DUFF MCKAGAN: How AXL ROSE And SLASH Inspire Me To Become Better Musician

In a brand new interview with Mistress Carrie of the Worcester/Boston, Massachusetts radio station WAAF, Duff McKagan spoke about how his GUNS N' ROSES bandmates Axl Rose and Slash inspire him to be a better musician.

"Watching Axl prepare for a show — an hour and a half [of] vocal warmups," Duff said (hear audio below). "And then when he goes onstage and just kind of the thing that comes over him… That guy couldn't phone in a gig… He couldn't do it. He would die first, I think; you would have to shoot him in the head. And then the hour-and-a-half warmdowns. And watching Slash play guitar all day long, and then lose himself when we play the shows. Sometimes he's just gone. When he's [doing] his solo, I have to sometimes actually tap him on the foot, like, 'Dude, come back into the song.' 'Oh, what? Okay.' So that makes me work."

He continued: "I don't know if I'm as talented as those guys, so I feel like I always have to work twice as hard, and I love that. So I go in my basement. And my wife knows — I go to the basement. I'm there for six hours or seven hours. It's just where I go to do my thing. Sometimes she'll come down and I'll play for her, and then she'll go back, but she knows that's the time when I've gotta put in my work, my hours. And I love putting in my hours."

Good to finally have some more information on Axl's pre- and post-show vocal exercises. Not that it surprised me, but so many fans claim he doesn't warm-up or care.
