"Rock bassist" isn't exactly the most financially stable career, but Duff McKagan has proven an exception to the rule -- not only by virtue of his membership in major bands like Guns 'N' Roses and Velvet Revolver, but also because of the dollar sense he picked up when he enrolled in college later in life.
After a few decades on the road, Duff McKagan has learned a thing or two about how to keep people from going crazy when they're stuck with each other for extended periods of time. The former Guns N' Roses bassist shared a bit of that wisdom in his latest column for the Seattle Weekly, titled 'Top 12 Tour Bus Rules and No-Nos.'

Amongst the dozen or so guitarists, Pearl Jam's Mike McCready left the biggest impression, according to reviews and confirmed in the below video of him playing 'Voodoo Child' with former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan.
Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan writes a weekly column for the Seattle Weekly, and last week he revealed that the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001 threw him into a deep depression. McKagan said he had wondered why others just couldn't "snap out of it" before 9/11 happened.
