Duff McKagan Performs ‘You Could Be Mine’ With Guns N’ Roses

At last night’s Guns N’ Roses show (Dec. 16) at the Key Arena in Seattle, ex-GN’R bassist Duff McKagan hopped on stage to perform with his former band and its current lineup. Fans were likely expecting such a cameo, since McKagan’s band Loaded opened for GN’R and will do so again tonight (Dec. 17) at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, British Columbia. Perhaps Canadian fans will be treated to the same reunion of sorts. With the band’s loyal contingent of fans hoping for a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame reunion this April, seeing McKagan perform with Axl Rose again is hopefully a harbinger of things to come in 2012.

Nikki Sixx Calls 12-Year-Old Girl Who Used Sixx: A.M. Music in Anti-Bullying Video

The digital age is certainly narrowing the gap between artists and their fans, as well as creating ways for people to communicate their emotions to the world. Motley Crue bassist Nikki Sixx was moved by one such display and reached out to a little girl because of it. 12-year-old Chloe McCarty of Blaine, Minn., used his band Sixx: A.M.‘s song ‘Skin’ in a video where she revealed she has a mental disorder called trichotillomania, which causes her to pull out her hair, and as a result, be bullied by her classmates. A simple, expressive video garnered national attention for McCarty, her disorder and the need to be sensitive to others suffering from such conditions.

Manson wasn’t even on stage for two minutes before he began speaking about, uh, “entertaining” two girls at once and reverse erectile dysfunction. He was also sipping a glass of absinthe; he has his own brand of the liquor, called “Mansinthe.” Never a dull or non-subversive moment with Marilyn Manson.
