On March 7th and 8th, DUFF McKAGAN'S LOADED and ADLER - featuring Duff McKagan and Steven Adler of GUNS N' ROSES fame respectively - teamed up for two shows in Tokyo (Shibuya), Japan. Footage of the bands performing the G'N'R classics 'Sweet Child O' Mine' and 'It's So Easy' on March 7th has been posted online and is available below:
In his latest blog for Seattle Weekly's Reverb titled, My Time In The Bush, McKagan reveals that "I am currently in the midst of a 10-day travelling festival tour of Australia called Soundwave. Extraordinary in its pure logistics, and in its' 6th year-now, a finely tuned mechanism.
The highlight of the festival experience so far has been the fellowship between the acts. With so many people in one place at a time, and so many who don't know each other - I have witnessed a great amount of fraternity between bands: Metal dudes hanging out with pop-punkers, and grind-core badasses hanging out EDM DJs and so on.
Ah, but Australia is a long, long ways away from Europe and the US (where most of the music acts are from). The jet-lag factor with just about everyone there in the first few days, was a pretty hilarious thing to bare witness to. (Personally on my second night in-country, I was so out of it from sleep deprivation, that I thought the huge fruit bats in the trees were monkeys with wings, and that they were surely going to at any time, swoop down and bite my face off. No, I don't drink and don't smoke the crack)."
