|VELVET REVOLVER (minus guitarist Dave Kushner) performed a special three-song acoustic set at the Snitch nightclub in New York City Friday night (Sept. 17). According to one attendee, the band played acoustic renditions of "Dead Flowers" (THE ROLLING STONES), "Surrender" (CHEAP TRICK) and "Used to Love Her" (GUNS N' ROSES). Kushner failed to take part in the performance because he reportedly showed up late to the club, which is co-owned by VELVET REVOLVER members Scott Weiland and Duff McKagan.
