|VELVET REVOLVER recently spent time in a Los Angeles studio recording several b-sides for upcoming singles, according to a brand-new interview with bassist Duff McKagan conducted by Finland's Sonera Plaza. Among the tracks the band recorded were Cheap Trick's "Surrender", Aerosmith's "No More, No More" and Queen's "Tie Your Mother Down". Watch a video of McKagan's interview with Sonera Plaza at this location (Real One player required).
VELVET REVOLVER's video for "Fall to Pieces" has been posted online at Launch.com.
"Fall To Pieces" is the second single from the group's debut album, "Contraband". The clip, which takes place in a setting reminiscent of Hollywood clubs of the Seventies like the Starwood, not only features the band, but their wives as well. VELVET REVOLVER bassist Duff McKagan said about the shoot, "Um, yeah, we had some of our wives in there, and [singer] Scott's [Weiland] wife, Mary, which the song was basically written around — the premise of his life falling down all around him, and he was separated from his wife and his two kids. And it was just, you know, kinda just — it's a family vibe. We're all in this together."
