Duff McKagan is playing in Belfast on Thursday
A Belfast shop owner has managed to secure a rock royal warrant through a bit of walk in trade.
Chris Murray has owned the Apache store in Belfast for the last ten years, and for the last five they have been designing and making their own lines.
On Wednesday former Guns 'n' Roses bassist Duff McKagan called in.
"He came in liked a lot of what he saw, he bought a lot of stuff," he said.
It was not the first time that the men had met, they had crossed paths at the Download festival and the musician sought out the store in Belfast.
Duff is the bassist for hard rock band Velvet Revolver and is the lead vocalist and guitarist for his solo punk rock project Loaded.
Loaded are playing Belfast's Spring and Airbrake on Thursday, hence his appearance at the city store, with Chris and the staff being added to the guest list for the gig.
It is not the first time the store has been sported by musicians, the Foo Fighters Dave Grohl is understood to be in possession of a Functioning Alcoholic T-shirt made by Apache.
