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."

I'm not a fan of the tone of the above, at all.

Just say you're parting ways and move forward.

The finger pointing at Weiland sits no better with me than Weiland's goofy press release aimed at Sorum.

That said...

It makes for very interesting rock n roll theatre.... yes

Considering he was open about how this was the last tour (unlike the rest of the band), I wouldn't be surprised if he actually told the band he was leaving some time ago.

Then they put out that press release to make it seem like he was fired.

I appologize for bringing A...  eeh, I mean MR X into this even if I kind of complimented him, sorry!

Yeah I know they are doing things that makes them money, but it dosent mean that they are only about the money. With that reasoning all recording/touring artist are in it for the money in some way...

Dont know if you (Jarmo) directed your last sentance at me, but I dident even hint at you being in VR??

I agree 100%.

The day he confirmed the STP reunion he in effect fired them, made STP his priority.

This was a face saviing move at best, a classless one at that.

I understand what you're saying, but to me it's honestly not as bad as Weiland's press release against Sorum or Weiland's other infamous press release a couple of years ago.

Overall, Slash could have been a lot more venomous, but he wasn't.  It was honest without being childish and resorting to name-calling.

I didn't say only either!

I hinted at it being a possible motivator in at least some cases while Slash says "This band is all about its fans and its music".

Jarmo, like you even said, Slash is a Rock Icon, a brand name, and a Session player to the stars.  I really do think they do VR for themselves.  Would they like to be successful?  Sure, but he doesn't need VR to make a living.

Well that is that, I guess. At the very least, fans could have hoped for a reconciliation after STP was through, but this even kills that possibility. Scott looked great up there with Slash N' Duff even though I felt his voice was overwhelmed by the freight train from VR's harder tracks. He wrote some terrific ballads and I truly appreciate Loving the Alien and Messages as two truly terrific contributions to my life.

And now he's moving on....

Falcon, I don't see the need for the release either.  I rather not burn bridges.  There must be some behind the scenes stuff we don't know about.  That being said, Slash's comments were dead on.  Scott this past tour was aweful and disrespectful and they often had to turn his mike off cause he was wasted and was fucking up a good performance.

You Got No Right, his finest lyrical moment in VR.  The other ballads were good too, even if repetitive.

That was a good one, too. With a great Slash solo.

Cheers.

Sure, but he doesn't need VR to make a living.

Compare where he was before VR and where he is today.

It's not a question about just making a living. Look at Izzy. He seems to manage just fine without all the attention and stuff.


He's way more in the spotlight today than he was in say 2002.



And once again I'd like to remind you that I don't care how he makes a living. It's up to him.

But don't tell us "it's all about the music and fans".

There's really no justification or levels of "bad" for me on this one, both were sheer idiocy

or Weiland's other infamous press release a couple of years ago.

Lets not forget the other press release and chain of events that prompted that one, easily the lowest point in their whole history for me.

Overall, Slash could have been a lot more venomous, but he wasn't.  It was honest without being childish and resorting to name-calling.

Sure it could've been worse...but...

It still looks like a face saving move to me, simple as that.

That's for damn sure.

This was mishandled by all parties involved.  They all just kept stooping lower and lower.  The bigger thing to do would have been to just do the press release without attacking Scott in the process.  They could have just stated they were parting ways and have been done with it.

Don't bring Axl into this.  ok

LOL!

Dude ... you really have to jump off that train ... he didn't bring Axl up Smiley  His point was entirely about the course of Slash and Duff's career choices, and entirely not about Axl.

Personally I'm glad about this situation ... VR needs stability and Scott doesn't offer that.  I'm in a band and if my singer was THAT flakey, I'd be fucking pissed off a LOT.
