The Garage, London
Featuring Scott Ian!
Tuesday 23rd October – Duff McKagan
Sunday 4th November – Scott Ian
Sunday 25th November – Chris Jericho
Mean Fiddler in association with TKO, proudly present three evenings of spoken word performances with members of Rock Royalty in the intimate setting of one of London’s rock institutions, The Garage. Duff McKagan, Scott Ian and Chris Jericho will, for one night, be live on stage like you’ve never seen them before as part of the series debut of Rockstars Say The Funniest Things.
With a whole evening dedicated to each rocker, the series opens as it means to go on with a man who needs no introduction; Duff McKagan*. After 12 years playing bass with Guns N’ Roses, the ongoing success from his band Loaded, and reuniting with former bandmates Slash and Matt Sorum in the supergroup, Velvet Revolver, Duff certainly has some stories to regale you with. On Tuesday 23rd October, McKagan presents ‘It’s So Easy: A Punk’s Review’ words and music from the book It’s So Easy (and other lies). As well as sharing memories from his musical journey, he will be playing some acoustic tracks and let the audience delve deeper into this life with a Q&A.
*Duff asks that we put an * by his name as he hates the term “Rockstar”, he prefers “rock dude” or something similar.
For the second instalment on Sunday 4th November, RSTFT brings an exclusive UK only Spoken Word performance from Scott Ian. The thrash metal hero best known for his raging rhythm guitar with the mighty Anthrax, Ian is also renowned for his stint hosting the VH1 Rock Show and interviewing some of all time greats including Ozzy Osbourne, Megadeth, Stone Temple Pilots and Tenacious D.
On his inclusion in the line up, Scott Ian said; “This is something I’ve wanted to do for a very long time. I’ve been travelling the world in the company of and hanging out with the greatest people on the planet for 31 years and I’ve got to tales to tell.”
The third musketeer joining this motley crew is frontman for heavy metal outfit Fozzy and World Wrestling legend, Chris Jericho. Jericho is one of the greatest showmen of the modern era, and on Sunday 25th November be prepared for uncensored tales from the roads travelled as both WWE Champion and with his band. As author of worldwide best selling autobiographies, time spent acting in film and in comic theatre, his 23 year career is access all areas for one night only.
Chris commented; “I’m really stoked to do my first spoken word performance in my second home of England…home of bangers and mash, William and Kate and One Direction. Rest assured I will be discussing none of these topics, however sex, drugs and rock n roll will be addressed!! See you soon…”
Whether you’re a rock fan or wrestling junkie, RSTFT is a must for anyone who loves to escape with a good story, as these three icons take to the stage for a no holds barred account of their experiences.
