Velvet Revolver Cover Pink Floyd Classic At Reunion Gig [VIDEO]
During the lengthy and unsuccessful search a replacement, the members of Velvet Revolver were able to mend their once-toxic relationship with former vocalist Scott Weiland. So much so that Weiland accepted their offer to once again front them for a one-off gig at last night’s (1/12) ‘Love You Madly: A Concert for John O’ Brien‘ at The House of Blues in West Hollywood.
Velvet Revolver performed their debut album opener ‘Sucker Train Blues,’ as well as ‘She Builds Quick Machines’ and ‘Slither’ before breaking into a rendition of Pink Floyd’s ‘Wish You Were Here.’ The brief reunion seemed to go off without a hitch but what that means for the future of the band is unclear. Weiland is still fronting Stone Temple Pilots — who are readying a tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of their debut album ‘Core’ — and last we heard VR was close to bringing on Jimmy Gnecco to front the band. As usual, we’ll keep you posted.
