The singer says he would like to play a few high-profile dates with his old band for a quick payday.
McKagan answers the question that could help revive the long-dormant supergroup.
The newly formed supergroup shot to the top of the charts, selling four million copies in the U.S. alone.
Duff McKagan is unsure of the future of Velvet Revolver, the supergroup he formed in 2003 with his fellow ex-Guns N' Roses bandmates Slash and Matt Sorum, and Stone Temple Pilots lead singer Scott Weiland. In a new interview, he says he has "no idea" who will replace Weiland, who was fired in 2008.
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.
