Duff McKagan was a surprise guest last night (February 9) at the Seattle stop on Slash’s solo tour with Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators.

The moment was captured in the fan-shot video below, which saw Conspirator member Todd Kerns taking on and crushing lead vocals on the Guns N’ Roses classic “Nightrain.”

It was a rare moment of a GN’R track making the setlist at a Slash solo show. The guitar icon told Ultimate Classic Rock in a recent interview, “I have to admit, I really missed playing the Guns material when this thing first started, so it was a great outlet for me,” he said. “But having gotten back with all my buddies in Guns, after a while I was like, ‘I don’t really need to do it with Myles and Company,’ so we don’t have any Guns songs in the set. That said, I sort of miss the occasional Velvet Revolver song. So I haven’t put any Velvet songs in the set as of yet, but I might at some point put one, at least, just for the fun of doing it.”
