Duff McKagan trusts fromer Guns N’ Roses colleague Izzy Stradlin so completely that he wants to keep working with him for ever.
The pair have collaborated on a number of studio projects since leaving GnR decades ago, most recently when the guitarist worked on the bassist’s How To Be A Man EP, which ties in with his latest book.
McKagan tells Consequence Of Sound: “I’ve played on a bunch of Izzy’s records over the last 15 years and it was really nice to be in the studio with him for a couple of days.
“I really trust whatever he does. If he says, ‘I’ve got a part,’ I know he’s got a part. It’s not like, ‘Let me hear it.’ It’s like, ‘He’s got the part. Good – that’s taken care of.’”
Discussing the chance of working together in the future, he says: “I’d like to do more music with him. For the rest of my life.”
McKagan last month shot down the latest round of GnR reunion rumours, after a band biographer claimed he could persuade Axl Rose and Slash to talk out their differences. The bassist said: “That came out of left field for me. Little weird.”
