Do you suppose history could have been even better if Kurt Cobain and Duff McKagan formed a band together?

I think his bass skills would better suit Kurt Cobain's music. :mellow:

No, but one thing is certain... his bass sound is fuckin' killer.

I don't think so... maybe the bass line to It's So Easy... but Sweet Child, Pretty Tied Up... nah, he's more classic rock even though he is, was, a punk

Both are extremely talented, both were from the Seattle area.

Do you think their playing styles can coexist? Nirvana had a lot of punk influence, and Duff used to play in a punk band as well.

I think it would be a completely irrelevant happening in music history.

Duff knew Bruce Pavitt, co-founder of Sub Pop, when they were just starting to become a label, so it's possible there would've been some sort of connecting going on when Nirvana started showing up at the Seattle clubs. I guess it would've worked because, even though Kurt wrote most of the songs, there's one or two that were credited to the band on Bleach, In Utero, and Nevermind.

Unlikely that they'd pair up, I really think had Duff stuck around in Seattle, he would've been the frontman/guitarist of his own band. He only picked up the bass to avoid competing with all the shredders in LA.

"Within three years, he succeeded in alienating his entire band and replaced them with session musicians. He got the full control he wanted and only had to turn Guns N’ Roses into a soulless revival act to do it."
