Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan‘s new documentary, It’s So Easy And Other Lies: Live At The Moore, will begin a limited theatrical run in U.S. theaters starting May 26th, according to Deadline. XLrator Media will present the film in 50 cities ahead of its arrival in Los Angeles on June 3rd. The film focuses on McKagan as he tells his life story in a live performance at Seattle’s famed Moore Theater in 2013.
- The Seattle appearance was part of a promotional tour by McKagan in support of his 2012 memoir of the same name, which debuted on the New York Times‘ Hardcover Nonfiction Best Sellers list at Number 17.
- McKagan’s first book and his second, How To Be A Man (And Other Illusions), chronicled not just McKagan’s life but the wisdom and experience he gained from his time with Guns to getting sober after a life of hard living to raising a family with his supermodel wife.
- McKagan told us not long ago what the best part of sobriety was: [“Waking up every day. Waking up and being able to have a cup of coffee and be aware of what’s going on around me and being comfortable in my own skin, and being curious about what’s gonna happen that day. Simply, just waking up is the best thing.”] SOUNDCUE (:17 OC: . . . the best thing.)
- The documentary’s release comes three weeks before the partially-reunited Guns N’ Roses will begin a summer stadium tour of North America at Ford Field in Detroit on June 23rd.
