VH1 Radio reports that Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, who recently announced that he will perform with the Seattle Symphony in January, will have a partner (or two) for the gig and one of 'em will be Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan.
"You know, I think I'm doing that gig with him," McKagan said to VH1. "I didn't even know that was announced yet. He had brought something up about it a couple months ago and I'm pretty tight with Mike. We've been good buddies since we were about 16 or so. So it might be him and I, and Barrett Martin of Screaming Trees, Mad Season and Walking Papers."
McCready x the Seattle Symphony sounds awesome. McCready x the Seattle Symphony x Duff McKagan sounds amazeballs.
