Duff McKagan has shared his hopes for there being a guitar band one day that has the same impact as Guns N’Roses.
In a new interview with Classic Rock, the bassist addresses the subject of rock’n’roll’s future and he reveals his view of things remains optimistic.“Man, I hope so,” he said. “I see these young people coming out to Guns show, and I’m, like, ‘Man, it’s cool you’re coming to see us, but there should be a band that’s 21 or 22 that you’re fucking losing your shit to.’ I don’t know if it’ll be the same, but I fucking hope so.”
Elsewhere in the same interview, he goes into detail about his longstanding musical relationship with Iggy Pop. McKagan appeared on both the 1990 album ‘Brick By Brick’ and his most recent record, ‘Every Loser’. In return, Pop guested no his new solo album, ‘Lighthouse’.
“To me, there’s Prince and there’s Lemmy and there’s Iggy,” McKagan said. “And Iggy is a deity to me – it’s hard for me to have a regular relationship with him, because he’s been a hero of mine since I was 12 or 13 years old and I discovered The Stooges.
