I've Been Playing Sex Pistols, the Ramones, and Zodiac MidwarpBy Duff McKagan, Monday, Feb. 22 2010
Next week I will be playing a show in Phoenix with Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols. He is probably my all-time favorite guy to play with, and, really, just to hang out and joke around with and get wisdom from. Here is a short list of some of the songs that I have had to learn this week for that show.Zodiac Mindwarp
, "Prime Mover"
: Does anyone remember this band? In 1988 and on our first-ever headlining tour, GN'R took Zodiac out as our opener. A great fucking rock band from the UK. Check them out.Sex Pistols
, "Pretty Vacant"
: Yes, I get to play a Sex Pistols song with, well, a Pistol. Steve Jones wrote the most classic guitar riffs that really informed a generation or two of rock following Never Mind the Bollocks.Ramones
, "Blitzkrieg Bop"
: I can't believe that I have yet to mention the Ramones in my writings yet. Kick ass. Kick butt. Loud and fast!http://blogs.seattleweekly.com/reverb/2010/02/ive_been_playing_sex_pistols_t.php
