Duff & DMW
« on: August 07, 2014, 05:07:23 PM »
Duff keeps himself busy, apart from still working with Walking Papers, he'll be guesting at a show of "supergroup" Dead Men Walking:
Quote
The core members of the group are Captain Sensible of the Damned, Slim Jim Phantom of the Stray Cats, and Mike Peters of the Alarm, though the show will also feature guest appearances by Fred Armisen, Chris Cheney of the Living End and the Wrights, and Duff McKagan of Guns N’ Roses. Dead Men Walking’s set will include its members’ bands’ classic songs, favorite covers, and new material. Other surprise appearances are being teased, too

Duff & Ramones tribute
« Reply #1 on: August 26, 2014, 09:20:38 AM »
Also, Duff has just taken part in a Johnny Ramone tribute in LA:

Quote
Duff McKagan pays tribute to his heroes. Earlier, he said "As a 13-year-old kid living up in Seattle, the Ramones were the first punk band to come play. They were like my Kiss. So 10 or 12 years later, Appetite [for Destruction] came out, I got an opportunity to meet the Ramones, and I actually didn't want to because I didn't want to ruin anything. They still remain bigger than life to me."

With and without Armisen, Dead Men Walking also performed the Damned classics "Neat Neat Neat," "Wait for the Blackout," "New Rose," and "Smash It Up"; the Stray Cats' "Runaway Boys," "Rumble in Brighton" (retitled "Rumble in West Hollywood"), and "Rock This Town"; the Alarm's "The Stand," "45 RPM," and "Sold Me Down the River"; Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child O' Mine" (which McKagan sheepishly dismissed with "enough of that rubbish!") mashed up with the Monkees' "Stepping Stone"; and, garnering one of the best crowd responses of the night, the Living End's "Prisoner of Society," which Peters described as "the 'Bohemian Rhapsody' of punk." They also treated the sold-out audience — which included Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister, Orange is the New Black's Natasha Lyonne, and Ramones widow Linda Ramone — to covers of the Stooges, Nick Lowe, the Misfits, and the Beastie Boys.

I don't think Duff will be on the DMW album, but he's mentioned in this article:

Quote
The band began as a live act, sometimes featuring appearances from Duff McKagan and Fred Armisen, before eventually making their way to the studio and recording Easy Piracy. We're happy to share an exclusive stream of all 15 of the album's upbeat, tuneful songs.
