VIDEO: Duff McKagan and Krist Novoselic perform Guns N’ Roses classic

Duff McKagan and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic teamed up to perform a stripped-down version of the Guns N’ Roses classic, “Sweet Child O’ Mine”, in Seattle on Sunday.

With McKagan on bass and Novoselic on accordion, the pair teamed up to deliver an instrumental take on the 1998 US No. 1 hit at the city’s Neptune Theatre.

The former Guns N’ Roses bassist hosted the evening as a release party for his new book, “How To Be A Man (And Other Illusions)”, joining Novoselic for an extended interview/conversation while also holding a book signing for the attendees.

The book sees McKagan share wisdom he gained through his years with Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver to getting sober after a life of hard living, going on to a successful marriage and a balanced life as a musician and a father.

The newly-released book follows McKagan’s critically-acclaimed 2012 New York Times bestselling memoir, “It’s So Easy (And Other Lies).”
