No, it wasn’t Kim Kardashian, but she looks great holding a beer. The celebrity who inspired Homer Simpson to crack open thousands of ice cold Duff’s Beer through the years, has confirmed it was him, and his drinking reputation, that etched his place in beer history. Who is it?
Former Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan. He says that since the late ’80s, he was known as Duff “The King of Beers” McKagan. In a recent interview he said, ”Our management for GN’R got a fax but it was from like an adult cartoon. Now there wasn’t any adult cartoons in 1988. There just wasn’t and like, ‘an adult cartoon?’ They want to use your name as the name of the beer on the thing and they just want your blessing. It’s not like I own the name Duff, I should’ve trademarked that thing on up if I would’ve known but yeah, that think took off, that Simpsons deal.”
