Video: DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED Plays First Show In Two Years

DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED — the band led by VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES bassist Duff McKagan — played its first show in two years on March 3 at Slim's Last Chance in Seattle. The concert was a benefit event for DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED guitarist Mike Squires's mother, who is battling cancer. Video footage of the performance can be seen below.

McKagan will perform with two other former GUNS N' ROSES members, Slash and Gilby Clarke, this coming Saturday, March 7, when DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED shares the stage in Buenos Aires, Argentina with SLASH FEATURING MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS and Clarke's solo band.

DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED's latest album, "The Taking", sold 2,300 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 12 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200. The group's previous album, "Sick", opened with around 1,400 units back in April 2009 to debut at No. 43 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart.

Released in April 2011 via Eagle Rock Entertainment, "The Taking" was recorded at a Seattle-area studio with veteran rock producer Terry Date (SOUNDGARDEN, PANTERA, DEFTONES).
