Scott Weiland Back With Velvet Revolver?
Scott Weiland says he's back to front Velvet Revolver, four years after they fired him - but guitarist Slash says it's news to him. Weiland was fired during a tour in 2008 after relations between the band and the singer, prompting the group to search high and low for a suitable replacement. Despite this, they reformed for a show in January in memory of film composer John O'Brian, though the band were keen to stress that this was a one-off reunion. That all changed yesterday when Weiland told ABC News that everyone but Slash has invited him to a songwriting session: "We've all grown a lot," said Weiland. "We're able to put egos and differences and old... conflicts aside and so that's really cool. "They gave me a couple of songs and myself and [guitarist] Dave [Kushner] and [bassist] Duff [McKagan] are gonna be getting together for a song writing session next week." The singer added that he would tour with the band in late summer after Slash completes his solo tour - but when 93X asked the guitarist about their alleged reunion, it was the first he had heard of it. Sounding audibly surprised, Slash said Weiland was "out of him mind," but added "maybe they know something I don't... I'll call Duff but I seriously doubt it. We have no intention of going backwards." Slash notes that his solo band is touring all year, so there won't be room for Weiland's claims of a Velvet Revolver tour anyway. What do you think? Has Slash been kept out the loop, or is Weiland playing games with the press?
