Slash: 'I Can See Scott Weiland Coming Back to Velvet Revolver, But I Can't See Anybody Accepting Him'
As former Velvet Revolver singer Scott Weiland expressed desire to reunite with the band "to make easy money," guitarist Slash noted that he could in fact see Scott back in the fold, but not without consequences.

"I can see Scott coming back, but I can't see anybody accepting him. That's sort of the case," he told Toronto Sun. "It's not a big deal and I don't want to bad mouth Scott or anything. The whole thing is we're looking for another guy to replace him it just hasn't happened. It's dormant, but there's activity under the radar."

As reported, drummer Matt Sorum recently also noted that VR comeback is a possibility, stressing that it needs to happen "organically."

Back to the Slash interview, the axeman also shared his thoughts on the matter of rock 'n' roll future. "It's good and bad for new bands coming up," he said. "They really have to work their a-- off to make a statement and make something people can relate to.

"For me, I just want to do something that's inspiring ... I get excited about coming up with something that makes me say, 'This is cool; this is not something I did last week.' So I just keep moving in that direction."
