Duff McKagan has been a fan of the "Purple Rain" hitmaker for many years and cites him as his "biggest musical influence".
Duff McKagan reveals he once met his idol, but was too "tongue-tied" to talk to him - let alone ask about work opportunities.
He tells TheSunsetStrip.com,"I'd love to play with Prince... Prince is the guy, probably the biggest musical influence all around for me, and I got to meet him one time, but I was so f**king tongue tied that I did Guns N' Roses know what to say... But to be able to play on a song or something like that; that would be pretty bad a**, just on a personal level."
