"First and foremost, I'm a music fan and a musician," said McKagan. "And nuTsie is all about the music. Getting your own music anywhere, anytime. Finding new songs that you like, which is a rush for me even after all these years of listening to and playing music."

"I've seen a lot go down over the years with G N' R and now Velvet Revolver," added McKagan. "Working with nuTsie is a great opportunity to put my experience to work for one of the most viable new digital music models. This is also a chance for me personally to get more active in the business world, which is one of my long-term personal goals."

McKagan's addition bolsters nuTsie's already considerable credibility as a digital music company with real connections to music. The company previously announced the addition of Dave Dederer, of the Grammy-nominated and platinum-selling band The Presidents of the United States of America, to its advisory board and then to its executive staff.
