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."

    Half of this article is taken out of an article published just a few days ago..there really isn't anything else that happened?
    Slash is turning into a real "killjoy" - No to multiple singers on his solo albums, no to Axl, no to Scott. Look out Myles you're next!
    I really want VR to come back, but I think that Weilands beef with the band would take an effect on their music. Unless they all come together on this, it's not going to be the VR that people like I think.
    Agreed, I'd rather have Velvet Revolver coming back in full force than a half arsed reunion, otherwise what's the point?
