Duff McKagan has premiered a new trailer for his autobiographical documentary, It’s So Easy and Other Lies.

The film combines animation, interviews and live footage of the Gun N’ Roses bassist’s life and career.

“I put an ad in the Recycler, and in walked this six-foot-plus guy in a red-and-black, full-length trench coat,” says Slash in the trailer. Adds McKagan: “I walked in, looked at the first booth on the left and saw all this hair.”

“Based on his New York Times best-selling memoir and featuring exclusive archival footage, this authorized music documentary chronicles the incredible life of Duff McKagan – founding member and bass player for Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver and other bands,” reads the official synopsis. “While Guns N’ Roses became the ultimate icons of sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, causing pandemonium in their wake, the lifestyle caught up with Duff, leaving him close to death. Follow Duff’s journey through interviews with many of the people who took this wild ride, including a constellation of rock stars who rose to fame alongside him, and the people who inspired him to overcome his addictions and transform his life.”

The reunited core of the original Guns N’ Roses plays CenturyLink Field in Seattle on August 12.
