I have recently heard rumors of a VR reuinon. I read that Scott Weiland made a statement that Stone Temple Pilots are taking a breather and now would be the right time for Velvet Revolver to get back together. Hmmm…that would be cool. I was always a fan of the Velvet Revolver sound. Again we come to that place where a band can only be the members that formed it. I have had the discussion before about revolving band members. I think that Velvet Revolver is and can only be: Slash, Duff McKagen, Matt Sorum, Dave Kushner, and Scott Weiland. What’s your take? This is a reunion I would love to see! However, I have heard Slash say it’s a no go…..let’s hope.
