Velvet Revolver have gone through a proverbial spinning of the cylinder as former vocalist Scott Weiland and current guitarist Slash have been sending completely opposite messages to fans. Just as Weiland insisted that he was once again a member of the band, the claims were swatted down by Slash.
Scott Weiland has been one of the most unpredictable frontmen in rock for the past two decades. In a new interview, he not only reveals that he hopes to release a new Stone Temple Pilots album, he also admits he would like to rejoin Velvet Revolver at some point down the road. It’s official, hell has frozen over.
The last time we heard anything new from Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland, he was walking around in a winter wonderland on his holiday disc ‘The Most Wonderful Time of the Year.’ He now returns to his rock roots with a new song penned for the soundtrack for the upcoming summer blockbuster movie ‘The Avengers.’
Four years after their acrimonious split, the members of Velvet Revolver reunited with lead singer Scott Weiland for a brief live set last night (Jan. 12) -- and now a message on the band's website is causing some to question whether Weiland could be back in the fold on a more permanent basis.
