That Velvet Revolver reunion story from a few hours ago was pretty exciting, right? Well... hold onto that happy feeling, because according to Slash that's all you're going to get for a while: "I have absolutely no intention of going back to that."
The man chosen to replace Scott Weiland as frontman for Velvet Revolver is … Scott Weiland. The oft-troubled singer is back with the band, and they're making new music with an eye on a third studio album.
Velvet Revolver have put off their search for a replacement for Scott Weiland to let Slash tour in support of his recent solo album. Recent interviews with drummer Matt Sorum and the former Stone Temple Pilots singer hint that the search could one day be put off indefinitely.
Scott Weiland didn't exactly leave Velvet Revolver on friendly terms, but the singer and his former bandmates have had a few years to smooth things over -- and they'll celebrate their newfound harmony when they come together for a one-night-only reunion concert on Jan. 12 at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, Calif.
The band will be just one part of an impressive lineup that's coming together to honor the memory of award-winning songwriter John O'Brien, who died earlier this year at the age of 45.
Velvet Revolver may be on hiatus, but the band is still actively searching for a new frontman, drummer Matt Sorum reveals. And even if a replacement for singer Scott Weiland, who departed in 2008, is found right away, it still may take some time to get a new record or tour going.
Veteran guitarist Slash has recruited R&B queen Mary J. Blige to guest on his second solo album, which he reportedly resumed working on recently. The axeman revealed the news via twitter: “Just finished a session with Mike Clink engineering on a track with Mary J Blige. Sounds killer!”
