Scott Weiland: ‘I Wish Velvet Revolver All The Best’
May 12, 2010
Rocker Scott Weiland refuses to feel bitter about his dismissal from Velvet Revolver, insisting he wishes his former band mates “all the best.”
Weiland was kicked out of the group in April 2008 following a series of arguments with founders Slash, Matt Sorum and Duff McKagan. The drama has played out in the press, but Weiland is eager to clarify he holds no “resentment” towards his former co-stars – and hopes they can move on from his firing.
He tells Kerrang! magazine, “It was a great experience until near the end. I think we made some great music – and I actually prefer our second album to our first – and I don’t hold any resentment towards any of the guys in the band. I really wish them all the best.”
The band has yet to find a replacement for Weiland despite auditioning a string of singers over the last two years.
