The documentary uses archival concert footage and interviews to track McKagan along his journey from humble origins in Seattle to the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame. While the film’s poster deliberately resembles a wild and vintage concert poster, the “Live at the Moore” tag it promises actually alludes to the Seattle location of the book reading in which McKagan speaks of his lucky path to sobriety, survival and redemption.

A new poster for the music documentary ‘It’s So Easy and Other Lies’ offers an exclusive look at the turbulent life of a burgeoning rock star. The film is based on the autobiography of Duff McKagan, one of the founding members of legendary rock band Guns N’ Roses, who battled through the traditional elements of rock n’ roll stardom, sex, drugs, fortune and fame.
The official synopsis reads as follows: “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. While Guns N’ Roses became the ultimate icons of Sex, Drugs and Rock and 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.”
