The Daily Press (Timmins) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff Mck­a­gan is work­ing on his first solo al­bum with singer/song­writer Shooter Jen­nings as pro­ducer.

The rocker re­veals the “heart­break, anger, fear, con­fu­sion and di­vide,” he has ex­pe­ri­enced on tour in­spired him to write new songs for the project.

“I wrote a cou­ple of ar­ti­cles about his­tor­i­cal places I passed through on this last tour, and peo­ple kept ask­ing if that was go­ing to be the fo­cus of my next book,” he says, “but an un­seen and ir­re­press­ible force guided me to write lit­tle vi­gnettes of re­flec­tive prose... lit­tle in­stant-re­ac­tions.

“The heart­break, anger, fear, con­fu­sion and di­vide I have ex­pe­ri­enced over the last two and a half years of trav­el­ling this globe of ours co­erced th­ese words into songs that tell my truth, and one that I hope will spread and help us all.”
