Duff talks about Nirvana box set + Buckethead to play NYC
VELVET REVOLVER's Duff McKagan, who watched the formation of NIRVANA as a Seattle native, told Launch Radio Networks that the new NIRVANA box set, "With The Lights Out", is going to provide a payday for more than just the members of the band. According to McKagan, other musicians who are on the box set such as former members of the band and original SCREAMING TREES drummer Mark Pickerel will be seeing royalty payments, which will help some of them quite a bit. "You know, there's some guys who got cut in on this," Duff said. "The original drummer from SCREAMING TREES, for example he owns a record store, he lives in a little, little town in eastern Washington. He's just about to go under, (and) some lawyer called him and said, 'Well, you know, you're getting such-and-such percentage of this record,' and it's gonna change his life. These guys have been musicians all their lives, and never made a dime. That alone is a great aspect of this box set coming out."

If your idea of a great New Year's Eve includes monsters, Japanimation and a visit from the chicken-bucket-wearing ex-guitarist of Guns N' Roses, New York's Irving Plaza is the place to be. Funk/electronica band Particle will headline an evening that includes appearances by monster-mayhem wrestling group Kaiju Big Battel, Buckethead and Japanese punk group Peelander-Z.
