DUFF MCKAGAN To Pen ALICE IN CHAINS Biography
Rumour has Ex-Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan writing the official biography for Alice In Chains.
McKagan has written two books already and told “Louder Than Hell” co-author Katherine Turman that he was in talks with the band about penning their story. McKagan explained where the project stands. “Just last week, I talked to Sean [Kinney, Alice In Chains drummer],” he said. “Friday night, we talked at length. Like, ‘If you want me to do it, now’s the time, ’cause I’m done with this book. I’ll have this summer that I can start on it, you guys are working on music, you can put your record out, put the book out…’ Like, make it a whole thing. I’m a proponent of that band, I think it’s just a victorious story.”
McKagan’s new book, “How To Be A Man (And Other Illusions)”, came out on May 12 through Da Capo Press. The bassist released a three-song EP, also called “How To Be A Man”, in conjunction with the book’s publication.
McKagan has also written for Seattle Weekly and played with Alice In Chains on their 2006 comeback tour.
