In a new interview with, Duff McKagan named Prince as his ultimate dream collaboration. "I'd love to play with Prince," McKagain said. "He's probably the biggest musical influence all around for me."

The former Guns N' Roses and current Loaded and Velvet Revolver bassist revealed that he once met the Minneapolis funk-rock legend, but his nerves got the best of him. "I got to meet him one time, but I was so f---ing tongue-tied that I didn't know what to say. But to be able to play on a song or something like that would be pretty bad a--, just on a personal level."

Duff McKagan's Loaded just released 'The Taking,' the quartet's third studio album.
