EPISODE FOUR -

tHE dRUNK fUX!

Guns N’ Roses' off-shoot The Drunk Fux is discussed. This group had an ever changing lineup, and could feature friends and musicians from other bands. These chance jams would often lead to other collaborations. Also examined is the behavior that inspired the name. They were drunk fucks for sure, and that fact alone earned them notoriety.

PLUS – annoying Slash at the Don’t Cry video shoot, hard drugs with Steven Adler & being dissed by Duff!
