Duff McKagan on My Planet Rocks; Audio Available
Duff McKagan was interviewed on the December 14, 2008 edition of the My Planet Rocks show on the UK classic rock radio station Planet Rock. You can listen to the program in three parts below.
Duff McKagan's Loaded performed at KISW's annual Holiday Hangover Ball on December 12 at Showbox SoDo in Seattle, Washington. Original headliners Saliva who were scheduled to play, were forced to cancel due to an unexpected health scare of lead singer Josey Scott, and were replaced by members of QueensrŸche.
Loaded's new five-song EP, Wasted Heart, was released on September 22 via Century Media Records. A new full-length album will follow in early 2009. The CD was produced by Martin Feveyear and will include such tracks as "Roll Away", "Forgive Me", "Sick", "No More", "Southern Girl", "No Shame" and "Translucent".
"These are purely my songs," McKagan told Billboard.com. "It's probably more derivative of my earlier years of punk rock. It's a good rock 'n' roll band. It's fun, is what it is. There's no real business and no real drama. I'm really into no drama right now."
In addition to McKagan, Loaded features drummer Geoff Reading (Green Apple Quick Step), bassist Jeff Rouse and guitarist Mike Squires from Alien Crime Syndicate).
Loaded was formed in 1999 and has morphed several times, releasing two albums: 1999's Live Episode and 2001's Dark Days.
