Duff Beer Pennant

“When Guns N’ Roses began to break

into the public consciousness, I was known as a big drinker,” writes McKagan in the book. “In 1988, MTV aired a concert in which Axl introduced me — as usual — as Duff “The King of Beers” McKagan. Soon after a production company working on a new animated series called me to ask if they could use the name “Duff” for a brand of beer in the show.”

“I laughed and said of course, no problem,” McKagan continues. “The whole thing sounded like a low-rent art project or something — I mean, who made cartoons for adults? Little did I know that the show would become ‘The Simpsons’ and that within a few years I would start to see Duff Beer glasses and gear everywhere we toured.”
