You’ve Never Heard Guns N’ Roses Until You’ve Heard Them Played On The Accordion

Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan has been doing the rounds to promote his new book How to Be A Man. Sunday night, at the book’s release party in Seattle Neptune Theatre, McKagan and Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic played one of the most unique renditions of the Guns N’ Roses classic “Sweet Child O’ Mine” you’ve ever heard, with Novoselic on the accordion and McKagan joining him on bass. But the performance is meaningful for another reason: Guns N’ Roses and Nirvana had infamous beef in the early ’90s, mostly due to their equally volatile lead singers.

It’s the most impressive performance of this rock classic since perfection was obtained on Guitar Hero.

McKagan is accompanying his book release with a three-song EP under the same title. The project addresses McKagan’s wild ride through his rock n roll journey, including his drug abuse and Guns N’ Roses’ recent reunion.
