In addition to fronting one of the world’s hardest working bands, being a featured blogger for Huffington Post and writing for various international publications, DANKO JONES has found time to host a podcast that is growing in popularity.
In the latest episode of The Official Danko Jones Podcast, lead vocalist and guitarist Danko is joined by long-time friend Damian Abraham (Fucked Up) and none other than Duff McKagan (Guns ‘N Roses, Velvet Revolver, Loaded) to talk about punk rock, Black Flag reunions, GNR, X Japan, Russia and playing with Axl in London. Danko and Duff met while touring Australia together as part of the Soundwave Festival (which also included Metallica, Linkin Park, Blink 182, The Offspring and many more). In a recent column for Seattle Weekly Duff proclaims, “before Danko Jones came into my life, I missed him so bad”.
