    Default Scott Weiland booted from Velvet Revolver

    Scott Weiland Booted From Velvet Revolver

    Rock supergroup Velvet Revolver have officially axed Scott Weiland as their frontman because the singer isn't "100 percent committed" to the band.
    The group has been feuding publicly for the past month, after Weiland missed a string of concerts to attend rehab - and then the frontman announced the end of Velvet Revolver during a Scottish gig on March 20.
    His bandmates have since dismissed his comments, prompting a war of words online between Weiland and drummer Matt Sorum. Guitarist Slash recently hinted that the future of Velvet Revolver might not include Weiland, who recently reformed his previous band Stone Temple Pilots.
    And now, in a band statement, it appears Weiland has left the group.
    The statement reads: "This band is all about its fans and its music and Scott Weiland isn't 100 percent committed to either. Among other things, his increasingly erratic onstage behaviour and personal problems have forced us to move on."
    Meanwhile, Stone Temple Pilots are expected to announce their reunion schedule at a press conference at magician Harry Houdini's fabled mansion in Los Angeles next week. The mansion is now owned by producer Rick Rubin.

    I liked STP, but I'm surprised they're reforming. Hope it's not some piecemeal job and it's the whole band.

    Actually, Slash, Matt, and Duff should all go back to their old band and see what they can do for it, too.

    I'm surprised Weiland is still alive. He may be the new Keith Richards as far as drug use/longevity is concerned.

    It is unfortunate that Weiland has yet again relapsed on Heroin, and his life is falling apart yet again. I doubt at this point, that the STP reunion will take place either. That band also booted him due to his Heroin addiction.

    I remember reading an article maybe like 4 months ago, where he sounded so proud & so HONESTLY 100% committed to his sobriety. Then soon after, i read about him crashing his car & being arrested for being on drugs. I really thought he had gotten it together, finally. But, to change one word & paraphrase Rick James (and Grimm--on the David Cook threat), "Heroin is a hell of a drug!"

    I'm sorry to hear that he has relapsed again. He is the energizer bunny of heroin.

    It's amazing that he is still alive.

    I love both VR and STP. Scott has had so much success, too bad drugs are ruining it. I wish he could kick the addiction, I love watching him in concert.
    I'm not quite drunk enough to really care, but is this her violation of her violation of her violation of her violation of probation or her violation of her violation of her violation of her probation????? ~MontanaMama on LL's latest arrest.

    Too bad - he's really talented. I can't believe he's 40 years old. I never thought he'd make it.

    IMO Scott had one of the greatest voices in Rock. Sadly he can't keep the monkey off his back. STP had announced a tour before this came out so I think he might have walked before they booted him. Hate to say it but I doubt STP will make the whole tour given the shape he appears to be in.

    Thank GAWD he's going back to Stone temple Pilots, because Velvet Revolver sucks and STP is one of my favorite bands of all time.

    I think Slash was more of an alcoholic than a druggie though?

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    It's bad when other junkies tell you that you've gone too far.
