Neurotic Outsiders

Broadcasting live on MTV, the Las Vegas branch of the Hard Rock Café ­arked its opening in March 1995 with a celebratory all-star concert featuring, among others, Duran Duran. More exciting than the concert was a potential musical project which resulted from the after-party, featuring members of Duran Duran, Guns N' Roses and the Sex Pistols, all of which were on extended hiatus.

Broadcasting live on MTV, the Las Vegas branch of the Hard Rock Café ­arked its opening in March 1995 with a celebratory all-star concert featuring, among others, Duran Duran. More exciting than the concert was a potential musical project which resulted from the after-party, featuring members of Duran Duran, Guns N' Roses and the Sex Pistols, all of which were on extended hiatus.

In September of the same year, a group calling themselves 'Neurotic Boy Outsiders' began to play various benefit shows, with the trio of Steve Jones (Sex Pistols), Duff McKagan (Guns N' Roses) and John Taylor (Duran Duran) taking vocal duties, with McKagan switching to guitar from his preferred bass, and Guns N' Roses member Matt Sorum taking up drums. They played a mixture of covers and a quickly developing set of original material.

In 1996 they embarked on a West Coast (of the USA) tour, changing their name to 'Neurotic Outsiders.' They also decided to put some of their original material down on record. Securing a deal with Madonna's Maverick Records, Neurotic Outsiders released their first and only self-titled album in September 1996, spawning the radio hits 'Angelina' and 'Jerk,' aswell as a notable Clash cover 'Janie Jones..

The band briefly toured North America and Europe before Sorum and McKagan returned to Guns N' Roses, while Jones and Taylor pursued solo projects. Theyr reunited for a short series of concerts in 1999 after Guns N' Roses' implosion, but it didn't last.

Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum have now joined up with Slash and Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland in another 'supergroup,' Velvet Revolver. They released their first album 'Contraband' in 2004, and are currently recording a second. Duran Duran reunited in 2001, releasing 'Astronaut' in 2004. Steve Jones currently presents his own radio show in LA, on which Duff is a regular guest. « hide
