Duff McKagan Comments On Sinus Surgery
December 17, 2010
Former Guns N’ Roses star Duff McKagan has undergone sinus surgery to remove scar tissue which built up during years of cocaine abuse.
The Velvet Revolver rocker – who turned his back on substance abuse in the mid-1990s – checked into a hospital this month for a mystery operation, prompting some gossips to suggest the musician was once again taking drugs.
McKagan has now spoken out to dismiss rumors of a relapse and he’s revealed the procedure was necessary to repair the damage caused by his battle with illegal substances.
In a Twitter post Duff says, “Thax 4 the well wishes on my sinus surgery, all went great. This is not from cocaine relapse (was reported somewhere). Just old scar tissue.”
