Guns ‘N Rose colliding Duff McKagan and his wife Susan Holmes is finally talking openly about their 22-year marriage’s biggest secret after marriage in 1999. Duff McKagan recently admitted in an interview that he could not get enough of Susan.
“With her, you can never have a terrible day. Instead, the bassist said she’d brighten your day if you have a bad one. He also mentioned how much he adores his wife and their wonderful life together. But, these days, it’s “ride or die,” as they say.
Who is Duff McKagan?
The American singer Michael Andrew “Duff” McKagan, better known by his stage name Duff “Rose,” was born on February 5, 1964. He played bass for the hard rock band Guns N’ Roses for twelve years, during which time he rose to recognition on a global scale in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Following their 2016 initiation into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, McKagan re-joined the group. McKagan created the short-lived ensemble Neurotic Outsiders, and Believe in Me, a solo album, was published (1993) during the close of his first run with Guns N’ Roses.
After leaving Guns N’ Roses in 1997, McKagan briefly reformed his previously successful Seattle punk band 10 Minute Warning before launching the still-active hard rock group Loaded, where he plays rhythm and lead guitar. He joined former Guns N’ Roses bandmates Slash and Matt Sorum in the supergroup Velvet Revolver from 2002 to 2008.
In 2010 with Jane’s Addiction, Alice in Chains in 2006, and Hollywood Vampires in 2016, he briefly shared the stage with them. He has also contributed to several short-lived bands, including Walking Papers and Levee Walkers, along with fellow Seattle locals Mike McCready (well-known for his work with Pearl Jam) and Barrett Martin (formerly of Screaming Trees). McKagan’s literary career is prosperous in addition to his musical one. He founded the asset management firm Meridian Rock.
