More Signs of the Apocalypse: Duff McKagan Now a Financial Columnist for Playboy; Won't Shout Poppycock in a Crowded Bar


Guns 'n' Roses and Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan is now a financial columnist for Playboy

I think part of my mission statement for Playboy may be to perhaps try and shed some light and maybe even bring down some of the criminals on Wall St. Wouldn't that be cool? Maybe be a voice for the people- one that can't be bought (well, no one has ever actually tried to bribe me, but I'll let you know if they do!). The talking heads on the financial news networks also bother me. Always trying to be smarter than the next guy, using big and needless words and terminology so that they can watch themselves at home on their TiVo and gloat. Most of these shows do nothing more than a sort of "if it bleeds, it leads" type of sensationalism. This of course promotes only panic, stress, depression, and fear. Poppycock if you ask me. (As an aside; I would never actually use the word 'poppycock' in a bar room conversation but I couldn't wait any longer to use it. It IS a great word).

More here. Remember, past performances are no indicator of future results, so don't hold this particularly retarded interview against Duff:

I think I'll stick with taking financial advice from the Butthole Surfers.
