Guns N’ Roses Member Used Cocaine With Iggy Pop?


Iggy Pop recently discussed what it was like working with the band that seems to be making headlines for all the wrong reasons lately, Guns N’ Roses. In the world of music, Iggy is a legitimate legend – and that is on an international level. Let’s see what Iggy has to say about Guns N’ Roses.

As per Louder Sound, Duff McKagan is one of the featured players on Iggy Pop’s just-released Every Loser album, and in a new interview in the new issue of Classic Rock, the Godfather of Punk recalls the beginnings of his long-standing friendship with Guns N’ Roses’ bassist.

“I’ve known Duff since he was in his early twenties,” Pop tells Classic Rock’s Ian Fortnam. “Both he and Slash worked on [Iggy’s 1990 album] Brick By Brick. I used to go over to Duff’s house – at the time he was trying to decide between the Playboy model he was dating and the weather girl – and rehearse. One time Slash was three hours late because, he said, ‘I’m sorry but my snake escaped into the wall’.”

Recalling the trio’s somewhat unorthodox methods, Pop says, “Before we set to work they said: “We’ll have to have a discussion before we start.” So they arrived with a gallon of vodka and a bowl of blow and, as a result of living through that, I got to know them pretty well.”

Pop’s 19th solo album, Every Loser is reviewed in the new issue of Classic Rock, with Ian Fortnam calling it “a stone-cold classic”, noting “Every Loser captures an Iggy Pop never more ready to be himself.”
