Slash Speaks Out
A UK rock magazine has published an exclusive interview with VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash about the group’s decision to part ways with singer Scott Weiland and its future plans.
This is what Slash had to say:
‘He [Scott] didn’t know that we were already planning on extraditing him…he was supposed to go to rehab, so we postponed our Austrailian tour but he didn’t really go to rehab. That was the final blow…We gave him the cold shoulder in the UK like nobody’s business. There were a couple of arguments around the stage, but other than that, nobody spoke to him. I imagine he was quite uncomfortable. No wonder he didn’t have a good time. Then he told everyone in Glasgow that the whole band was over. We were like, ‘Oh, well, I guess we’ve got a surprise coming for you, Scott.’
