Duff McKagan is the legendary bass player for VELVET REVOLVER and formerly GUNS N’ ROSES. His raw punk approach and melodic riffs lay the foundation of some of the most influential songs of all time.

In his IMV “Behind the Player” DVD, Duff gives an intimate behind-the scenes look at his life as a professional musician including rare photos and video footage.

Duff then gives in-depth lessons for how to play “Sltiher” and “Set Me Free” by Velvet Revolver on bass and jams the tracks with Janes Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins.

VIDEO TAB shows exactly how Duff plays the two tracks. The video-game-style animated tablature is similar to GuitarHero(™), but shows how to play the tracks for real.

Other IMV “Behind the Player” titles include: KoRn guitarist Munky; Rob Zombie guitarits John 5; Atreyu guitarist Dan Jacobs; Tim Skold, former guitarist and bassist for Marilyn Manson; Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan; Alice in Chains bassist Mike Inez; KoRn bassist Fieldy; Slipknot bassist Paul Gray; Ozzie Osbourne bassist Blasko; Godsmack bassist Robbie Merrill; Rob Zombie drummer Tommy Clufetos; Jane’s Addiction and Porno for Pyros drummer Stephen Perkins; Godsmack drummer Shannon Larkin; and guitar legend George Lynch

The producers of the IMV series donate $.25 from the sale of each DVD to Little Kids Rock (www.littlekidsrock.org), an organization that gets instruments in the hands of underprivileged kids.
