Bassist Duff McKagan recently addressed the rumors regarding the return of Velvet Revolver by bluntly shooting them all down.
Chatting with VH1 Radio, Duff still gave fans a glimpse of hope by saying "when it's the right time to happen again, it'll happen."
Getting down to the stories about VR auditioning new vocalists, McKagan stated, "I'm not aware that we're auditioning [any singers] right now and I think I would be aware."
Asked about the possibility of Scott Weiland's return, the bassist added (via Blabbermouth), "No, that played itself out. That was a chapter in life, you know, not a defining moment, just a chapter, and I wish that guy the best of luck and I hope he's okay."
The rest of the band seemed very much opposed to Weiland's return as well, and with no efforts being made on finding the new singer, the question still remains on whether the group's hiatus will turn out to be a permanent one.
