Duff McKagan, having carved out a place in rock 'n roll history, requires no lengthy introduction. His former band, Guns 'n Roses, and current supergroup, Velvet Revolver, have traveled the world selling millions of records.
Loaded was formed in 1999 and has morphed several times, releasing two albums: 1999's "Live Episode" album and 2001's "Dark Days". To celebrate the official digital re-release of the "Dark Days" album, the band has hand-selected a live performance to accompany this download.
This live recording, captured at Tokyo's Famous Tower Records in Shibuya, features most of the songs from the "Dark Days" album as well as inspired covers of The Stooges and The Misfits.
The current line-up of Loaded features drummer Geoff Reading (New American Shame, Green Apple Quickstep), bassist Jeff Rouse and guitarist Mike Squires (both formerly of Alien Crime Syndicate). This tight-knit group of rock 'n roll brothers brings their high-energy to every stage, from Seattle's Sunset Tavern to Tokyo's NK Hall.
Loaded is currently working on a new, yet-to-be-titled, studio album to be release in the Summer of '08 with tours worldwide to follow.
