Duff McKagan has indeed been in many bands! Throughout his early career,
Michael McKagan has tried his hands at Guitar, Drums, and Bass with more than
30 bands before landing with Guns n' Roses. There he would begin a career with Guns n' Roses that would span
a decade. With the progressive downfall of the band however, and a near-death run in from excessive alcohol abuse, Duff cleaned
up his life, took to the martial arts, especially kickboxing, and decided not to continue his career with the band. Duff
is now part of a band called Loaded which toured in a few US cities in 2001.

in the band called "Velvet Revolver".
