SEX PISTOLS bassist Glen Matlock joined DUFF MCKAGAN’S LOADED on stage last weekend at New York’s CBGB Festival to help commemorate the history of one of underground music’s most hallowed institutions, CBGB. Like the former GUNS N’ ROSES and current VELVET REVOLVER bassist, Matlock played guitar for a version of THE STOOGES‘ “I Wanna Be Your Dog”. Fan-filmed video footage of the performance can be seen below.
Duff talked about how special it was to him to be included in this CBGB Festival celebration and how he played the original club with GUNS N’ ROSES back in 1987.
“Without CBGB allowing [underground] bands to play,” Duff said during the show, “it’s arguable whether bands like METALLICA and GUNS N’ ROSES would exist.”
