Even if you didn’t know it existed, the CBGB Music & Film Festival Conference will have Velvet Revolver and Guns N’ Roses alum, Duff McKagan, doing the keynote address.

McKagan is the perfect person to impart his knowledge on a group of rock acolytes. The veteran rocker has a column in the Seattle Weekly, has written books, and has founded a wealth management firm called Meridian Rock, all while still playing in side project supergroup Walking Papers.

McKagan not only made his name in those multiplatinum groups, he also fronts his own group Duff McKagan’s Loaded, is a member of the supergroup Walking Papers, is a noted online columnist, and is the founder of the wealth management firm Meridian Rock.

The CBGB Music & Film Festival will take place in New York and its boroughs in the middle of October. Get more info at  http://cbgb.com.
