From an interview with Scott Weiland Chicago Tribune April 8, 2008...

Q.What happened with Velvet Revolver?

Weiland:
This happened very organically. It wasn?t people trying to angle and beg. It just happened the way it sort of happened. I got a call from Dean. I was on tour. He said, ??Man, are you sitting down??? I said yeah. He said, ??I was talking with our agent, and some offers came through.?? We?d all been starting to talk more often. I had talked to Slash, mentioned it to him, and things were cool for a while. And this last tour, things just disintegrated really badly. I just came to the point where I decided that ... if I?m going to commit the next 10 years of my life to touring ... then I want to do it with people I want to make music with. People who I get inspired by making music with. ...I have to start weeding out stuff. It?s kind of like going through your closet going, ??Eh, I don?t need this anymore. It takes up too much space.?? Certain things don?t feel good, although it may put money in your bank account, but it doesn?t feel good at the end of the day. It became one of those situations.

This feels good, it feels right. It?s always inspiring. It?s always that high.

How many times have Axl fans been fucked off because he didn't turn up to a show etc?  At least VR cancelled before the night Wink

Stop pulling shit out of your ass for no reason.

Not as many as you'd care to think.

And he's gone back and played those places.

It's not likely to happen with VR is it?

Not to rip on Axl but can you please tell me the last time he played Philly?  It sure as hell wasn't after he no-showed.....and I was at the show

Pathetic.

Maybe playing places where the "fans" destroy your equipment isn't a high priority.

Maybe the fucking promoter doesn't want to risk anything and doesn't wanna book a show there thanks to these fans?

So u are trying to say its the fans fault? No band in particular, but just any band.

I dont agree with fans rioting and all that but we can't totally relieve the band of any accountability.

Yeah.  Like I said in another section, he kind of said similar things about STP, when he first left, and said similar positive things about VR, when he first started with them.    I've liked Scott for a long time, way before VR, but I've lost a lot of respect for him in the last several months.

And you guarantee no damage was done to the band's own, or any of the equipment they had rented for the tour?

From 411mania.com

2. Firing Scott Weiland was a good move on Velvet Revolver's part that will give the band a new lease on life.

John Nagle: Fact. I'm actually surprised it lasted this long. However, instead of finding a new singer, I think they should just hang it up entirely. Weiland isn't my cup of tea, but he had the right kind of charisma for the band. Since Slash and company refuse to work with anyone that isn't "current," I can't think of a modern rock singer that has the arena filling presence that Weiland has. Josh Todd from Buckcherry would be a decent replacement, but he's too busy with his own band.

Mitch Michaels: Fiction. I think that Scott Weiland had to go, but the way Velvet Revolver went about it is what I don't agree with. Weiland was on the outs with the band anyway, and would've most likely called it quits when he rejoined Stone Temple Pilots, who stand to make a lot of money this summer. Instead, VR rushed things and sent out that snipey public statement, making both parties look like little bitches. Besides, Scott has STP, who does VR have? And don't say Sebastian Bach. Barring the return of anyone not named "Axl", the split with Scott Weiland is the beginning of the end for Velvet Revolver, at least as a commercially viable entity.

Ah, another misinformed journalist regarding who fired who.

Looks like the face saving move worked in this case...

I think he quit once he realized that he doesn't have to stay in a band with people like Matt Sorum.


Matt's comments on that radio show were amusing. He makes it sound like Scott just told them he was doing STP and that's why everything fell apart.

Slash says it started before that ("This is something that?s been coming down for a while. I know everybody is tying the STP [reunion tour] thing to it, but it started way before that.").

Those two can't even get their stories to match and they're on the same side! Then you have a third version from Scott.

VR/Slash never really said they were firing him-mostly said parting ways in the press release they sent out-I'm not sure how people would want them to word it-it's obvious that all the members knew it was the end-it's egos, rock n roll-see Motley Crue, Van Halen-there is always a "I was fired/he quit" aspect to every band

Everyone could see this coming for a while.  If you could see Duff and Slash's reaction on stage when Scott almost passed out and fucked up patience you would know this shit wasn't gonna last.  Plus the cancelled shows.  Plus the rehab during tour was just too much.  Patience wore thin.  I agree with Falcon, Weiland ditched them.  Hell, huge tour and album to follow.  BUT, I do think even without STP, Slash and Duff were ancy for a new singer.  So in the end, its mutual, but Scott "ended" it first.

STP is going to be a huge payday-I think it sucks they broke up-do I blame Scott? No, if he's not into it, and they are not getting along, what's the point-I didn't think it would last this long when they first hired Scott-it would be interesting with a new lead singer, and great if they recorded one more album that would hit # 1 here in the U.S-Slash, Duff, and Matt will have done it with 3 different singers ok

They always say being in a band is like being in a relationship.  I'm sure many of us have been in relationships that go to shit and there's two different stories on who dumped who.
