Perfect Time For Velvet Revolver Reunion Says Scott Weiland
Rolling Stone caught up with Weiland to discuss his busy plans for 2013 and when the topic turned to the possibility of his reuniting with Velvet Revolver, he had this to say, "I am completely open to it, and I know there are other guys in the band that are completely open to it. There have been some things that have stood in the way that aren't anything that have to do with the band – just other players, whether it be agents . . . But now we're sorting through things, and we want to start writing for some big film opportunities that have come our way, and try to set things up the way we set things up when we initially got together."
"I think it's the perfect time for Velvet Revolver to get back together," Weiland said. "Slash has done some great things, and I look forward to the opportunity to seeing him on my left and seeing Duff McKagan – who, in my opinion, is without a doubt one of the greatest rock'n' roll and punk rock bass players of all time. "And is still in amazing shape – is more ripped than just about any 25-year-old on the planet. And with Matt [Sorum] and Dave [Kushner] as well, who are just incredible musicians. I think that's exciting to look forward to. It's the old cliché, 'If the gods of rock want it to happen, then it will.'" Read the Rolling Stone report for more details.
