Scott Weiland Reunion With Velvet Revolver? – Readers Poll
The infamous frontman has battled with many demons in the past, but it now looks as if Weiland is throwing himself back into music, hopefully coming from a better place. Not only did Stone Temple Pilots release a self-titled album in 2010, their first in nine years, but Weiland also put out two solo cover albums in 2011. It seems like Weiland might be trying to bring that new-found energy back into Velvet Revolver.
Although Velvet Revolver recently reunited with Weiland for a one-off performance at a benefit show, the singer now reveals that a more permanent reunion may be in the cards. “Yeah, I definitely would, some time,” Weiland tells Rolling Stone of possibly rejoining VR. “If Maynard [James Keenan] can do it with A Perfect Circle and Tool, then there’s no reason why I shouldn’t go and do it with both bands.” Wow, that’s a hell of a statement deserving a poll of its own; but we digress.
What do you think? Will the partial reunion of Guns N’ Roses at this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony open Velvet Revolver members Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum up to the idea of a VR reunion? Or much like with Axl Rose, is Weiland going to remain separate from the band for the foreseeable future? Give us your opinion in the poll below.
