Duff McKagan "It's So Easy And Other Lies" @ Moore Theater 03.26.13

March 27, 2013

Duff McKagan took us on an emotional rollercoaster Tuesday night at the Moore Theater.  Fans lined up around the block waiting to get in while a camera crew raced up and down the sidewalk filming for the upcoming biographical documentary based on Duff's best selling book "It's So E asy And Other Lies."

Once inside family, friends and fans of Duff packed the theater exchanging hugs and high fives awaiting the show.  The show began with Duff sitting on a beautiful stage adorned with candles and a chandelier.  He read exerpts from his book taking us on the crazy journey that Duff has been traveling.  He spoke of the highs (literally) and lows of his adventures with Guns and Roses and Velvet Revolver.  Hitting rock bottom then finding the love of his life and beginning the most important journey of all..his family. 

Throughout the night Duff was backed by his band performing soft melodies taking us up and down at the appropriate times of the story.  To end the night Duff was joined by Mike McCready while the giant boom and camera system panned in an out documenting the night.  I am not nearly as articulate a writer as Duff is so I'll simply leave it at that and allow the photos to do the rest of the talking.  I would however like to say one last thing to Duff...

Thank You!

It takes a strong man to face your demons and to realize what is truly important.  I believe that life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond.  We can all learn something from the way Duff McKagan has responded.

A little over a year ago a good friend of mine "Iron" Mike Savoia took an epic photograph of Duff surfing the crowd at Key Arena.  It was so great to see that image featured to finish the show.
