Rock supergroup Velvet Revolver has been struggling with lineup issues for quite some time now since parting with vocalist Scott Weiland. Conflicting stories on Weiland's place in the band have been prevalent for a year now, but Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash just made it public that the band is "very quietly" looking for a new singer.
While the remaining members of Velvet Revolver have been rocking out with their latest solo efforts, former vocalist Scott Weiland seems hopeful about the revival of the band and his potential return as the frontman of the currently defunct supergroup. In fact, he even suggests they are set to start writing new material.
Over the course of his illustrious career, Duff McKagan has been in a lot of bands -- and he touched on pretty much all of them during a recent interview with FasterLouder, looking back on his stints with Guns N' Roses and Neurotic Outsiders while looking ahead to his future with Loaded, as well as weighing in on where Velvet Revolver might be headed.
Slash recently stopped by the Howard Stern Show to promote his new album and ended up discussing Velvet Revolver singer Scott Weiland's "uncontrollable diva" behavior. The iconic guitarist also shared his love for Nirvana and offered his thoughts on the grunge era that gave birth to Weiland's career.
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.
