If you'd like to put your funds in the hands of a guy whose band's debut album was "Appetite for Destruction," now's your chance. Former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan, who did a stint in business school and has since penned financial advice columns for publications including Playboy and the New York Times, is now helming a wealth management firm, specializing in helping musicians sort out their finances. He explains to the Post how the interest developed.


"When I first got out of the hospital, I was just trying to stay sober, so I had to fill my time. One of the things I did was to go through my financial statements, and I couldn't figure them out," he said.


It's a little tough to figure out whether McKagan might be generally bullish or bearish. On the one hand: "Welcome to the jungle. It gets worse here everyday." On the other: "And when you're high, you never ever want to come down." We'll assume that means he'll strive for a relatively diversified portfolio.
