Duff McKagan Talks About Loaded Documentary In New Video Interview

Duff McKagan recently spoke to the Artisan News Service (see video below) about the upcoming feature-length film about him and his band Loaded. The movie is based on Loaded's new album, "The Taking", and was helmed by Seattle filmmaker and documentarian Jamie Burton Chamberlin.

In a November 2010 interview with West Seattle Herald, Chamberlin said that the film "will be a contemporary version of, say, (The Beatles')'Hard Day's Night' meets (Led Zeppelin's) 'The Song Remains the Same', with aspects of documentary, music video, and live performance, all interconnected by an underlying motivation. The album will serve as the soundtrack." He added, "Everything will be shot in Seattle and the Northwest. We hope to use locations in West Seattle and other familiar settings to create these vignettes that develop organically within them."

"Not a lot of artists out there are interested in going to this extreme of having their music interpreted in film," said Chamberlin. "This project wouldn't be happening without Duff's vision, and the support of people like Rick Canny at Sanctuary management, Loaded's manager.

"Duff is a super guy, one of the nicest guys you could meet. He has shown a strong commitment to getting this project off the ground. He's got a great business sensibility and is totally creative, qualities that draw me to him as an artist. He's just a classy cat."
