DUFF McKAGAN - "Before DANKO JONES Came Into My Life, I Missed Him So Bad"
March 21, 2013, 4 years ago
DUFF McKAGAN of GUNS N' ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER, and LOADED, gives tremendous praise to Toronto's DANKO JONES in his latest blog for Seattle Weekly; an excerpt follows:"I got to spend a couple of weeks in February touring Australia with Danko Jones. They are one of those bands that peeked into my rock consciousness at just the right time. They are the real deal.
Danko Jones have put out a handful of records since 2002, have toured the world and gained a strong foothold in Europe and Canada. Seattle gets to see them at the Showbox Market on Friday night with VOLBEAT.
The newest record, Rock And Roll Is Black And Blue, is an ass-kicker. I challenge you to crank up 'The Masochist' and 'Just A Beautiful Day', and not break a good-god-damn hot sweat."
