Slash say's there's "No Truth" to Scott Weiland's claims he's rejoining Velvet Revolver

Mon, 21 May 2012
Last week, news broke that Velvet Revolver & former singer Scott Weiland had reunited.

ABC News Radio released a report to say the Stone Temple Pilots frontman had revealed, "We've all grown a lot. We're able to put egos and differences and old… conflicts aside and so that's really cool."

The former Velvet Revolver singer went on to add, "They gave me a couple of new songs and myself and Dave Kushner and Duff McKagan are gonna be getting together for a songwriting session next week."

However, when guitarist Slash was asked by Minnesota radio station 93X if Weiland had rejoined the band he was stunned by the "news".  

On Friday evening, Slash appeared on New York radio station Q104.3 FM Eddie Trunk's "Friday Night Rocks" show and explained that the 93x Morning show host had played him the tape of Scott Weiland's announcement "I was like, 'What the f…?' 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." he says.

"I talked to Dave Kushner and he said that he and Scott had some conversations at some point about getting back together." he continues to explain, "He's been interested in burying the hatchet and getting back together and sort of juggling this whole STP/VELVET REVOLVER perfect-world thing.

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."

No official announcement has been made from the band.
