In 1984, at the age of 20, Duff McKagan left his native Seattle - partly to pursue music, but mainly to get away from a host of heroin overdoses then-decimating his closest group of friends in the local punk scene. In LA only a few weeks and still living in his car, he answered a want ad for a bass player placed by someone who identified himself only as "Slash." Soon after, the most dangerous band in the world was born. Guns N' Roses went on to sell more than 100 million albums worldwide. In It's So Easy, Duff recounts Guns' unlikely trajectory to a string of multiplatinum albums, sold-out stadium concerts, and global acclaim. But that kind of glory can take its toll, and it did - ultimately - on Duff, as well as on the band itself. As Guns began to splinter, Duff felt that he himself was done, too. But his near death as a direct result of alcoholism proved to be his watershed, the turning point that sent him on a unique path to sobriety and the unexpected choices he has made for himself since. In a voice that is as honest as it is indelibly his own, Duff - one of rock's smartest and most articulate personalities - takes fans on a harrowing journey through the dark heart of one of the most notorious bands in rock and roll history and out the other side.

interesting for long time fans
I used to be a hardcore gnr fan when I was young. back in the days i consumed all i could about gnfnr. of course i was heartbroken for years and years. i almlst couldnt stand it... now that at least the triad of axl, duff n slash is back in action, this audiobook has been a fresh setback and update for me, more than just a time machine, i am surprised about some turns and facts and i definitely enjoyed every chapter. in the end it seems there is still some chapters missing to finish the story. time will tell.

unglaublich unterhaltsam und fesselnd!
Duff erzählt sehr interessant und detailliert seine Geschichte. von seinen Anfängen bis zum jetzt. Erst ungefiltert ehrlich und schont weder such noch seine Probanden. sehr kurzweilig!
