GUNS N' ROSES bassist Duff McKagan is featured in Amoeba Music's "What's In My Bag?" segment in which he talks about some of the records he is into.
In the clip below, he can be seen shopping at Amoeba in Hollywood, where he talks about various records from Pat Travers, Prince, MINOR THREAT, ADOLESCENTS and G.B.H., among others.
Duff's new solo album, "Tenderness" will be released on May 31. The disc sees McKagan reflecting on his experiences traveling the globe over two and a half years on GUNS N' ROSES' "Not In This Lifetime" tour. Encountering heartbreak, anger, fear, confusion and divide on his travels during this tumultuous time in our world history, McKagan channeled a collective hurt into songs of monolithic power.
McKagan and producer Shooter Jennings began recording "Tenderness" a year ago, working out of Station House studios, located in Echo Park, California, where they wrote and recorded in-between McKagan's tour with seminal rock band GUNS N' ROSES and the release of Jennings's eponymous album, "Shooter". "Tenderness" features Jennings and his band along with appearances by The Waters and The Suicide Horn Section (which features Duff's brother Matt McKagan on trombone), amongst others.
More than a year later, they're gearing up to take these songs on the road for a North American tour that kicks off May 30 at TLA in Philadelphia.
