Born and raised in Seattle, Duff McKagan fell in love with the city’s music scene at an early age, but left for Los Angeles in 1984 to pursue bigger dreams. It was there that he answered an ad looking for a bassist, written by someone named ‘Slash’. Guns n’ Roses was formed, and the rest is history. As the media and fame rapidly consumed the band, their success skyrocketed out of control, leaving McKagan overwhelmed and disillusioned. Based on his NY Times best-selling memoir, “It’s So Easy and Other Lies,” this ultimate rock-doc is filled with wall-to-wall music, animated sequences, and never-before-seen archival footage chronicling not only McKagan’s time with Guns n’ Roses, but his experiences with early Seattle bands in the late ’70s and early ’80s rock scene. A beautiful and emotional authorized documentary, It’s So Easy and Other Lies traces the life and career of the Guns n’ Roses musician, from his humble beginnings to the heights, excess, and survival of his super stardom.
