Duff McKagan: "It´s So Easy (And Other Lies)"; First 80 Pages Posted Online

Duff McKagan's much-anticipated autobiography, "It's So Easy (And Other Lies)", is scheduled to arrive on October 4 via Touchstone Books, a division of Simon & Schuster. The first 80 pages of the book can now be read at this location.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine, McKagan stated about the 304-page hardcover, "It's not really my story, it's really not even my autobiography or memoir. I think that term is overused. It is a story of some shit that happened to me, but probably not the typical (things) what people might expect. It's not my story of Guns n' Roses or Velvet Revolver. All of those things are sort of in it, because they're things I bounced through as I was getting deeper and deeper into addiction and finding my way out. It was challenging going through some of these things that I hadn't thought about for a long time. And writing forces you to take your own part of your life, of what role you actually played - as opposed to the one you make up later on."
