XLrator Media will release Guns N’ Roses founding member and bass player Duff McKagan’s autobiographical music documentary “It’s So Easy and Other Lies: Live at The Moore,” based on his New York Times best-selling memoir, in 50 cities beginning Thursday May 26, prior to its LA theatrical release on Friday, June 3.
Featuring exclusive archival footage, this authorized documentary chronicles Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-inductee McKagan’s meteoric rise to fame and fortune, his near-fatal struggles with alcohol and drug addiction, and his remarkable life transformation. The film features interviews with many of the people who took this wild ride, including a constellation of rock stars that rose to fame alongside him, and the people who inspired him to overcome his addictions. In a voice that is as honest as it is indelibly his own, Duff takes audiences on a harrowing journey through the dark heart of rock ‘n’ roll and out the other side.
The documentary was directed and produced by Christopher Duddy, produced by Daniel Zirilli and Steven G. Kaplan, and executive produced by Vision Films’ Lise Romanoff, Gato Scatena, Jordan Rosner, Hans Stangl, Birgit Stein and Kati Thomson. Evan Saxon did the theatrical booking.
