Scott Weildand Looks to Velvet Revolver Reunion

Scott Weiland Looks to Velvet Revolver Reunion -

After remaining in a kind of hard-rock limbo for the past five years, Velvet Revolver now appear to be closer to a reunion than ever before, according to Scott Weiland.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, the Stone Temple Pilot frontman said he may rejoin the supergroup .

"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. 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."

He went on:

"I think it's the perfect time for Velvet Revolver to get back together. 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 & 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 (drummer) Matt (Sorum) and (guitarist) 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."

In related news Weiland also revealed that he hopes his solo band, which now goes by the name of Scott Weiland and the Wildabouts, will get to work on a new studio album and also plan to hit the road for a US tour.
