Duff McKagan Defends Controversial Guns N’ Roses Songs

Before Duff McKagan’s new solo album Tenderness is released tomorrow, he reflected on some of Guns N’ Roses’ most controversial songs.

McKagan admitted that songs like “It’s So Easy” and “One in a Million” caused people to call him out. “I went on BBC’s Hard Talk for my first book, right?” he recalled. “I did Hard Talk, and it was the woman on there, and she was very nice to me in the green room. And the light goes on the camera, and she goes, ‘So: Turn around, bitch, I’ve got a use for you. You wrote that lyric. How do you explain that to your daughters?’”

McKagan defended his written lyrics, saying they were not meant to reflect the band’s beliefs and behaviors. He said, “If we saw that stuff going on around us, we didn’t allow it to happen around us. We were still good dudes.”
