Video footage of DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED performing an acoustic version of the song "Wasted Heart" live on "The BJ Shea Morning Experience" show on the Seattle radio station KISW 99.9 FM this past Friday (December 12) can be viewed below.
DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED performed at KISW's annual Holiday Hangover Ball on Friday 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 QUEENSRŸCHE.
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".
