The article is in Spanish...thanks to Voodoochild for the translation. ok


VELVET REVOLVER BRAKING UP?

Confunsing news has been floating around these days around the band. On www.rock-star.es, we were told through our US reporter, Michael Wainwright, that Slash and Duff McKagan have been in talking to some singers, with rumors about Paul Black from LA Guns and Perry Farrel from Jane's Addiction among other singers who would be hable to audition to joing Velvet Revolver to replace Scott Weiland, whose situation in the band looks like very damaged.

According to www.totalrock.com, there will indeed be a statement from the managers in which they will announce the cancelation of the next Australian tour that the band were schueduled to do in December. The reason given was "health problems", but the statement didn't say who was ill. Other sources says that the inside situation of the band is a total mess because of Scott Weiland's drug problems, the bad performances in their last leg of American tour and for and the poor sales of their last album, 'Libertad'. All of which would be affecting their excitement, specially from Slash and Duff to walk away from the project and brake up the Velvet Revolver. We stay tuned at any news as they show up.

Looks like general speculation to me. It's over a month old, and the band have scheduled concert dates since then and played gigs.

Yeah I don't know about that.  There are a number of spelling and grammatical errors in that article.  That doesn't seem very official to me.

It was translated from Spanish...unless you are commenting on the original article?

Oh, ok.  My bad.  Good translation then.  I could see there being trouble with the band.  It's certainly a believable story.  Not sure who could save the band as a lead singer though.  It's not like Scott Weiland is a slouch.

Yeah sorry about that.  My reading comprehension is lacking today as I completely glossed over the first sentence stating that it was translated.  A job well done on translating.

Even Duff isn't sure if they'll make another album:

?I?m lucky I suppose,? said McKagan ?my passion is also my living. This band has allowed all of us who might have been relegated to ?you were in a good band but it?s over now? file to show that we are still musically viable.?

Despite having been a key member in what many consider to be one of the greatest rock bands of all time McKagan is still hesitant about what lies ahead. ?I never try to plan out my future. I?ve learned from experience,? McKagan said ?there are so many different lives going on within a band. Some people have to go back to a family and kids. I hope that we will make a third album I really do. But if we don?t at least I can say it was a good time.?

Is this quote referring to a GNR reunion?  The first sentence confuses me.  Says eventhough he was a member of GNR, he is not sure about his future about VR.  That doesn't make sense.  As long as they are happy that is all that matters to me.  I hope it works out for everyone.

No.

It's about how he was part of the biggest band in the world and now is in another successful band.

But he's not sure if his current band will carry on making a third album or not.

I know that is what they meant, by why did they have to bring up that he was in GNR in the same sentence if he is not sure about his future, like being in GNR makes him more sure of his future or something?!?!?!?!

VELVET REVOLVER frontman Scott Weiland has told MiamiHerald.com that fans should be on the lookout for a reunion of his previous band, STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, in the coming months. The singer made the announcement during an appearance this past Saturday (January 19) at an all-star gala event benefiting the AROD Family Foundation. The event took place at the Ritz Carlton hotel in South Beach, Florida. Hosts included Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez and his wife Cynthia, who founded the non-profit organization to support programs focused on improving quality of life, education and mental health for families in distress.

STONE TEMPLE PILOTS guitarist Dean DeLeo and bassist Robert DeLeo confirmed the band's split in 2003 following the release of the group's greatest-hits package, "Thank You".

"It was time to move on to other things," Dean told Guitar One magazine at the time. "Life and personalities and brotherhood took its course."

"Dean and [drummer] Eric [Kretz] and myself, I think, all feel a sense of sadness, relief, anger, melancholy about it," said Robert. "But to try and go and accomplish something with this band after we've already peaked is a bit cheesy. There's a cheese factor with guys hitting 40 trying to recapture glory.

"There's no way to go but out."

Weiland was expected to appear in a Los Angeles courtroom last Thursday (January 17), where his recent DUI case was to be continued. The singer was charged with driving under the influence of drugs after being pulled over by police in late November.

VELVET REVOLVER will begin a new U.S. tour on January 24 in Chicago, with dates confirmed through February 9.

guess that means the whole writing in April has gone to hell.... Roll Eyes

Paris HIlton, rock drummer?

She certainly had no problems playing pinch hitter at Tao last night in Park City, Utah, when band Velvet Revolver was short their lead singer Scott Weiland.

Speculation from inside the band's camp said the singer had missed his flight to Sundance for the performance, but that didn't stop his band mates from literally asking the crowd if they wanted to have a go.

"It's was crazy, they were inviting anyone who wanted to get up sing," an onlooker told PageSix.com.

While Paris, who released an album in the summer of 2006, didn't sing a note, she told the crowd, "This is Tao! Let's have a good time!"
