Scott Weiland Looks to Velvet Revolver Reunion
After remaining in a kind of hard-rock limbo for the past five
years, Velvet Revolver now appear to be closer to
a reunion than ever before, according to Scott
In a recent interview with
Rolling Stone, the Stone Temple Pilot frontman
said he may rejoin the supergroup .
"I am completely open to it, and I know there are other guys
in the band that are completely open to it. There have been some
things that have stood in the way that aren't anything that have to
do with the band. But now we're sorting through things, and we want
to start writing for some big film opportunities that have come our
way, and try to set things up the way we set things up when we
initially got together."
He went on:
"I think it's the perfect time for Velvet Revolver to get
back together. Slash has done some great things, and I look forward
to the opportunity to seeing him on my left and seeing Duff McKagan
-- who, in my opinion, is without a doubt one of the greatest rock
& roll and punk rock bass players of all time. And is still in
amazing shape -- is more ripped than just about any 25-year-old on
the planet. And with (drummer) Matt (Sorum) and (guitarist) Dave
(Kushner) as well, who are just incredible musicians. I think
that's exciting to look forward to. It's the old cliché, 'If the
gods of rock want it to happen, then it will."
In related news Weiland also revealed that he hopes his solo
band, which now goes by the name of Scott Weiland and the
Wildabouts, will get to work on a new studio album and
also plan to hit the road for a US tour.
