I'm basically an "Axl" guy...

But that being said, the world definitely needs Slash, Duff and Matt out there making records, touring and rockin' hard. I hope they get this shit squared away ASAP and end up with a great lead singer a little more compatible with their backgrounds and talents.

Good luck to VR. peace

Wanted: Singer for a rock n' motherfucking roll band. Inspired by Steven Tyler, Mick Jagger. Note: Don't try to steal the spotlight from our drummer and be aware of who the real stars in the band are.

Well, i for one am really happy Scott is out. He was the one thing that stopped me from being a fan in the first place. When the rumors were of Josh Todd or Bach singing for this new group that is now Velvet Revolver, I was excited. Then I heard the name Scott Weiland.....eh......so hopefully, they find someone who can actually sing, and maybe I'll give this band a chance.

I mentioned this in another thread...but wonder what you think:

Don't you find it "interesting" that both sides in this seem to be reliving the same experiences, with minor differences, over and over again.

The "Ex Gunners" can't find a lead singer that can stay with them.

Scott can't find a band that can put up with him.

Don't get me wrong, I LIKE VR.  Bought both albums (BOUGHT THEM, mind you, didn't download them).  Went to see them up in Amherst, MA, and again in Bridgeport, CT.  I think the Ex-Gunners are VERY talented, when they're on their game and not being lazy, and I think Scott is a GREAT vocalist (if not an inspired lyricist).  I genuinely LIKE VR's music.

But you have to look at what's happened and wonder why this all feels a lot like deja vu.

One word: egos.

Most of them got them.

Mix it up with greed and you got a nice cocktail.


Snakepit was proof that Slash himself couldn't carry a band on his shoulders. So he teams up with a famous guy, with known issues, hoping to make it big again. And now blames that guy and those issues for the problems?

Working with somebody who's famous in his/her own right doesn't seem to work for these guys, but can they get an unknown Rod Jackson type of guy and still make it?

Somebody who's never been there before. Somebody who's not used to being at that level, you know, not just a bar band?

I think there's a fair amount of truth in that.  You just have to wonder that if WE can all see it...why can't they?  IMHO, they're never going to find a real frontman until they can check their egos, at least a little bit, and learn to co-exist....try to be a BAND....and not try to have 5 different generals all trying to steer the boat in different directions.  If there was ONE thing about VR's music that I found fault with, it was the cohesion.  And simply finding a "lead singer" wet noodle, who will just go with the flow of the band, isn't going to cut it, IMHO.  The Ex-Gunners seem to be at their best when being pushed a little, from the outside....inspired, as it were.

 It's also not like they didn't know going in Wieland's rep...and that it was a well deserved one.

Again, I think Wieland can have the same sort of "charges" laid at his feet, along with some others...it's not ALL Slash/Duff/Matt's fault.....and again, I go back to the fact this keeps happening to BOTH sides of this issue.  Wieland keeps having bands abandon him, and Slash/Duff/Matt just can't seem to keep a lead singer around for more than a couple of albums.

Does Slash have Perry Ferrell's number?

Scott - frying pan
Perry - fire

Not a good fit

I'm wondering if the VR fans will start referring to the band that exists from today as "new-VR"?

I have to admit to thinking, slyly, the exact same thing when this started to come out.

But I wasn't gonna say it.....

GN'R was a legendary act that over took the world of rock whlle they were around. VR...was not. People have a hard time dealing with the whole situation of the name Guns N' Roses, so I can only imagine that's why the new-GN'R thing came to terms.

This is ridiculous! The vultures are closing in! VR will always be VR and not 'new-VR' or 'nu-VR' even if there is only Slash finally left twanging on strings. I don't know why you people even bother posting in this section?

Now, either get on board or go have a Dr. Pepper. rant

Guys, it's called sarcasm.

And you can be a VR fan (I count myself as one) and still see the irony and double standard, here.

When I thought it...it was more of the niggling little smart ass in the back of my brain cracking wise....because you HAVE to see the similarities that the Ex-Gunners are facing AGAIN.

Oh, and I want to get on board AND have a Dr. Pepper.  Why do I have to choose?

I've never liked VR, but I still find it odd that some people take such a perverse pleasure in other people's disappointment.
