Duff McKagen, former¬†Guns N’ Roses and current Velvet Revolver bassist (and also former drummer of The Fastbacks – betcha didn’t know that) has been hired as a financial columnist for Playboy.

This just in: Motley Crue has announced that Alan Greenspan is their new drummer.


You know, it makes a certain amount of sense. Unlike the annoying talking heads on television, Duff actually has real world experience making, then losing, then making millions. He’s actually gone to school for this (at Santa Monica Community College – where I once took a French class for all of two weeks. I’m not sure why). Plus Duff has been sober for more than a decade, which you may or may not be able to say about your current financial advisor. So he’s clear-headed. And being an L.A. rock star, I’m pretty positive he knows his way around the mansion.

So what the hell – maybe we should all listen to Duff. It’s not like he can make things worse.
