Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan spoke with Time Off magazine about the band’s latest album ‘Libertad’, and that long awaited record from his former band, Guns N’ Roses. “Honestly, you probably know more about it than I do – I’d bet money that you do,” McKagan said of Axl Rose’s decade plus in the making ‘Chinese Democracy’. “That was the record we started working on in 1994, but that band was so splintered at that point that nothing got started. It [Guns N’ Roses] was too big. I think that’s what happened – we got too big and imploded. That’s what’s great about Velvet Revolver – we have success but it’s not too big. It’s manageable.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
