We reported first on former Guns’ N’Roses bassist and writer Duff McKagan being employed as Faith No More‘s Gimp at their second Wiltern show in Los Angeles last month.
And the show host also revealed that Faith No More will be on Huff Post Live tomorrow!
Today, he spoke to Huff Post live about his new book but how he became The Gimp also came up. He said:
“Their ‘Gimp’ guy got stuck in traffic or something — something like that — and Patton asked if I’d be the ‘Gimp.’ And I’d just gotten to the gig, me and another friend. I’m wearing all black, and everybody else was wearing white. ‘Cause they play in white, and everybody backstage, their crew, they all have white on. The guy I came with, Jerry Cantrell [Alice in Chains], he wore white, because he had gone to the show the night before. I picked him up, [and I said], ‘What are you doing wearing all white?’ He’s, like, ‘Faith No More white, dude.’ [I was, like], ‘Oh, yeah, I blew it.’ But being the only guy dressed in black, I was the instant ‘Gimp.'”
