Guns N’ Roses fans at last night’s (Dec. 16) concert in Seattle got quite a surprise when former bassist Duff McKagan joined the current incarnation of the band for a run-through of the ‘Use Your Illusion’-era single ‘You Could Be Mine.’ Duff’s band Loaded opened the GN’R show at the Key Arena in Duff’s hometown of Seattle and are scheduled to support another one tonight at the Pacific Coliseum in Vancouver, Canada.
A slew of big time rock ‘n’ rollers and other high-profile fans have sent in video testimonials to mark Metallica‘s 30th anniversary, which the band celebrated last week with a four-night stand of concerts at the Fillmore Theater in their hometown of San Francisco.
