VELVET REVOLVER Bassist Interviewed On KISW's 'The BJ Shea Morning Experience'; Audio Available

July 25, 2008

VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES bassist Duff McKagan was interviewed earlier in the month by "The BJ Shea Morning Experience" on the Seattle station KISW 99.9 FM. Also sitting in on the chat was McKagan's longtime friend, Dave Dederer of the Grammy-nominated and platinum-selling band THE PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Listen to the hour-long program in two parts: Part#1, Part#2.

McKagan and Dederer are both on the advisory board of, a Seattle-based synchronized web and mobile music service that allows anyone to upload and listen to his/her iTunes music in hi-fi quality on any web-connected PC, mobile phone or BlackBerry smartphone, as well as explore other users' playlists and share music with friends.

"First and foremost, I'm a music fan and a musician," McKagan previously said. "And nuTsie is all about the music. Getting your own music anywhere, anytime. Finding new songs that you like, which is a rush for me even after all these years of listening to and playing music.

"I've seen a lot go down over the years with GN'R and now VELVET REVOLVER," added McKagan. "Working with nuTsie is a great opportunity to put my experience to work for one of the most viable new digital music models. This is also a chance for me personally to get more active in the business world, which is one of my long-term personal goals."

nuTsie is also available on Facebook with an application that allows users to play, share and explore the music that matters most to them — full tracks from their iTunes libraries and their friends' iTunes libraries.
