Transcript:

Hey guys. This is Duff McKagan. First of all, I'm really honored. I wanna say thank you. Being a distinguished Seattle Central alumni is kind of unimaginable to me at this moment. I'm in South Africa. I'm extremely jet lagged. But Seattle Central for me really was a game changer for me in my life. I went back to school, probably like a lot of you. I was 30 myself when I went back to school and got into Seattle Central. Learned how to study again. Learned how to go to school and developed discipline. The things I learned at Seattle Central have carried through into my professional life, taught me a lot into my second career when Velvet Revolver started back up when I was about 37. Got into the Business School, Seattle U, because of Seattle Center. Matriculated through Malvern [?] School of Business across the street from you guys there, and really helped me in my professional life until now, I'm 49. I know I look probably 48. But really, I'm really quite honored. And you guys who are who are there right now tonight graduating: Congratulations. I'm really bummed, really sick I couldn't be there, but I gotta tour and this is what I do. And again, thank you so much and maybe I'll come to school and drop in on a class. Alright, thank you. See you guys, bye.

Excerpts from Blabbermouth:
------------------------------------

Duff McKagan was named the 2013 Distinguished Alumni Of The Year at Seattle Central Community College during commencement. You can now watch his acceptance speech below.

McKagan didn't follow a traditional path when deciding to attend college at Seattle Central. He started playing in rock bands while a teenager and landed in the international spotlight as part of the hard rock band Guns N' Roses in the late 1980s and early '90s.

Duff reflected,: "I made money in my 20s, became sober in my 30s, looked around and didn't know who I could trust for money advice. I decided to learn (about money) for myself so I wasn’t broke in my 40s. Going to college was a main driver for me."

Seattle Central was there for him when he was ready to start college.

"Attending Seattle Central was an awesome experience," Duff said. "It taught me a lot about discipline in a great way. Having a college education has also helped my reputation. Ever since, people take me more seriously in my industry, because most people in the music industry do not go to college."
