There is a quick little interview with Duff McKagan in the Seattle Weekly blog, where Duff addresses joining Jane’s Addiction, the future of Velvet Revolver and a few other things. Here is a quote from him regarding his new band:
I have been a huge fan of [JA founding bassist] Eric Avery since the mid-’80s, when I would go to see them play at clubs down in L.A. This is not, in my mind, about me replacing him, in any way shape or form. I have a lot of respect for this band and the guys in it. The music that we have been writing is an extension of that mutual respect. AND it’s a blast! Perry Farrell is an absolute visionary. Dave Navarro has always been a guitar player who I have had a lot of respect for. Playing in a rhythm section with Stephen Perkins is almost trancelike. Kick-ass for sure. I also want to make it clear to JA fans that I really appreciate all of the kind words and sentiment directed to me.
