Velvet Revolver to Part Ways With Singer
Tuesday April 1, 3:46 pm ET

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Velvet Revolver founding members Slash, Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum and Dave Kushner announced today that they are parting ways with singer Scott Weiland. "This band is all about its fans and its music and Scott Weiland isn't 100% committed to either," said Slash. "Among other things, his increasingly erratic on-stage behavior and personal problems have forced us to move on."

Thanks for posting, man.  You are always on the news updates!  Smiley

Wow, I didn't see this one coming  hihi

Hopefully all involved will move on to better situations.

I hope that Slash and Duff stay together and make music.

They couldn't wait until April 2nd, they had to issue the press release on April Fools Day?

Well, it's been brewing for a long time.  Given that, I think the seriousness of this statement is obvious.

I highly doubt Yahoo news and the artist's management are into playing April Fool's jokes right now.

Can't say we didn't see this coming though.

Hopefully they will find someone who is a better fit with the rest of the band who seem to work well together otherwise.

No, I guess not.  Just wishful thinking on my part, I've been waiting all day for a good joke.  Seriously, though, if it were me, I think I'd be pretty pissed getting fired on April Fools Day.  Regardless, both sides will move on and I think continue to be relatively successful.

Both sides will be moving on, but Weiland is entering, or re-entering actually, a known entity with STP.  VR with a new singer is an unknown entity and a new frontman could change VR quite a bit depending on who he is and how much he contributes with the songwriting process.

I guess that would be a sequel to the first VH1 special.  I'd watch it for sure.  I'm curious.  Though, I think once was enough.

Do any VR fans feel like it won't be the real Velvet Revolver without Weiland?

That's messed up to announce this the day of the last show.  I guess Slash is trying to get the jump on things and show who really runs the band......

I hope they don't feel that way.  The rest of the band is obviously very tight and work well together, it seems to me that Scott was the one who was driving things apart.  You almost knew when he started talking nonstop about the STP reunion that he was going to be making an exit.

I found that strange as well.  I believe the current time in Amsterdam is about 10:30, so they should be in the middle performing right about now.

well, I like VR, but I never got why they ended up with him, he dident fit perfectly, and their next singer should be closer to Slash musically because it is a waste to pair Slash with anybody who?s not close to his artistic style, hope it is someone who rocks hard in the league of Bach, Axl or somebody who make a GREAT frontman like Lee Roth or something, thats my wish if I could decide for them...  At least its not boring, and they are still able to cause some scandals... rofl

Not about the money?

Oh darn....

Well, we all need money, but it is possible to both doing something you love, and live off it the same time. And Jarmo, say what you want but I have never gotten the impression from Slash/Duff that they have done so much things just for the money, I mean if they were sooooooo hungry for making big bucks they would have stayed with Axl, dont you think?

Don't bring Axl into this.  ok



You want a list of things VR has done for money?

Duff even admitted they were doing those VIP Meet & Greet things because it was a way to make money on tour.


Slash has transformed himself from "only" a guitar hero for rock fans into a brand name who appears in video games and sells Gibson guitars.

If it was only about music, I wouldn't be surprised if he hadn't done many of these things.

Obviously he's free to do whatever the fuck he feels like to pay the bills, but please don't tell me "This band is all about its fans and its music ".....


And no, I'm still not in VR. You might have heard otherwise from several (clueless) posters on this board, but it's not true.  Grin
