Former GUNS N' ROSES and current VELVET REVOLVER bassist Duff McKagan has posted the following message to VELVET REVOLVER's forum:
"Hey everyone, I just wanted to write in to say that I am extremely flattered and lucky to have fans that are as loyal and passionate as you all have shown to be on this forum! The band is doing fucking great and working every day (AND VERY HARD) to make this record something that will [endure] throughout time...without taking a lot of time. We are hoping for a January release depending on a few different factors (producer, studio, etc..). Our collective chemistry is simply stunning, I am very proud to be a part of this thing.
"I noticed that my sister Joan wrote in to tell the real story of my sordid past marriage-wise, and to correct a few odd views on my life now. I am pleased to say that I am extremely happily married (to Susan, of course) with two beautiful daughters that have all made my life so damn complete ...it has been a long road to get here, but I have learned a lot and am ALIVE because of these lessons... Thanks, Duff"
