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.
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.
According to Blabbermouth, the former VR lead singer will perform with his ex mates for a good cause – the 'Love You Madly: A Concert for John O'Brien' benefit show, which is set to take place Thursday, Jan. 12, at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, Calif. In addition, Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello will appear on the bill along with Sheryl Crow, Maroon 5's Adam Levine and others.
The long awaited return of Velvet Revolver may be approaching come 2012!
The band's drummer, Matt Sorum (also affiliated with Guns N' Roses and the Cult), recently opened up about the current state of the supergroup that also includes GNR's Slash and Duff McKagan alongside Dave Kushner formerly of punk band Wasted Youth.
Congrats are in order for drummer Matt Sorum, who mans the kit for Velvet Revolver and who used to pound the skins for Guns N' Roses after Steven Adler was bounced. Sorum will wed Ace Harper, the lead singer of his "other band" Diamond Baby and his girlfriend for the last seven years. Congrats again to Matt and Ace on their forthcoming nuptials.
