Of his time in Velvet Revolver, Weiland recently told The Pulse Of Radio
: "That was right when I was getting off dope and those guys were all sober and clean, and I had a very special kind of kinship because we'd all experienced the same things ... It was a great band to see live, and I think we made two exciting albums.
"Love You Madly: A Concert For John O'Brien" pays tribute to award-winning ASCAP composer John O'Brien
, who was found dead in his Chicago hotel room in August. He composed the music for "Nightwatch
", "Iron Man
" and many other movies and TV shows.
