2008 – Velvet Revolver:The exit door had no sooner hit Scott Weiland on the backside when his ex-bandmates in Velvet Revolver opened the door to the studio. They’re already hard at work on new music. Blabbermouth has the story:
Duff McKagan has posted a message on the web site of his side project Loaded stating that VR has finished “laying down 12 new jams” at the studio of the group’s drummer, Matt Sorum. No further details were provided.
Velvet Revolver announced that it was parting ways with singer Scott Weiland on April 1 due to his “increasingly erratic on-stage behavior and personal problems.”
In other news, McKagan has hinted on the Loaded web site that the band he formed after he left Guns N’ Roses is planning on hitting the road later in the year. “UK, you up for a late summer/early fall tour? Spain? Italy?” he wrote on the site.
