Former Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan is in talks with book publishers about releasing a personal memoir, recounting his rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle throughout the years. A twitter post from his wife, Susan Holmes, read “Duff’s back from NYC – he met and was wooed [by] 13 of the best book publishers – this is [for] the release of his book in the US markets only – UK next.”
Almost a year ago, Duff was interviewed by TimesRecordNews, and explained his book would be about his experiences.
“I just started writing,” he said. “We’ll see how it goes, maybe up to 10,000 words and then I’ll actually sit down and read it and see if it’s going in the right direction. I like writing, and I don’t take myself too seriously, so it should be interesting.”
McKagan already has writing experience, as he pens a music column for SeattleWeekly.com and a financial review for Playboy.com, entitled “Duffonomics.” Yes, Duff McKagan has a degree in Finance.
