DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED Subject Of New Feature-Length Film

According to the West Seattle Herald, Seattle filmmaker and documentarian Jamie Burton Chamberlin is working on a feature-length film about Seattle rock legend Duff McKagan (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES) and his band, LOADED. The film is based on the band's upcoming album, which is tentatively due in March 2011 via Eagle Rock Entertainment.

LOADED will perform two songs from the upcoming CD, "We Win" and "Fight On", at the Seattle Seahawks Veterans Day half time show on November 7.

"It's going to be huge," said Chamberlin. "'We Win' is a pulsating anthem reminiscent of 'We Will Rock You', and 'Fight On' is an amazing song about overcoming adversity. These two songs seem perfectly matched for the other veteran-related activities planned.

"My main focus for half time is to shoot how the band gets there and where they head after. It's more about designing a fictitious story line which will be a part of the larger project, and will be a contemporary version of, say, 'Hard Days Night' meets (LED ZEPPELIN's) 'The Song Remains the Same', with aspects of documentary, music video, and live performance, all interconnected by an underlying motivation. The album will serve as the soundtrack.

"Everything will be shot in Seattle and the Northwest," he added. "We hope to use locations in West Seattle and other familiar settings to create these vignettes that develop organically within them."
