As previously reported, McKagan will take part in "Rock Stars Say The Funniest Things", a new series of spoken-word sets taking place at Garage in London, England.

Duff will take to the stage on Tuesday, October 25 for "It's So Easy: A Punk's Review", featuring anecdotes and passages from "It's So Easy (And Other Lies)". As well as sharing memories from his musical journey, he will be playing some acoustic tracks and letting the audience delve deeper into this life with a question-and-answer session.

"It's So Easy (And Other Lies)" is a raw, utterly candid autobiography that chronicles the unlikely story of the formation and rise of GUNS N' ROSES to the pinnacle of fame, fortune, and excess. With great candor, charm, and introspection, Duff details his twelve years as the bass player for GN'R as well as his nearly fatal struggle with alcoholism and drug addiction, his unusual path to sobriety, and his success as a savvy business investor and loving husband and father.

"It's So Easy (And Other Lies)" landed at position No. 17 on the New York Times "Hardcover Nonfiction" best-sellers list. The book arrived on October 4, 2011 via Touchstone Books (formerly Touchstone Fireside), a division of Simon & Schuster.

The first 20 pages of "It's So Easy (And Other Lies)" can be read at this location.

Duff's VELVET REVOLVER/GUNS N' ROSES bandmate Slash has published his own book, as has ex-GUNS drummer Steven Adler, who released his life story, "My Appetite For Destruction: Sex And Drugs And Guns N' Roses", in July 2010.
