Duff McKagan on Scott’s Benefit

On the Road. Again… – Seattle Music – Reverb Last Saturday night in Los Angeles, I was honored to take part in a benefit concert for Gutter Twins bassist Scott Ford at the Roxy Theater. He, like many of my musical brethren, goes through life without basic health insurance.

Scott got very sick this year, and was forced…

Summer’s Kiss Review – Doubtful Sounds

Doubtful Sounds | 3 Stars The Afghan Whigs were one of the exceptions to the rule for 90s rock. They were the dark horses that never quite fit into the Seattle sound or the indie slacker vibe of bands like Pavement. They worshipped at the altar of rock, soul and R’n’B and with Greg Dulli’s confessional singing and brutally naked lyrics they sidestepped major success while at the same time developing a loyal and dedicated fan-base. Summer’s Kiss is a labor of love, a tribute…

Summer’s Kiss Review – American Songwriter

3.5 Stars by Evan Schlansky The Afghan Whigs, for the uninducted, were sonic vampires before vampires were cool. A seminal ’90s band on the same label as Nirvana, superstardom eluded them. But during a time when Nine Inch Nails could have a pop hit with the noir-ish, depraved “Animal,” the dark-hearted Whigs were able to co-exist, and briefly thrive. Emotive guitars and spitfire drumming propped up self-lacerating lyrics that cut to the heart of modern relationships, delivered in frontman Greg Dulli’s inebriated yowl. “I’ve got…
