ready for your listening pleasure. Go out and get that shit."
