Yhdysvaltalaisen rockia soittavan Velvet Revolverin kitaristi Slash on lytännyt täysin Scott Weilandin väitteen, jonka mukaan mies olisi palannut yhtyeen riveihin takaisin. Lue lisää nähdäksesi Slashin haastattelu, jossa mieheltä kysyttiin aiheesta.
”I was doing a radio interview [with the ’Half-Assed Morning Show’ on the Minneapolis, Minnesota radio station 93X on Monday, May 14] and we just rolled into town,” Slash said. ”I got out of my [tour bus] bunk and I dropped my guys off and went straight to this radio station. So I’m acclimating to the morning show, which you know the energy levels of those morning guys. I’m trying to get the coffee in my system. And [the radio show host] starts saying something at one point where he goes, ’So Scott Weiland’s back in VELVET REVOLVER. And how does that feel?’ And I was like, ’Woah! What?’ And he goes, ’Yeah, Scott said you guys are writing together and you’re gonna be on the road by the end of the year.’ And I was just like, ’Am I delirious? What are you saying?'”
”Anyway, then, which was a good thing, he played me a tape of the actual conversation with Scott saying all this stuff. I was like, ’What the f…?’ And that was it. And I called Duff, and I was like, ’Duff, do you know anything about this?’ And Duff says, ’I have no idea.’ So that was it. I was just in a state of shock.”
”I talked to Dave Kushner and he said that he and Scott had some conversations at some point about getting back together. But I remember that was sort of Scott’s M.O. when we did that reunion thing [VELVET REVOLVER reunited for a short performance at the January ’Love You Madly: A Concert For John O’Brien’ at the House Of Blues in West Hollywood, California. (see video below) — Ed.] So he’s been interested in burying the hatchet and getting back together and sort of juggling this whole STP/VELVET REVOLVER perfect-world thing. And I’m, like, there’s no way that’s gonna happen. I love Scott — he’s a great guy when I’m not in a band with him. I’d just like to keep it that way. So there’s no truth to this whole thing. [It’s been given] way more attention than it even deserves.”
