Weiland Says Velvet Revolver Was For The Money (Top 11 of 11)


.
Weiland Says Velvet Revolver Was For The Money was a top 11 story of 2011 for May. Here is the recap: (Rock News Desk) Scott Weiland admits he joined Velvet Revolver purely for the money and although he liked the band's music he didn't think it was his best work.

The singer joined ex Guns n'Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum alongside guitarist Dave Kushner in 2003, after he left Stone Temple Pilots. They recorded two albums together before the band kicked him out for his continuing drug addiction issues.

In his biography Not Dead And Not For Sale, published next week, Weiland says his first reaction to being invited to join was. "Sounds like a lot of egos sounds like a lot of trouble," he writes. "They put some songs on a CD and my wife said, 'They think you'll like what they're doing.' I didn't; it sounded like Bad Company and I never liked Bad Company. A week or so later another CD arrived with songs custom-designed for me. The tunes had STP written all over them." - more on this story
