Velvet Revolver Bassist: Weiland's 'Other Demon' Got In The Way Of Us Doing Good Business

Velvet Revolver/ex-Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan was interviewed yesterday (Monday, November 10) by "The BJ Shea Morning Experience" on Seattle's KISW 99.9 FM radio station. An excerpt from the chat follows below.

Duff: We had gotten rid of Scott, last, it was actually on April Fools Day of this year….

BJ: Was there any irony in that, by the way, Duff?

Duff: It was kind of cool… it was kind of cool. It was the 'step into my office, you’re fired' kind of thing. I have to say. We went through a lot…he put us through a lot of crap that last tour. So it was kind of that feeling. We were getting through the gig, we were in Amsterdam…. we were getting through our last few songs. I started to get, I can't lie…. a little giddy. 'This going to be great… this is going to be great.' So we got done, and yeah… Slash and I did the 'step into my office' thing.

Steve Migliore: So you guys were on stage and the rest of the band knew?

Duff: Oh, we knew four months prior we were going to do it. We just wanted to finish the tour.

Steve Migliore: Wow.

Duff: It was kind of cool. I mean, it wasn't cool that we had to do it at all. We put so much work into that band…but we had been through so much… anguish is too dramatic of a word… but B.S. on that tour. And Scott is a great guy… but he's just got this other demon that gets in the way of him being a great guy. And it got in the way of us doing good business. We were coming on late and he missed a couple of shows. We had to cancel two tours. . . He's just got so many things…. 'cause I have the same disease he has. In saying all this, I can make fun of some things, like saying we went through some B.S. and it felt good to have him step into the office. But all funning aside, he has the same disease that I have and a lot of us have and that is alcoholism and drug addiction. He is in a different stage of addiction than I am. I don't use or drink, and I've done things to help me through life, and I have a great life. There are some that are just less fortunate.
