Duff McKagan created quite a stir at NAMM 2009. In appearances at both the RotoSound and Dunlop booths, the Velvet Revolver star drew huge crowds. Posters, photos, strings, guitar straps, body parts, you name it, McKagan was happy to sign them all.

At the end of a long day, McKagan sat down with MusicRadar for an exclusive video interview. We discussed a variety of topics, the most pressing being Velvet Revolver's ongoing search for a new singer.

McKagan smiled and hinted that the candidates have been narrowed down and that an announcement could be made very soon. And when the band is ready to name their new vocalist, MusicRadar will have the scoop.

Joe is a freelance journalist who has, over the past few decades, interviewed hundreds of guitarists for Guitar WorldGuitar PlayerMusicRadar and Classic Rock. He is also a former editor of Guitar World, contributing writer for Guitar Aficionado and VP of A&R for Island Records. He’s an enthusiastic guitarist, but he’s nowhere near the likes of the people he interviews. Surprisingly, his skills are more suited to the drums.
