Music fans are often enthralled with the idea of the high-powered lifestyle that their favorite musicians seemingly live, and fail to realize that their public persona is usually an act that’s constructed to help promote their latest albums.

That’s certainly the case in co-writer-director-producer Christopher Duddy’s new autobiographical music documentary, ‘It’s So Easy and Other Lies.’ The film powerfully chronicles the battles that Guns N’ Roses founding member and bass player, Duff McKagan, has contended with throughout his life.

Guns N’ Roses, Re-loaded:
The legendary rock band is reuniting for the first time in over 20 years — but there’s still much room for speculation in what could turn out to be an even more major surprise reunion.
Coachella will bring together Axl Rose, Slash and Duff McKagan, but no word on remaining originals Izzy Stradlin and Steven Adler, nor which members from Guns N Roses’ latest lineup will be involved. Axl Rose and Slash have not reunited since 1993 so that reunion alone is huge news for hardcore fans, but rumbling rumors on social media have hinted that Stradlin and Adler could turn up in Indio, Calif.
The festival will serve as a kickoff of sorts for the upcoming Guns N’ Roses “reunion” tour, which the band has confirmed will span across 21 cities in North America with Axl Rose, Slash and McKagan — but yet again, no word on who else »

This is gonna blow your mind ... and ears. If you thought Guns N' Roses was coming back at less than full force ... listen to Axl Rose launch into "Welcome to the Jungle." Friday night's Troubador show was the first time the classic lineup of Axl, Slash, and Duff McKagan had played together since 1993, and by all accounts they killed it as they ripped through 17 songs. Closer? "Paradise City" ... of course. Paradise City! Guns N' Roses live at the Troubadour. »

[[tmz:video id="0_r89bxjzw"]] Guns N' Roses just started arriving at the famed Troubadour in West Hollywood for Friday night's epic show ... and they look like they mean business. We got video of Slash, Duff McKagan, Richard Fortus, and Dizzy Reed as they showed up at the Troubadour to a throng of screaming fans. The guys didn't sign autographs or pose for pics. Pretty clear they're focused on the concert. No sign of Axl Rose, but it's possible he »

Next to scoring a seat at the Dolby Theatre for the Oscars itself, Hollywood’s preferred station for consuming the Chris Rock-hosted telecast was Elton John‘s annual Oscar night viewing party and fundraiser. Along with a heated Oscar pool that Eric McCormack‘s wife won), guests included past Oscar winners such as Hilary Swank, current luminaries like Caitlyn Jenner and Lea Michele, and a heavy dose of musicians (Lana del Rey, Mariah Carey, Boy George, Steven Tyler, Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan and Dave Grohl).

Alongside heavy metal icon Alice Cooper and the rest of their supergroup, The Hollywood Vampires, joined by Aerosmith's Joe Perry and Guns N' Roses' Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum, marked their very first television performance in a big way.

He was a legend and I was proud to call him my friend." Additionally, the edgy group premiered their new »

After years of feuding, it looks as if the “old” Guns N’ Roses is back. Sort of. Even though they never really left… kind of. Look, they have a reunion coming up… partially, anyway.
Pretty much every music fan not living under a particularly remote rock or the dark side of the moon for the past few decades knows the story of Guns N’ Roses. The huge debut, the excesses, the controversies, the membership changes and the eventual, complete implosion of the classic-era line-up. Steven Adler, Izzy Stradlin, Gilby Clarke (Stradlin’s original replacement), Slash, Duff McKagan – by the early 90s, they were dropping like flies. Come the late 90s, only singer Axl Rose and keyboardist Dizzy Reed remained, alongside a new group of musicians including The Replacements bassist Tommy Stinson.
While the most recent formation been the bands most stable in decades, »
