Slash Says No Fucking Way Weiland’s Back In Velvet Revolver

Someone must still care, right?

Slash has once again denounced rumors — as well as Scott Weiland’s blatant claims — that Velvet Revolver has mended fences with Scott for a new album and tour.

While on Eddie Trunk’s “Friday Night Rocks” radio show on New York’s Q104.3 FM yesterday, Slash told it how it is.

“I was doing a radio interview and we just rolled into town,” Slash said. “I got out of my [tour bus] bunk and I dropped my guys off and went straight to this radio station. So I’m acclimating to the morning show, which you know the energy levels of those morning guys. I’m trying to get the coffee in my system. And [the radio show host] starts saying something at one point where he goes, ‘So Scott Weiland’s back in Velvet Revolver. And how does that feel?’

“And I was like, ‘Woah! What?’ And he goes, ‘Yeah, Scott said you guys are writing together and you’re gonna be on the road by the end of the year.’ And I was just like, ‘Am I delirious? What are you saying?’”

Added Slash: “Anyway, then, which was a good thing, he played me a tape of the actual conversation with Scott saying all this stuff. I was like, ‘What the fuck?’ And that was it. And I called Duff, and I was like, ‘Duff, do you know anything about this?’ And Duff says, ‘I have no idea.’ So that was it. I was just in a state of shock.”

Slash says Scott and Dave Kushner have had talks, “so he’s been interested in burying the hatchet and getting back together and sort of juggling this whole STP/Velvet Revolver perfect-world thing. And I’m, like, there’s no way that’s gonna happen. I love Scott — he’s a great guy when I’m not in a band with him. I’d just like to keep it that way. So there’s no truth to this whole thing. [It’s been given] way more attention than it even deserves.”
