Duff McKagan Knows How to Handle Hecklers
Don't you just hate it when you're trying to have a book signing and then some dude that's completely nutter butters tries to crash the party?
That's what happened last Friday at the Duff McKagan signing for his new memoir entitled, It's So Easy: And Other Lies. The video pretty much illustrates how much a douche this guy was being, but some background information is needed to fully understand what's going on here.
The audience member asks the following questions:"Was he depressed on the airline?" and "Was he despondent? Was he in despair?"
He's referring to Nirvana's frontman, Kurt Cobain. Why he's asking McKagan about this is because he's considered to be one of the last people to actually talk to the guy before he died, specifically, in the first class section of a flight going from L.A. to Seattle. Cobain had just left a rehab facility and the two musicians had some dialogue on the plane. A few days later, Cobain's body was found in his Seattle home.
Back to the incident. The questions the guy is trying to ask McKagan aren't out of line, in my opinion. The problem is the way he went about it, almost as if he were trying to put McKagan on the spot by approaching the stage with a handheld video camera. It's obvious he was trying to rattle the guy (and possibly get some embarrassing footage), so I commend McKagan for staying cool for as long as he did.
Then there's this little gem of dialogue: "Get your hands off me before I knock your ass down, motherfucker!"
McKagan lays the hammer down: "Get the fuck out of here, motherfucker!"
And the crowd goes wild.
Check out the video and let us know how you think McKagan handled this one.
Apologies for the quality and angle. It's the best footage we could find.
