McKagan's Drug-Fuelled Gn'r Memory Loss

DUFF McKAGAN relies on his ex-GUNS N' ROSES bandmates for wild anecdotes relating to the PARADISE CITY group's heyday - because he was too obliterated on drugs and alcohol.

The bassist - who formed VELVET REVOLVER with former GN'R stars SLASH and MATT SORUM - suffered a major health scare in the mid-1990s when his pancreas exploded, following years of hedonistic excess.

However, his decade-long wild spell also coincided with the years Guns N' Roses were held up as the greatest rock band in the world.

He says, "Anything from 1989 to 1995 I've forgotten. I know some good stories, but only because Matt reminds me of them."
