Duff Mckagan Tempted By Microsoft
Band Photo: Velvet Revolver (?)
In an interview with Ireland's Belfast Telegraph, bassist Duff Mckagan (Velvet Revolver/ex-Guns N' Roses) revealed that in 1998, after the breakup of Guns 'N' Roses, he headed back to school. The Velvet Revolver bassist and his wife, Susan, had relocated to Seattle, and that's where he earned a degree in finance.
"After I finished rehab, I needed to find ways to fill my time, so I started going through the financial statements of Guns from the previous four years. I couldn't make sense of them, so I thought it might be a good idea to go back to school and learn how it all worked."
After McKagan earned his finance degree, Microsoft offered him a job. The bassist admits he was tempted. "Sure I was. You always want what you don't have, and I thought that would be very interesting. But then I got another opportunity, to be in a killer band with a bunch of old friends. In the end, it was no contest."
