Stone Temple Pilots Singer Scott Weiland: 'I'm Open To A Velvet Revolver Reunion'
Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland has said "he is completely open" to fronting Velvet Revolver again. The band played a one-off benefit gig in LA for band member Dave Kushner's late friend John O'Brien earlier this year, their first following a bitter fall-out with the frontman in 2008 which saw him kicked out of the band. Following the reunion, Weiland said he was set to rejoin the band, but Slash declared that the singer was "out of his mind" and he had "no intention" of going back to the band. Now, yet again Weiland claims he has been in contact with the other members and they're already eyeing up future projects for Velvet Revolver. He told: "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 just other players, agents. Weiland added: "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 also went on to praise his fellow band members who also include former Guns N' Roses members Matt Sorum and Duff McKagan. The singer added: "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 [bassist] Duff who, in my opinion, is without a doubt one of the greatest rock'n'roll and punk rock bass players of all time.(via NME) "And with Matt and Dave as well, who are just incredible musicians. I think that's exciting to look forward to. It's the old cliche, 'If the gods of rock want it to happen, then it will'."
