Velvet Revolver Reunite, Cover Pink Floyd
Velvet Revolver reformed with original singer Scott Weiland for a special one-off show in LA last Thursday. As part of their four-song set, the band covered Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here," which you can see below. It was the first time Weiland had fronted the band since leaving in 2008. Although he will not be officially rejoining full time, the apparent difficulties in finding his replacement leaves some fans hoping it will inspire the original lineup to record a new album. In addition to the Pink Floyd cover, the band performed their own songs "Sucker Train Blues," "She Builds Quick Machines" and "Slither." The event was organised by Velvet Revolver guitarist Dave Kushner in honor of his friend John O'Brian who was found dead in a hotel room last August, aged 45. According to NME, the late film composer was famous for film soundtracks including "Iron Man" and "Pineapple Express." Other artists on the bill included Rage Against The Machine guitarist Tom Morello and Maroon 5. Proceeds from the star-studded event went to O'Brian's widow.
