EXCERPT from METALUNDERGROUND.com
Duff McKagan has written an autobiography titled “It’s So Easy: and other lies.” For those hesitant to read another rock star drug book or are burned out from reading ex-Guns N’ Roses bios, I’m here to say this one is better than most.
The book begins with Duff preparing for his teenage daughter’s birthday party. From this setting he reflects on his childhood (taking acid, sex, and stealing cars) and the height of his addiction, culminating with him in bed unable to move because his pancreas has exploded. Back to his daughter’s party; then toggle back to bad decisions and dropping out of high school.
McKagan’s transformation from punk fan to Guns’ bassist is covered in the first half of the book. There are a few nuggets not covered in the other books (autobiography’s written by Slash and Steven Adler), but most of the stories do in fact match up.
