Although the band has not been active since 2008, ever since firing him, singer Scott Weilandis ready for a Velvet Revolver reunion. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Weiland explained, "I think it's the perfect time for Velvet Revolver to get back together. Slash has done some great things, and I look forward to the opportunity to seeing him on my left and seeingDuff McKagan -- who, in my opinion, is without a doubt one of the greatest rock 'n' roll and punk rock bass players of all time . . . And with Matt (Sorum) and Dave (Kushner) as well, who are just incredible musicians. I think that's exciting to look forward to."
SIDE NOTES: What's going on with Stone Temple Pilots? Weiland said, "I think we kind of overplayed ourselves by playing the same set over and over. I think the band needs to take some time off and be creative again . . . I don't think that touring consistently with a greatest hits package gets you anywhere. It diminishes things."
