DUFF MCKAGAN On 'My Planet Rocks'; Audio Available

Duff McKagan (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES, DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED) was interviewed on the December 14, 2008 edition of the "My Planet Rocks" show on the U.K. classic rock radio station Planet Rock. You can listen to the program in four parts below. (Note: The audio for first two parts is a bit shaky.)

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 QUEENSRĊ¸CHE.

DUFF MCKAGAN'S 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," he adds, noting Scott Weiland's recent rancorous departure from VELVET REVOLVER.

In addition to McKagan, LOADED features drummer Geoff Reading (GREEN APPLE QUICK STEP), bassist Jeff Rouse (VENDETTA RED, ALIEN CRIME SYNDICATE) and guitarist Mike Squires (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".
