Slash about Velvet Revolver situation
Slash was asked to share an update on the status of Velvet Revolver as he promotes his third solo album, "World On Fire." Velvet Revolver released two albums, including 2004's "Contraband" and 2007's "Libertad", but have remained inactive since the 2008 departure of singer Scott Weiland, who returned to Stone Temple Pilots and was then fired by that group in 2013.
"We started working with Scott for that period and we made some cool music, but it was just a really, really hard thing to keep together, that exact lineup," Slash tells Radio.com. "When you're cutting off your nose to spite your face, there's a point there where it's, like, 'You've gotta either get it together or we're not gonna suffer through this.'"
"A lot of people are asking questions, and it's been very active under the radar," adds Slash. "I mean, nothing has happened with it as far as getting a new singer, so there's nothing to talk about. But there is activity going on, and there's people that we've been checking out. At some point the right guy's gonna walk in the door, and at that point, then we'll look into making another Velvet record."
