If you've been following the press recently, you'll know that former Velvet Revolver frontman Scott Weiland believes that the time is now right to bet back with his old band. Asked in an interview why this might be the case, Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash offered a new insight on the situation, claiming that Weiland has been fired from Stone Temple Pilots:
"That's because he got fired from STP... These things always catch me by surprise too - I always find out about it through the media and I'm on the road in another country. I start hearing all this stuff and then I inquire within, and that's what I was told."
Slash isn't in the market for a new singer at present. As he noted, he is more than happy with current collaborator Myles Kennedy, the Alter Bridge singer who is currently fronting Slash's solo band:
"I don't compare anybody, but we have a lot of similarities because we're both guitar players. On top of that he's a brilliant singer. His personality is very laid back and he's a very hard worker. He just never ceases to amaze me."
