There might be a Velvet Revolver comeback on the horizon, as vocalist Scott Weiland has contacted the band to propose the idea, all for the sake of "making easy money."
Chatting with LaPresse, Scott noted that with Velvet Revolver, "there is no problem. I even called the guys to propose the idea of doing some shows together in a few months."
Further explaining the reunion details, the singer added, "We are on good terms, but I do not want to be a member of Velvet Revolver full time. If possible, I would like to only play at festivals. You know, to make easy money..."
Adding that other former members of the band are either busy or don't need the money as much as he does, Weiland continued (via Alternative Nation), "Dave [Kushner, guitarist] made music for TV. He made the theme of the series 'Sons of Anarchy.'
"Duff [McKagan] has a lot of money in the stock market. As for Slash, he put aside the money he did in the days of Guns N' Roses. Finally, Matt [Sorum] has embarked on a package of stuff," he said.
In related news, drummer Matt Sorum said that if the Velvet Revolver reunion is to happen, it needs to unfold "organically," with no pressure whatsoever. "It's gotta organically happen," he kicked off during a Radio.com chat. "Something's gotta just pop, that's the kind of band we've always been."
Explaining how the band's first two albums came very naturally, at the "right time and place," the drummer concluded, "With Duff and Slash, nothing's ever been too forced." So the idea's definitely out there, stay tuned for more updates.
