|Loaded's Duff McKagan and Geoff Reading were on KNAC.com yesterday.
Here are some of the things that were said:
Duff attends a university in Seattle. Before moving there he took some classes at a college in Santa Monica, CA. In order to attend the university, he had to write an essay. He asked his friend to help him write it. That friend is an English teacher and his name is Dave Dederer. He's probably best known as one of the members in the Presidents Of The United States of America.
Some of the professors at the university knows who Duff is, but he doesn't want any special treatment just because he was in a big rockband.
Loaded played at a venue right next door to the university. Duff didn't tell his class mates that they were playing. His class mates wouldn't have gotten in anyway since they aren't 21 yet. :-)
Geoff and Duff started playing together because they were going to work with Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees). For some reason that didn't work out. They found these two guys (Mike Squires and Jeff Rouse) and made a record with them. It was then released in Japan. Loaded are looking for a record deal in the US.
KNAC.com played three songs from Dark Days (Seattlehead, Superman, Then And Now).
The band is going to tour in Japan, Korea, Australia and Argentina.
