Duff McKagan’s Loaded Rolling Out ‘The Taking’ Film in 10 Vignettes
Duff McKagan is taking a little different approach to promoting ‘The Taking’ album, as he’s got a full-length film that goes along with the music. McKagan and his band Loaded intend to show off the new movie in a series of 10 vignettes that will roll out on the band’s YouTube page.
The first episode has just gone online and can be seen below. More episodes will follow every Tuesday at the site through Jan. 1, 2013. In the first episode, we get to see McKagan and his band play the new track ‘Executioner’s Song,’ followed by a portion of a day in the life of the group. The singer-bassist is up at the crack of dawn, hanging out by the sea, plotting a band meeting and we get to see him waking all of his bandmates up for what could be one of their most important shows to date.
Over the course of the ten episodes, we get to see not only his bandmates — Mike Squires, Jeff Rouse, and Isaac Carpenter — but also some of McKagan’s musical pals like Alice in Chains‘ Jerry Cantrell and Sean Kinney, Guns N’ Roses‘ Gilby Clarke, the Sex Pistols‘ Steve Jones, ZZ Top‘s Billy F. Gibbons, and Motorhead‘s Lemmy Kilmister.
The movie portion of ‘The Taking’ comes from Black Dahlia Films in association with Eagle Rock Entertainment.
So be sure to tune in each Tuesday to the YouTube Channel for Duff McKagan’s Loaded ‘The Taking’ to catch a new scene from the movie. ‘The Taking’ album is out now.
