Video: SEBASTIAN BACH And DUFF MCKAGAN Perform GUNS N’ ROSES’ ‘Patience’
Video footage of Sebastian Bach (Skid Row) and Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver, Loaded, Walking Papers) performing a cover of GN’R’s “Patience” at a private event in Los Angeles on May 28 is now online!
In a 2008 radio interview, Bach was asked if there was any truth to the rumors that he was being considered for the lead-singer position in Velvet Revolver following that group’s split with Scott Weiland.
“I’ve talked to Slash [Velvet Revolver / ex-Guns N’ Roses guitarist] recently,” Sebastian responded. “I think it’d be really awkward for me to join that band. Number one, my new record, ‘Angel Down’, I like it more than Velvet Revolver records. That’s just being totally honest. I love Guns N’ Roses material, but I’ve got my own old songs [from Skid Row], so, for me, it would all depend on music. I wouldn’t just join the band just to join the band. If we came up with some incredible new songs, then maybe I’d think about it, but honestly, I’m very close friends with Axl [Rose, Guns N’ Roses singer], and he sings three songs on my [‘Angel Down’] record. Axl’s been so nice to me — he’s helped me out my whole career. In Skid Row he helped us out, and in my solo band he brought me around the world, and then sang three songs on my new CD, which is pretty mind-blowing. I don’t know… It’s a cut-throat business, but Axl’s been so nice to me, I don’t think I would feel comfortable just joining Velvet Revolver and singing [Axl’s] songs every night. So I don’t think that’s gonna happen.”
McKagan played on Bach’s latest solo album, 2014’s “Give ‘Em Hell”.
Duff and Sebastian previously collaborated on McKagan’s 1993 solo album, “Believe In Me”.
