sweetness! ok, about the only thing I have to ask Duff is, how the hell he comes up with his crazy fills?!?!?!?! I work my fingers to the damn bone, and sure, some bassists would say "ha, that's easy", but really, it isnt that easy to play Duff's fills. maybe it's just because I am rather new to the bass, but I have handled many GNR & VR songs just fine. Maybe it's because he also plays guitar? I just don't know. But MAN, those fills are wicked, and kick my ass!

Also, what pedals do you use? I am pretty sure that there is a chorus in there, but what else???

Thanks man, love ya!  :headbanger:

Since I'm a huge fan of Mark Lanegan, I've always wondered what happened to the stuff you did with him.

Seems like only a few tracks have been released, but there were news reports back in 1998-1999 about a bunch of songs being written.

"Fix" and "Untitled Lullaby" have been released. Is there more material that remains unreleased?  :?



Do you think the record company will release "Beautiful Disease" now that they could market it as "featuring members of #1 rock band Velvet Revolver"?

A couple quick ones:

I really enjoyed Neurotic Outsiders, especially your (Duff) songs as well as John Taylor's. Are you still friends with John and Steve and is there the slightest chance you guys will ever do a one off show again ? I have a promo of your unreleased album Beautiful Disease, this is a damn good record, one of my favorites along with Loaded Dark Days, Do you think Beautiful Disease will ever get released ? Anyways Duff you rock , It is great to see VR doing so well, real fucking rock & roll, Hope to catch you guys on tour again real soon. Thanks

Good idea. I have a question I've been wanting to ask Duff for ages.

Why bass and not guitar? Who are your musical influences (other bass players).

Duff if you happen to read this....please please come to Vancouver, we have a great venue called the Commodore Ballroom and we're a riot free city (just kidding on that one) :P

Just an FYI (and I hope you already know this), but Duff DOES play guitar, and drums. He took up bass when he moved to Cali cause there was a huge need for them at that time. Well, there is a huge need for them now too!  :D

Title: Will VR come back to Scandinavia soon?
Post by: westcoast_junkie on October 26, 2004, 02:23:41 AM
First of all will I say that Velvet Revolver is the best liveband I've ever seen. I didn't get tickets to the show in Oslo, so I headed for Stockholm, and Annexet to se VR.
Well, all I can say is that neither Iron Maiden or Marilyn Manson (that's the only other big artists I have ever seen) couldt reach VR to the knee. What an amazing live act the Velvet Revolver guys did.
So I just wonder if Velvet Revolver will come back to Scandinavia soon? And espessially Norway. That would be great...

Title: Duff, how do you feel about Axl?
Post by: VelveT FaN on October 26, 2004, 03:51:28 PM
Duff I know you may be busy but I have spent awhile pondering how Axl thinks about VR, but since I cant talk to Axl via the forum, I will ask you how you feel about Axl and the new Guns n Roses? I was wondering if you guys are on speaking terms, do you talk to him regulary if so? I was also wondering how you feel about his effort to bring back old rock with the new GnR.

Take your time, thanks!

Post by: ziptang on October 26, 2004, 06:55:55 PM
the only question i can think of is,

what song that you have composed/written/recorded would you like to tackle again. maybe do over, re-dub, change a chord or lyric.

just a "reflection in hindsight" question.

thanks :)

First of all, im a big Velvet Revolver fan.  I got tickets to the show in Alabama and i can't wait for it.  The only thing ive been wondering is how do you decide what cover songs you do because it seems that you switch cover songs frequently. And also, why don't yall do Rocket Queen because it seems like with Scott's powerful voice, yall could pull an awesome version of that song.

Post by: darthaero85 on October 26, 2004, 09:38:52 PM
Here's my one question:

Duff, can you sign the guestbook of our website?  We're a non-profit independent film group of the Chicago Suburbs, and we need some guestbook signatures on our guestbook to make ourselves look more distinguished.  Many people came to our first screening, and although we advertised our website, only a few people out of 75 or so actually took us seriously.  If we got a signature from a celebrity, it would look really great as far as advertising to more people.  We could say "Hey, Duff thinks we're cool!" and stuff like that.  

The website is www.freewebs.com/filmclass and just sign the guestbook by clicking on it in the left-side panel.  Just leave the email part blank.  PLEEEEEEEEEEEZE check us out!  We're cool!  We like you guys so much, we even put the song Spectacle in one of the films.  I just wish we could afford enough bandwith to post the movies online.

YOU ROCK!!! SEE YOU ON 11/21!

No, Duff never did drugs, ever :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

 :shock: Unless you mean, did he help Scott for real? Yes he did, he said that like in a thousand interviews...

If you meant, was Duff ever in that situation where he needed to be saved...well... Haven't you heard his pancreas exploded? Read the story... everywhere really...  :?

Refer to Rik's site for VR interviews if you want details if you want your answer sooner than later :wink:
Title: Questions/Comments for Duff ~
Post by: gaia13fr on October 27, 2004, 10:30:38 AM
Question 1): Duff, I miss your sound. Could you play a little less in the pocket, pretty please with cherry on top? Now that you are so sharp musically, why be so deep in the pocket? And "I don't want to get in the way of Scott's vocals" doesn't cut it, man... Get in they way! At least live...  Dazzle us again!

--I'm selfish that way...

Question 2): Beside turning you into Lanky Papa Smurf, what does the Providence tattoo means?

Question 3): who's this person with you on this photo:

Hey Duff,

Just wanted to know if you liked the DVD of my band 'Red Top Matches' that you took at the London Hammersmith show in September?

Thanks for signing the bass - it's in prime position in my living room and I hope I can get Slash and Dave to sign it so that it has the whole band on there!

See you in back in Hammersmith on Jan 22nd.

You fuckin rock man!

Once again, just in case he doesn't answer quite right away and you're very eager to know... Dude, welcome to discovering VR and Duff in particular. As you will find out in all the VR interviews Duff did all over the world for the past two years, he does kickboxing now. If you want more details on his routine, he gives full details in the magazine GQ of October... It's a fashion magazine for gentlemen... Maybe if you google it you can find it online? :wink:

Post by: ConsequentialAngel on October 29, 2004, 10:44:59 AM
Hi Duff! I hope you are well. Firstly, it’s great to have you taking an interest in the forum and your loyal fans.  It’s also nice to have things come from the horses mouth and not it’s arse (as someone else on here said!).
I’d just like to say that I agree with you totally about the bands of today (regarding the Nickleback thing I read). Unfortunately, there are no bands out there today who put a show on like all the legends any more. Furthermore, I’ve long stopped listening to the radio because all they churn out is crap after runny crap. It’s all the same, meaningless and unexciting. There’s one exception however. This fucking amazing band that goes by the name of ‘Velvet Revolver’.  :wink:  Contraband is the only new release I have purchased since… I can’t even remember! I can’t get enough of this masterpiece. You guys are one truly talented bunch! At that, I’d like to thank you for bringing Rock n’ Roll back to life.
Can’t wait until I see you again on January 22nd!! You guys kicked some serious butt and were totally awesome in September. I’m sure Jimi Page and Brian May were impressed by everyone’s performance! I’m literally counting down the days. 78 to go!
Also, how do you deal with life on the road away from your home, wife and kids for so long?
You are my favourite bassist of all time, closely followed by Geezer Butler. You’re a true legend.
Keep up the good rock dude!
Hayley x
P.S My picture is signed by your fine self and the wondrous Slash! My sister won it on my behalf. Thanks!

I am happy to see most of you guys back together. I am 29 now. And been with you guys since I was 15. I saw GNR in concert in Hartford in 93 or 94. Awesome. Duff. Keep on the Bass. You rule on that thing. My step father had a friend that drove Buses for bands. And he drove for GNR when you guys first came out. I was told you came to Greenfield MA at one point. If I had known. I would of tried to stop by. You guys have your shit together. And it is nice to see you have Matt on Drums. Now if you all could only make it to Springfield Civic Center or Amherst MA for a show. Hell, stop by my house if you like. Have a B-B-Q.  I had to write something. To 14 years later and from being a teen to a father of 4, soon to be 5.

Post by: zepsun on November 01, 2004, 09:41:00 PM
I'm a broadcasting and film student...Also a big fan of everyone's work in VR, STP, GNR etc...

I'm really interested in doing a piece on VR from a fan's point of view.
I'm wondering if it's possible to do a small interview with the band for my college newspaper...maybe record it for the radio station.  I know you guys are super fuckin busy... but i figured it wouldn't hurt to ask.

If u happen to read this, u (or the webmaster) can respond here or at my email: pokee01@cp.centennialcollege.ca

Thanks,

hey dude, this is probably pointless posting this as it will probably neva get answered, but ive looked far and wide, even tho its quite a simple question i have neva found the answer. I play bass, fender jazz aerodyne actually, and i spend alot of my time learnin gnr bass lines, from back in the day, gotta love those runs you do, n ive been tryin for awile to get as close to ur sound as possible, but i know that you used to also use a chorus pedal, which brings me to my question, what type did u use? ive tried everywhere but i just cant find the answer to it,  id really like to know, as the sound i want to get when i play original bass lines in songs is the sound u used to have. could ya please help out? id seriously appreciate it..

peace dude

ps: u shuld be coming to bdo, i heard u were in negociations, what happened? actually neva mind ur probably not even allowed to talk about that... just help us out wit the pedal... cheers

Hey Duff!     My names Aysha and I live in genva, switzerland. Just wanted to know if you still keep any contact with Iggy Pop? I was wondering 'cause I just recently went to buy the only Iggy Pop CD that I didnt have which was brick by brick and I noticed that you and Slash took a part in that CD. I thought that CD was great and I especialy liked "Home". I started to take an interest in him after I met him once. It was when he did american ceasar and was looking kind of scary with long jet black hair and cuts all over is chest. I was only six so i was terified.
     Well... It would be great if you could do another show in Switzerland again. I know its a really small place but you guys have shit loads of fans here! I drove all the way from Geneva to the other side of switzerland to catch your show in winterthur. But it was worth it. You guys fuckin' rocked!! Well it's really cool of you to answer all our questions.                                      

                            Thanks and keep on rockin'!!!!!

C'mon dude, a chorus pedal is a chorus pedal. The sound also has to do with your pickups and your amp.

Hey Duff,
I just wanted to thank you for the show night before last in Cincy.  I know that you post here on occasion and I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you.  My friend and I where in the front row right in front of you, Im not sure if you remember but I had really shaggy hair and I was the kid singing every word to every song.  And I was also able to get one of your bass picks after the show.  Seeing you all live was more than a dream come true.  My friend and I drove over 4 hours from KY to come see you all and we hope to see you again soon.
Thanks,
Dave

Here are some pics I took of you front the front row:

Title: Question for Duff
Post by: lyns78 on November 10, 2004, 09:59:34 PM
Dear Duff,

Ok, so I don't know if you'll actually read this or not, I mean it's not as if you're actually busy or anything right?!  :wink:

So anyway, first of all, the Birmingham show kicked some major ass!  Truly the best concert I've ever been to...thank you guys so much.  We were directly in front of you (front row of course)...it was the shit!  And pretty much everyone I know has now seen my Duff pick! LOL! Thanks!

Yeah, yeah, I've got a question...keep your shirt on...or not!

Ok, so I was wondering, what made you, one of the best bass players in the history of rock (at least in my humble opinion), decide to go back to school to get your degree?

I ask for two reasons:

1. I'm a woman, we are born more curious than a cat...we can't help being nosy.

2. Being a graduate student in the middle of finding various ways to maim or kill myself to avoid writing my thesis...I was impressed as hell that a rockstar would subjugate himself to such horrors!  And again, I'm nosy, so I wondered why!

Ok, sorry for the long-ass post, if you ever read this (God you must be bored by now).  So answer if you want...or tell me to fuck off it's none of my business...whatever mood strikes you!   :cool:

Have a great tour and I'll see you guys again soon...front row again of course!

Lyndsey

P.S.--DAMN...I do tend to ramble don't I?!

I was at the PA show last night.  Duff was INCREDIBLE!  I had to amke an effort to look at the other guys.  We had floor seats and I made sure I was just left of center, becuase I knew that's where Duff would be.  When they came out and started STB, Duff was like a God standing in front of me!  I waited for a chance to get a guiter (bass) pic from him, but there was a little kid, probably about 7 yrs. old beside me.  Duff came over and looked the kid, got a big smile, and gave it the kid.  What a big heart!  I guess I can't be too upset, he gave it the kid!

What I was wondering, was what about adding "Attitude" to the set list?

Hey Duff,

Have you got any info for us about the project(s) that Izzy is working on right now? Cause there hasn't been much news about him (with the exception of the Dolls reunion) since last year when he was suppose to release his album Like A Dog. I read that you still talk to him on the phone alot so... :wink:

Also are you planning to come to Holland again in the near future?

hallo Duff! *waves like a dork*

been listening to you guys since i bought my first ever album Appetite when i was 11.
i always thought your basslines were more then just basslines, and thats got to do with the fact you were a guitarist before that.
but i was wondering if you ever learned classical music, cos some runs/licks/fills are classical....i sometimes hear vivaldi and beethoven basslines and i dont use drugs or even drink alcohol  8)

second...am i right when i say you have lost the chain/lock thing around your neck which was Sid inspired?

third, can you try to convince Slash to play double talkin jive just for once live or jam session and record it so it can be posted here, cos he has grown a lot as a guitarist and we wanna hear him do 15 minute solos!...like i try to explain here, the 6th post :

http://www.velvetrevolverforum.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7827&start=30

fourth, i truly wish you all the best, you prove you are a sincere person by checking out what we have to say....most of the time its gibberish yes, but hey!  8)

be well
cheerz

Hey Duff,

Are you guys going to come back to the U.S. this summer (2005) to tour, or are you guys going to take some time off from the road?

If you guys do add more U.S. tour dates, is there any hope for the South? Biloxi, MS? Mobile, AL? Pensacola, FL?

I know you guys are busy, but it would mean alot! You guys are the best & that's why we love you! - Scarlett

Duff,

Why are the shows so short?  That is the one thing I here over and over from the reviews of the concerts.  Everyone says the shows are barely an hour.  I know you only have one album, but you don't play all the songs and you could do more covers....or better yet, include the new stuff you've been working on.... 8)

Still think you rock.  See you Sunday.

Where are you, Duff? It's been almost a month since your last post! If you guys plan to go to Disney World in Orlando,FL, be sure to get there early & start from the back of the park & move toward the front as the day progresses. If you don't, you will have to stand in 2-3 hour lines all day since December is the busiest time of year. Maybe, you can persuade Yoko to give us a run-down of the events that take place before, during, & after the show there. I look forward to hearing from you & Yoko soon. Lots of love to all. ---Scarlett

hey Duff,
eveytime I hear Mick Jagger sing "old habits die hard,harder than november rain" I think its the coolest thing that he's using a Gn'R song title in his lyrics.Does that seem totally amazing to you guys that he put a Gn'R reference in one of his songs after all the Stones references you guys had in yours?Does it feel like a dream come true when someone you've been inspired by is inspired by you?

Title: Message for Duff from a fan
Post by: ben785 on January 02, 2005, 04:07:30 AM
Hi

I know Duff reads this board and posts; I also know its a long shot of him ever seeing this message, but what the hell

I'll keep this short. Duff, my name is Ben I am a 19 year old from Sydney Australia. Just want to say I'm a big fan of your work with Velvet Revolver and your contributions to your previous project Guns and Roses and even all the way back to Ten Minute Warning, which I thought was a great punk / rock band. I am primarily a guitar player but you have been a huge influence on me since I started playing guitar and took up bass lessons and now hearing your work on the Velvet Revolver album moved me to scrap some coins together and sacrifice half the fees for my college courses to buy a $300 (AU) Fender Jazz Bass. You are without a doubt one of the greatest rock and roll (Scratch that...all round one of the best) bass players of all time. I also appreciate your work with your side project LOADED that you did prior to the formation of VR.

I look forward to seeing you play onstage in your upcoming tour date in Sydney, Australia next month, and I hope I am lucky enough to meet you before / after the show to express my gratitude and support in person

I know you probably get millions of messages like this every day, completely rightfully so, but yeah this is just another message so I guess you'll just accept it in passing, but I thank you for taking the time to read this should you happen across it.

Thank you for your inspiration. Keep up the great work and all the best in the future for you sir.

Title: Questions/Comments for Duff ~
Post by: prisca_magnolia on February 01, 2005, 09:42:10 PM
Dear Duff,

I don’t know whether u read this or not. But I just want u to know that I’m a really big fan of Guns N’ Roses—now Velvet Revolver.
Let me talk about Guns N’ Roses, Duff. Please, I know u’ll feel objection, but this what my heart wants to say.
U know, Duff? I don’t know whether u agree or not. But from the first ever since, Guns N’ Roses seems to be a kind of melodrama. Everything that happened to the members of the band’s really dramatic and…u know, maybe if there’s a producer or director who wants to make a movie about u’r lives—I’m sure it’ll get an Oscar. Axl and his past, his relationship with his girlfriends, his manic-depressive, his doubt about how this world should be, how a nobody from Indiana became the most known superstar in this world, etc.
Slash with his journey from London to L.A., how he met Axl and got the chemistry, his ability to hypnotize the people all over the world by his Les Paul. Slash with his relationship with a lot of great musician even before he became a great guitarist. Slash and his battle with Axl.
Izzy with the shockin’ truth. After his lots of ‘whoaaaa’ with Axl in GN’R—after he involved with Axl for a long time since they were in Indiana—he made a decision, such as a prime ministry that retired from his function—he left GN’R and formed Ju Ju Hounds. But it’s really dramatic when the youngman’s still involved with his old-mates (Slash and Duff) until now. Like a brotherhood who had blood relation.
And u Duff. The greatest melodrama of ur life is when you got the pancreas exploded. When u laid on the floor, couldn’t get up, then ur friend came and brought u to hospital. God knows there would be two daughters who’ll complete ur life and make u to be a better man, that’s why. 
And I think the story of GN’R is almost finished. Almost. Why? Because you haven’t seen the klimaks. Yeah, you almost see it. Almost. When Velvet Revolver shocked the world, when the separated brothers made up again. It’s almost a klimaks.
So what will the klimaks be anyway?
Yeah, of course.
William Axl Rose. 
Guns N’ Roses is not a band, actually. It’s a movie, film, melodrama, soap opera. The story’s still unfinished, coz Axl’s still in a never-neverland, while another members have found themselves.
Everybody wants GN’R to be back again. I’m sure it’s not because they want u to be a band, but they want u to be together again, no matter it’ll be a band or not, because u’ve formed a soap. Soap needs certain chemist ingredients. A chemist ingredient runaways, then it won’t be soap.
So…well, maybe u’ll think I’m not a realistic or something like that. But I’m trying. So…if David Lee Roth and friends could be on the stage in MTV VMA long time ago, why can’t u? If Joe Perry could be a brother again for Steven Tyler…why can’t Axl and Slash?
Maybe you’ll say, “Oooh, Axl’s not the same as both David Lee Roth or Joe Perry.”
Then I’ll say, “Axl’s not the same as Kurt Cobain too.”
Why Kurt Cobain can’t hang around again with both Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic?
Because Kurt Cobain has passed away!
Axl’s still alive, right? As long as he can breathe the air, as long as his heart still beats, what’s impossible anyway?
So there’s only one thing that’ll make everything becomes impossible.
Death.
Why I say all these to u Duff, because u’ve been in time where you almost meet the death.
What did u feel…? Certainly, u felt u’ll never do anything again. Then u’r memories went to the past where u still being a healthy man. A usual guy from Seattle made a journey, with his faith in his heart about ‘I-have-to-be-a-star’. Absolutely, everybody thought it’s impossible. But hey, then u said, “What’s impossible anyway? I’m here, alive.”
Then after the toxic flew out to ur stomach, you certainly thought that, “This is it. If I meet this—the death—then I won’t have a chance to do anything again. But if God’s willing to give me a chance to be alive…then there’s nothing impossible for me…”
 
So what d’you think, Mr. Michael Andrew McKagan…?

There are a lot of great musicians out there, and they can all be a lot better then they are. There is always room for improvement, no matter how great you are. One of the things that makes a great player, is the music that inspires them. If you could recommend to anyone that wants to become a great musician, or bassist in particular, what 5 albums would you recommend to that person to better their range and skills. What would you tell them to sink into their head?

I know you went to the Verizon Wireless Arena awhile back and I didn't get to go. But I REALLY want to to see you guys in concert so you gotta come back to NH, or somewhere near NH. Pretty please!    :wink:

Last night I went to the VR gig in Christchurch and of course it rocked.  But anyway at the end of the gig the guys were leaving the stage and Duff was waving to crowd and then he turned to walk off stage and I yelled out to him and he turned around and waved at me!!  

Now this is probably not a big deal to most people, but I have been a huge Duff fan for 15+ years and this is the closest I will probably ever get to him so I am completly buzzing!!   :smitten:

Oh fellow Duff lover, I *UNDERSTAND.*

I went seeking his attention too when he was here.  My first plan didn't work, so I went into an emergency plan B, took out my eyeliner, and simply wrote his name on my palm, and when he was playing in my corner of the stage, simply waved my hand and he smiled at me!

The original plan had me throwing a fake yellow rose at the stage.  He was kind of busy rocking out and only stepped on it (at least he touched it :( )..and then the roadies threw off.  I was lucky to get it back and throw it up a second time, but he didn't see that either...

Last night I went to the VR gig in Christchurch and of course it rocked.  But anyway at the end of the gig the guys were leaving the stage and Duff was waving to crowd and then he turned to walk off stage and I yelled out to him and he turned around and waved at me!!  

Now this is probably not a big deal to most people, but I have been a huge Duff fan for 15+ years and this is the closest I will probably ever get to him so I am completly buzzing!!   :smitten:

So thanks Duff - oh and by the way you guys completly rocked last night!!  


Lucky you! Congrats!

Man thats so cool!  Duff ROCKS!!

I also tried getting his attention whenever he came near by giving him the thumbs up and jumping up and down (I might have looked like an idiot but it worked).... and he smiled and nodded at me.  :D

Duff's gal, I can totally understand your joy..........as we all can!!.  Its great that he waved at you x x xx

The thing I noticed at the VR gigs I have been to both Duff and Dave try and make eye contact with the crowd..where as Slash just rocks out and doesn't look at the crowd too much.

At Manchester this yr, Duff stood there playing away looking right at everyone...........I am sure he looked at me and my sister and our hearts just stood still!!!!.  He probably wasn't but the feeling was wierd!!.

Nice Story duffs gal, glad you had a great time.

God you're so lucky duffs gal and everyone else! I went to see a concert of theirs once. it was so great is was like it got me high and he might have looked at me (as I was the youngest person there) but I couldn't notice since I felt so high. I'd really like to catch his attention again though so at least I can be sure of it next time. You guys have come up with some good stuff. I really have to try the eyeliner thing!  :)

duff..

you and J(Luna Sea) are friends??? for real???
I didnot recognize you said his name right before you played
'it's so easy' on Feb. 8th @ Zepp Tokyo.
but, yesterday, i got a bootleg of that day, and I've heard you said his name and dedicated the song to J!
Ooooooooh....my.....
J is my favorite bassist from JPN.
(I don't like J-Rock, but do like his team-Luna Sea
'cause he reminds me of YOU at times when he's on the stage.
I don't know why but I guess you'll know what I mean..)
anyway, I was so suprised to know it
and also little bit sad 'cause i could not find J @ there then.  :lol:
(just kiddig..hehehe~)

well, take care,
don't forget to visit Korea next time,
and Keep on Rockin'!

hey duff.... i just wanted to say thankyou for signing my bass (and thanks matt slash and dave too), mine was tht fender jazz aerodyne that got sent back stage.... even if you didnt come back out like u said u would (on the first nite), the roadie took it into you and you signed it anyway.... (oh and thanks for signing the short russian chicks bass on the second night, shes a friend of mine
) it was one amazing experiance seeing you play live... i think you looked at me on the second nite, i was that kid with the semi longish blonde hair that went absolutly nuts every time you came down to the bottom of the left side of the stage (the audiences left), i waited around after the show hoping you would come over n greet the fans, but yea u didnt...but thankyou again for signing my bass..... i hope that some time in the future you guys come back to australia one day so i finally get the chance to meet you in person.... thankyou duff, for signing my bass, putting on a great show, and being an amazing person...

I'm starting a thread just for questions and comments for Duff so it might be easier to find then individual topics.


omg, earlier, i saw a thread that had his comments posted, but i can't find it again! damn it! *miffed* anyways, i got excited and decided to pm him, in high hopes that he replies back sometime. which would be sick. here's what i sent to him:

hey duff,

not sure if you really are duff, but, um, i was wondering if you could look at some of these songs that i wrote at fictionpress.com. if you can see my signature below the text, the link for my songs should be called: "VampyricRocker's Original Songs & Poetry". it would be a great honor to me if you read "Fortress of Solitude", "Away from the Sun", and/or "desperately trying". also, submit a review there or just tell me here! those last two songs that i mentioned, i had VR in mind to sing it along with gavin rossdale and dave navarro. gosh, i hope you are the real duff. *dude, did i sound dumb or what? lol*

later and hope to hear from you soon,

You are the best bass player i have ever seen. I love VR, you guys sounded exactly like your record in concert, it was so sweet.

I am a begging drummer and i love GnR and VR. It would b awesome to talk to you. So i f you get this and you could find time out of your day or something to e-mail me, that would make my day and be so awesome. ROCK ON!!!

Hey Duff, just a quick thank you in case you read this. I saw you at the Atlanta show on May 6th. You singned my ticket stub and program. I've been waiting 15 years to get a chance to talk to you guys and my dream finally came true. You and Slash were great but you really seemed to enjoy the fans. It's nice to know you guys are so down to earth. Anyway, thanks again and please never let the music die!

I totally agree! you have a really good voice!!  8)

I just wanted to let you know that ever since I saw you on February 19th my whole life has changed. (well seeing all of you has changed my life) but I'd like to thank you because there is a reason behind why a part of my life has changed. Before the concert I had horrible anxiety (haha definitely no fun!) and because of that I couldn't think straight... I felt like a complete mess. To be honest I was pretty scared, because a day before the concert I didn't think that I would have the best time in my life...I thought this horrible mental cycle would destroy me and would cause me to not enjoy myself. (as silly as that sounds) but something happened. Something I have never been able to get over.

On the night of the concert I managed to get front row! but the most amazing thing is that you managed to also see me! I know you have seen so many fans all over the world but I'd just like to let you know that because you saw me and noticed me that has changed a whole part of me. It is awesome to know that you care alot about your fans out there and have alot of passion for what you do! I can't begin to tell you how amazed, shocked and happy I was to have got the chance to see you and the rest of the band on that very night! now when I look back on how things turned out I can't begin to imagine how amazing it was!

I haven't had Anxiety ever since but if somehow it doe's trigger off again I will look back to the time when I saw you front row and the rest of vr and remember that you changed that very part of my life!!

Keep rocking because YOU truly are and definitely an INSPERATION to many fans across the world including me!

Take Care & Rock on!  :headbanger:

thanks for the heads up there.

wow. big family there. my mom had about five sibs. she was the middle child.

hmmm...i wonder how often duff comes online but doesn't post here. just reads this stuff. this doesn't have to be answered or anything.

well, i guess i'll say something to duff before i decide to get to bed here before my brain totally dies on me here:

Hey Duff,

Have you ever considered collaborating with other artists on upcoming songs and albums with VR? Say, like Dave Grohl or Dave Navarro. People like that.

The show was awesome, I was in the pit in the very front on your side. I kept screaming "I LOVE YOU" but I was never sure if you saw me...a couple of times I thought you looked at me but I wasn't sure considering there were so many people. You gave your pick to the guy right beside me, man I wanted to cry. I thought you were handing it to me, but nope. lol...I was like NOOOOO! lol. Anyways, I just wanted to tell you that I think you are such an awesome musician! PLEASE please PLEASE come somewhere close to Lexington, Ky. That's where I'm at and we don't ever get shit here, nobody comes. I think it would be so awesome if VR would come and rock this shit hole town! Keep up the good work, and can't wait for the next album! Love ya!!!!! **Amanda

Hi Duff. Me again. I've just thought up a few questions.

1.If you could have half an hour in a room with Axl Rose and no consequenses what would you do?
2. If you had to, which one would you give up? Your musical ability or your sex drive?
3.If someone of the same sex (or the oppisite sex if you are gay) offered you $163 million for a quick shag no strings attached, would you accept?

I have a few things. First of all, Duff you are the best bass player I've ever heard. Second, my daughter is learning to play the electric guitar at 10. She wants to learn to play bass too (because of you). Especially after we saw VR in concert she thinks you rock on the bass. You're a good singer too. I can't wait to buy Beautiful Disease.

Hello Duff,

When VR goes on their next tour, can you be sure to do more NYC shows?  Like, play MSG 2-3 nights in a row and before the 1st Garden show and after the last Garden show, play a smaller club like the Roseland?  One thing about NY'ers; no one drives!!!!

Last tour, every show in the NY/NJ metro area sold out in about a minute.  Sayervile, AC, E. Rutherford are all in the area but not the city.

The two shows I saw were in Philly (Electric factory and Spectrum) and were fucking awesome, but, that being said,  there is an entirely different energy level in a NYC audience. 

Thanks.  You guys rock.  Best rock band to come out since 1987.

What about Duffs solo songs ? Are Mezz, Then and now, Dark Days and especially Seattle Head just history or is there a slight
chance to hear these songs (same with slashs beggars and hangerson etc.) ever live again ?
Velvet Revolver did some Gnr songs live in the past, what about playing some of their solo stuff too ?

Hi Duff  :wave:. I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. My husband, daughter and I went out of town this year just so we could be alone and we had the best time just sharing our love with each other. I love being alone with my family, don't you? Anyway, I hope you got to share the love with your family too.

Salutations and Hallucinations!

A couple quick questions Duff, if you don't mind......

Do you have any tips for a bass player who wants to speed up their playing? I'm kinda new to Bass, but I've been playing guitar for nearly four years now, and bass half as long.

What style of Martial Arts have you taken? I know you mentioned it in an interview with VH1 as your "rehab", but I'd like to know a little more.

You've been a great inspiration to me as a bass player and as an all-around person. Thanks for doing what you do, and please don't stop!

The promo CDs were released before the whole thing was dropped at a low point in Guns N Roses album sales. Since the rights (From what I understand) are in Geffen's hands for a legal release (bootlegs are really expensive, but from what I've heard really good), it's really out of Duff's hands. Here's a petition that one of the other members on this board started to get Beautiful Disease released - http://new.petitiononline.com/BDcamp/petition.html

I do believe that this has been posted somewhere else but I'll repeat the abbreviated version...legally, Duff cannot release beautiful disease, it's the property (per contractual obligations) of Geffen.  He does however own the songs themselves (hence the reason why some of them ended up on the loaded CD).  I'm sure it's a money thing, he might be able to "buy" back the CD or try to get geffen to release it, but he can't just go out and do it himself.

What I wanna know is this:
Duff has a large dagger tattoo on his left forearm with "Susan Forever" and "Rocker 1964" but what does the bottom banner say?
There's a bit of a debate about it. Some are saying its "LAMF" and others are saying it's "DKMY". Now the "LAMF" makes more sense to me but when I looked at the only picture I could find (which wasn't a clear one anyway) it did look like "DKMY". Can anyone tell me the correct answer and back it up?
BTW that tattoo is a true work of art!!!!!!!!

That's LAMF, and that makes sense. What would DKMY mean anyway?

"Left Forearm: Banners say Susan Forever, Rocker 1964 LAMF"

Hey Fluff,  I had the privilege of seeing VR in Saskatoon Sk, Canada, and I have to say It was the greatest show I've seen since KISS.  I made you a poster, which said "Duff I believe In You"  It was on bright green posterboard, I asked one of the guys on the stage if he would give it to you, and when I left it was sitting on your amp, or someones amp.. I was just wondering if you got my poster, and what you thought.  I hope all is well with you and your family.  Take Care, Rock on!

Okay I may have asked this question a couple of years ago, but since I am getting older and my memory is getting foggier, I can't even remember what username I used on this site!  So....obviously this has been bugging me for a couple of years, so am hoping I can resolve this issue once and for all!! And anyone who is a forum member, feel free to set me straight....

About the song Sweet Child O' Mine (sorry dragging up old GNR stuff)...I was watching a thing on VH1 and it said that that song was written by Axl about one of his girlfriends...but I distinctly recall reading in either a Hit Parader or Metal Edge magazine or seeing it on a Hard n Heavy VHS interview....back in the day that Duff had written that song and no one liked it at the time, but they put it on because there was an empty song slot on the album, thus the shock that it was such a success....maybe I am thinking of a different song...but I don't think so!!! Driving me nuts whenever I come across a blurb of text or an interview or whatever....does this sound familiar to anyone besides me?
Title: Re: Questions/Comments for Duff ~
Post by: Just_Me on February 24, 2007, 03:30:41 AM
The only story I've heard on the origins of SCOM is that it started out with the riff in the intro, which Slash played as a joke.  Then Duff and Izzy started playing along and it kind of developed into a full song, which they all thought was too sappy for GNR, but Axl liked it and used a poem he'd written for his girlfriend for lyrics.
It wouldn't suprise me if they weren't originally planning to include it on the album though.

You could be thinking of Paradise City, which Duff came up with initally and the rest of the band added to on the way home from the Hell Tour.
Title: Re: Questions/Comments for Duff ~
Post by: 2old2bwritingduff on February 24, 2007, 10:24:14 PM
Thank you...I guess the that just proves my point that the memory banks are getting foggier and foggier as the years go by!!!

On another note, I hope VR stays strong and continues to bust out great albums (umm who buys  albums anymore)....anyway I am stuck in Alaska for two more years, so I don't get to see very many concerts anymore, but once I get back to the Seattle area, I hope to catch a few shows from time to time...I got to see GNR twice, once with Iron Maiden and then later with Skid Row....*sigh* miss those days!

Hey there Duff!

This may sound like a really goofy question but here goes.

You have some major ink going on there. I always considered tattoos to be personal reflections of one's self. At least mine seem to be. Anyway, do you have any that are most sentimental to you? Also do you work up your design/idea before going into the shop or do you let the ink artist use his/her imagination?

I'm just curious. I'm working on my 5th, 6th and 7th. Then I think I'll call it quits.

Peace and luv,

Patty

First of all, im a big Velvet Revolver fan.  I got tickets to the show in Alabama and i can't wait for it.  The only thing ive been wondering is how do you decide what cover songs you do because it seems that you switch cover songs frequently. And also, why don't yall do Rocket Queen because it seems like with Scott's powerful voice, yall could pull an awesome version of that song.
That's my favourite song! I would love that!

Not sure if I heard this correctly but did Duff go back to college once he left GNR?

Attitude is one of my favorite songs and i play it at home a lot (of course).  I've got two little boys (3 and 6 yr) and they don't speak English. But they do 'sing' "attitu fucking fucking attitu". And it's been a dream of me for a long time to see the song live on stage...

*** blinking eyes on***
Could you please convince the band to make a two minute-space in VR's show in Amsterdam on April 1 2008 to play attitude :?:

Hey!!! Just thought I'd stick a Happy Birthday in here too!!

As mentioned just before me, by Kaybee... if you and the boys could take 2 mins in the Adelaide show to do Attitude or for that matter anything else with you on lead vocals, i would be one very very very happy fan... i really think you are a fantastic singer!

Here's hoping someone releases Beautiful Disease one day!!

Yo Duff!!  Whats the deal with some stuff im hearing about your guy's future looking weak as a band? Im pretty sure they qUoted you saying something to the effect that you dont really expect much from the furure or something like that... is that just the media putting a negative spin on things or is it for real?
R'n'F'n'R

To the King of Beers Mr. Duff "Rose" McKAgan!!!
Title: Thank You Duff

Hey there Duff,
   I just wanted to take the time to thank you for everything.  I met you over 4 years ago and you were nothing but a truely graceful man. You made me feel worthwhile to spend time with even though you had never met me before.   I apreciate that more than anything.   I have loved your music formany years and I grew up with "believe in me" which you signed for me.  I was too much in shock to tell you that  this album in particular is amzing and i never get tired of listening to it. It has helped me get through some trying times in my life and no matter what, I could always count on you to be there to cheer me up.  I am looking forward to seeing you this summer with Loaded and I am so excited!!   

So, thank you Duff for evrything and ROCK AND ROLL!

Yeah that would be great.

Very unlikely you'll read this but you and Slash are my main influences musically, I love all your records (GN'R, VR, Loaded, Neurotic Outsiders, Believe In Me, Beatiful Disease etc.) and it was great to meet you last month (thanks for being so cool). Keep up the rock n' roll, its the fucking best.  :D

I have a few questions. I must first say that I am a hugely huge fan of Duff, seriously obsessed and there is nothing wrong with it, I hope not, cause my friends think I have a serious problem!!! Anyways, when are you going to come and do a show here in Ontario Canada?? I saw Velvet Revolver in 2007 when you were at the Molson Ampitheatre and I was amazed, the show was amazing anthe closest thing for me to see with real live members of Guns N Roses!!! It was one hell of a night!! And last question. When you had a guest part in the tv show Sliders, how did you feel about the whole acting thing? Did you like it or dislike it? If you liked it, have you ever thought about doing anything else in the acting business? Cause I thought it was really good!! Well peace, rock on, and hope to see you in a show some time in the near future, I'll be waiting!!

hey Duff , if you listen to  NPR radio, "this american life" did a great special on the banking crisis and how we got here.

it gets into detailed info about the mortgage industry, bank assets , marking to market etc  ,and really makes it all make sense in laymen terms.

Some great material for your column if you care to listen.  Ira Glass puts together some great shows !
