Slash: ‘Velvet Revolver might continue without Scott Weiland’

Guitarist says the group are not splitting up

Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash has said that, despite recent reports of his band being in turmoil, they are not splitting up – although singer Scott Weiland may not be in the band for much longer.

As previously reported on NME.COM, Velvet Revolver’s Scott Weiland and drummer Matt Sorum fell out after a recent gig in Glasgow, with Weiland suggesting that the band may never tour again.

Since the bust-up, Slash has told the Daily Star that the band will record another album, but possibly without the singer.


“There will be a third album,” he said. “We don’t know how or when but the core four guys will continue.”
