Duff McKagan Releases Memoir, Announces Book Signing Tour

Duff McKagan: It’s So Easy: And Other LiesDuff McKagan has chronicled his life and incredible career in his new memoir, It’s So Easy: And Other Lies, available now.

The ex-Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver bassist, who recently launched a wealth management firm, tells of his big break, struggles with alcohol and drug addiction, and return to sobriety into the present.

“This is just my story,” the bassist told Billboard. “It’s really my demise into addiction and stuff, and then my way out and my journey into things. My Guns N’ Roses story is my Guns N’ Roses story. My Velvet Revolver story is my Velvet Revolver story. It’s my rock story, from my distinct viewpoint.”

McKagan is also launching a book-signing tour in support of the release:
