Scott Weiland Will Rejoin Velvet Revolver For Tribute Gig
While it may not be the reunion news involving Slash and Duff McKagan you were hoping for, the one night only reformation of VR is surprising considering how things ended for the supergroup that formed in 2003.
Blabbermouth reports that Weiland will return to front Velvet Revolver for a brief performance on January 12th at the House of Blues in West Hollywood. The event titled ‘Love You Madly: A Concert For John O’ Brien’ will honor the recently deceased film/TV composer and feature several artists including Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, Sheryl Crow, and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine.
“We patched things up and we get along. I see them every now and again, we text each other and you know, we can never say never. Who knows, maybe we’ll do some shows some time.”
Looks like no matter how poorly things end, there’s always hope for reconciliation — we’re looking at you Axl. Velvet Revolver are currently seeking Weiland’s permanent replacement and are reportedly in talks with former Ours frontman Jimmy Gnecco for the gig. Scott Weiland has been working with Stone Temple Pilots on their next album, as far as we know — that is still going to happen.
