Duff McKagan, the former bassist of rock legends Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver, has set up his own wealth management firm with musicians as the target market, and it is set to open in October, The Sunday Times (London) reveals.

In an interview with the publication, McKagan said the decision to open a wealth management business came after an unfortunate health-related incident in 1994 which inspired him to study Guns N’ Roses’ financial books, and enroll in a basic finance course.
