An animated scene from the movie

Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan has premiered a trailer for documentary movie It’s So Easy And Other LIes, featuring guest appearances by bandmate Slash, Nikki Sixx and Pearl Jam’s Mike McCready.

The film is based around scenes shot during a solo show in 2013, along with animated sequences and exclusive interviews.

In one section, Slash recalls how Guns N’ Roses recruited the bassist, saying: “I put an ad in the Recycler, and in walked this six-foot-plus guy in a red and black trenchcoat.”

McKagan says: “I walked in, looked at the first booth on the left and saw all this hair.”

It’s So Easy And Other Lies – named after his 2011 autobiography – will be screened in various locations starting on May 26, with a future DVD release expected.

McKagan and Guns N’ Roses continue their reunion activities in Mexico tonight (April 20), while singer Axl Rose is gearing up to replace Brian Johnson for the remaining dates of AC/DC’s world tour.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
