“And the one that I’m most excited about is this record called ‘The Living,’ which is Duff McKagan’s songwriting in 1982, the band called The Living, and this record is the coolest punk-rock blast from the past, 1982, before it all struck here.”

“It really shows you how ahead of his time Duff McKagan was and how he’s probably the centerpiece of Seattle sound in terms of really influencing the people that ended up getting a lot of credit for it, but Duff was up here making it happen before he went to Los Angeles to make Guns N’ Roses happen.”
