As the Rock n' Roll world waits for a new Guns n' Roses spin-off project, rumors have been swirling about a Velvet Revolver reunion, which would include lead singer Scott Weiland.
Weiland, of Stone Temple Pilots fame, left Velvet Revolver in 2008, citing ego and jealousy as the reasons for his departure.
On Monday, May 14, Revolver fans got teased, as multiple news outlets produced stories reporting that Weiland and the rest of the band had reconciled and that there would be a full-on reunion.
Recently, Weiland told ABC News Radio that the band, which includes former Guns N' Roses members Slash, Matt Sorum, and Duff McKagan, was 'able to put egos and differences and old...conflicts aside and so that's really cool,' wrote Consequence of Sound.
The website also went on to report that Velvet Revolver was currently at work on a new LP. If true, the album would mark the band's third to date following 2007′s Libertad.
They gave me a couple of songs and myself and [guitarist] Dave [Kushner] and [bassist] Duff [McKagan] are gonna be getting together for a song writing session next week, Weiland said, according to COS.
Unfortunately these rumors were shot down when Slash refuted Weiland's comment in an interview with Minneapolis radio station 93x.
In the interview, slash would not confirm a reunion with Weiland and event went on to say that He's (Scott Weiland) out of his mind.
Slash then suggested that Maybe they (Weiland and Matt Sorum) know something I don't.
Earlier this year, the band did in fact reunite for a one-time performance at a benefit concert for John O'Brien in Los Angeles.
As of now, no official long-standing reunion has been announced nor confirmed.
