Rock bassist Duff McKagan is gearing up to release his new book, How To Be A Man (and Other Illusions), next week.

McKagan released an official memoir back in 2011, but this new book is different. As he told Rolling Stone, it’s more of a book of observations and anecdotes he’s learned through a life on the road:

“It’s certainly not an instructional, how-to book,” McKagan, 51, tells Rolling Stone. “It’s an observational study and hopefully some humor in there. The ‘Other Illusions’ [subtitle] should be the headline.”

A three-song E.P. will also be released in conjunction with the book. The title track is a collaboration with his former Guns n’ Roses band mate Izzy Stradlin and Alice in Chains songwriter/guitarist Jerry Cantrell. Take a listen to the acoustic tune below:
