Duff Mckagan - Duff Mckagan To Reveal All About Addiction Battle

Duff McKagan's autobiography offers a "cross section" view of his life.

The former Guns 'N Roses bassist - who now performs with rock bands Velvet Revolver and Loaded - admitted while he isn't even sure whether the tome 'It's So Easy and Other Lies' is any good, it will document his battles with drink and drug addictions.

He told radio station WDHA-FM 105.5 FM: "You get a cross section of my life. I almost lost a battle to addiction and I kind of had to relive it, but in a conversation where you understand what's going on in my life.

"I could tell you how much I drank or how many drugs I took in a day but a normal person would just not understand that. I don't even know if the book was even any good. It sounds lame but it was just so many damn words and endless hours of writing."

Despite documenting his musical career in the book, Duff recently revealed he still has "a hundred" things he wants to accomplish.

He explained: "You know there's a hundred things I could think of I have left to do, but it's been great so far. I've never really sat there and thought about it; about what I've done so far, and how does it feel. I probably should do that one day, but it's not happening yet. Probably a good sign."
