Rockstars Say The Funniest Things

You’re guaranteed to hear some juicy tales when Duff McKagan, Scott Ian and Chris Jericho take the stage this fall in the debut of the spoken word performance series “Rockstars Say The Funniest Things.”

Presented by Mean Fiddler and TKO, the three-part series takes place at London’s Relentless Garage with each of the stars getting one night to share some of the best stories they’ve collected during their careers.

McKagan starts things off Oct. 23 with his show, “It’s So Easy: A Punk’s Review.” The Loaded frontman, Velvet Revolver member and former Guns N’Roses bassist plans to share words and music from his autobiography “It’s So Easy (and other lies)” in addition to playing some acoustic tracks and taking part in a Q&A with the audience. Oh, and for the record, Duff hates the term “rockstar” and prefers the term “rock dude.”

Ian should have plenty to talk about during his spoken word performance Nov. 4. In addition to playing guitar for Anthrax, as well as bands including Stormtroopers of Death and The Damned Things, Ian hosted VH1’s “The Rock Show” and interviewed acts such as Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth, Stone Temple Pilots and Tenacious D.

“This is something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time,” Ian sad. “I’ve been traveling the world in the company of and hanging out with the greatest people on the planet for 31 years and I’ve got tales to tell.” 

WWE Champion and Fozzy frontman Jericho will get his night to tell all Nov. 25, with a mix of wrestling and rock ‘n’ stories. He could also discuss his time in film and comic theatre.

“I’m really stoked to do my first spoken word performance in my second home of England … home of bangers and mash, William and Kate and One Direction,” Jericho said. “Rest assured I will be discussing none of these topics, however sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll will be addressed!! See you soon …”
