Fred Armisen has formed a supergroup with members of Guns N’ Roses, The Stray Cats, The Damned, The Living End, and The Alarm. Dead Men Walking is composed of Guns’ Duff McKagan, The Cats’ Slim Jim Phantom, Mike Peters of The Alarm, The Living End’s Chris Cheney, and The Damned’s Captain Sensible, as well as Armisen. The group will only play one show—September 14 at the Troubadour in Los Angeles— and more special guests are promised, though it’s anyone’s guess as to what musicians, comedians, or actors those guests might be. The group plans to perform a set of original songs and “old favorites,” and tickets, priced at a very reasonable $15, go on sale this Friday.
