Velvet Revolver

Velvet Revolver is a super-band containing ex-members of Guns n' Roses and Stone Temple Pilots. The Guns n' Roses faction originally started the band with code name "The Project", and their search for a singer was filmed by VH1. They finally found a perfect match in Stone Temple Pilots' Scott Weiland, and released their debut album Contraband in June 2004.

Velvet Revolver have been playing a lot of live shows lately, and featured at the Live 8 concert in London's Hyde Park in 2005.

I gotta say that I was never a GNR fan. That was not because I thought them talentless, I just am not a fan of Axl Rose's voice. I had always loves Scott Weiland. I thought he was a hugely talented frontman and he will always be missed. RIP Scott

Doesn't matter what I am doing, Scott Weiland's voice is comforting to me. He will always remind me of a time in my life when music was all that mattered. I am a forever fan of Scott's!

whoever said velvet revolver will never be as good as guns n' roses is either smoking crack or is just a straight up idiot!vr is just as awesome(if not better) than guns n' roses!so just shut your trap, 'cause you don't know what you're talking about!

Velvet Revolver are a good band, but will never be as good as Gun's and Roses. They rock nevertheless and are still awesome!

Velvet Revolver has a wicked sound. It's upbeat and been waiting too long. If you haven't heard their music yet, hey, get going and get it!
