Guns N’ Roses: Duff McKagan’s memoir being made into documentary

Duff McKagan’s 2011 autobiography, “It’s So Easy (And Other Lies)”, is being made into a full-length documentary feature film.

Written and directed by Christopher Duddy ("Cougar Club"), the documentary will feature exclusive rare archive footage of Duff’s early days with original Guns N’ Roses members Slash, Steven Adler, Izzy Stradlin and Axl Rose, as well as later members Gilby Clarke and Matt Sorum, and contemporaries Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Krist Novoselic (Nirvana), Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue) and much more.

The project began production this past March by filming one of Duff's book readings at the Moore Theatre in Seattle, and recent performances with his bands Walking Papers and Loaded. The film will contain rare archive footage from Marc Canter, who filmed all the early footage of Guns N’ Roses behind the scenes and performances, as well as an ultimate collector's soundtrack for the fans.

The worldwide distribution rights for “It’s So Easy (And Other Lies)” have been picked up by Vision Films. No planned release schedule has been revealed at this time.
