Duff McKagan Joined Guns N` Roses On Stage In Seattle; Videos Posted Online

Ex-Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan joined the latest version of Guns on stage on Friday, December 16th at the Key Arena in Seattle to perform the GN'R classic "You Could Be Mine".

Fan-filmed video footage and a couple of photos of the performance can be seen below.

McKagan's band Loaded is opening two shows for GUNS on that band's current North American tour. Loaded warmed up for Guns N' Roses Friday night and will do so again on Saturday, December 17th at Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

In the latest installment of his column, which appears on Reverb at, McKagan stated about the prospect of opening for his old band, "I was somehow reluctant at first to do this. I love that dude [referring to Guns N' Roses lead singer, and sole remaining original member, Axl Rose], but wanted to sort of stay out of the fray, especially after that whirlwind tour of the world we had just done. AND that damn book tour.

"But this fray is only a fray if I let it be. And now I am actually pretty excited to see my old pal. His band is the nicest bunch of fellas, and I will be home after all. The KeyArena will be rocking . . . and I hope you all show up.

"After all, it is just some dudes doing what they know how to do best: connect with the audience, that fan-ship that has honored us with their presence for so damn long. And THAT, my friends . . . is overwhelming."
