Velvet Revolver Reunion Possible?

Velvet Revolver have made headlines with speculation over who they will pick to replace Scott Weiland and now it seems the door is open to the perfect replacement: Scott Weiland.

Both Weiland and Matt Sorum have made recent comments which show they are open to the idea of reuniting. According to Blabbermouth, Sorum was discussing the recent one-off reunion at a benefit concert with KCAL Radio and said of Weiland, "It was cool, man. We hadn't played together in a long time. We soundchecked a few songs. We only played, like, three songs. But it was cool to be on stage and play music again. It was like riding a bike. Everyone had a good time and we raised some money for a really sad situation. John O'Brien passed away and left a pregnant wife and another child. And a lot of people turned out for the show… Amazing turnout."

He added, "We had a good time. Me and Scott worked out some stuff backstage and had talked, and that was nice. He came up to me and he was real humble and really cool. 'Cause stuff happens when you're out on the road and people are tired and you say s***. Everything is on the Internet now; you can't get away with anything.

"Being in the music business for as long as I have been, I'm still learning lessons. We were out on the road for 18 months. And we got tired and things happened. There's a lot of pressure. You think you'd always wanna do it differently, but stuff goes the way it's gonna go; I can't explain it."

He then went on to discuss the possibility of a reunion and seemed open to it but was clear that with Slash putting out a new album and touring it is not something they are focused on. Read more of his comments here.

Meanwhile, Scott Weiland seems very receptive to the idea of reuniting with Velvet Revolver and also remaining in Stone Temple Pilots. He told Rolling Stone, "If Maynard [James Keenan] can do it with A Perfect Circle and Tool, then there's no reason why I shouldn't go and do it with both bands."
