What does everyone think of Velvet Revolver? I personally think they kick a LOT of ass. I saw their performance on David Letterman last night and being as critical as I am about performances, I was extremely surprised and happy. It's weird to see Slash and Duff and Matt without Axl but Axl is like... no. Anyway, back to the performance -- Slash was GREAT so I was even happier and Scott Weiland gave quite a nice performance. Opinions, anyone? When the CD comes out on the 8th, I'm definitely buying it. Is anyone else?

I'm torn on whether I should give them a try or not. I'm not too keen to Weiland, but the Guns part interests me.

I was a bit hesitant when I first heard "Slither" but I slowly grew to like it and with all the hype surrounding this group I gave it a go. And I'm glad I did because my new obsession is Guns N' Roses so now I have two different Slash's to listen to.

I <3 Slash. Haha :D

You do realize that he had another band after GnR which would then give you 3 Slash's to love.

Of course because it is Slash... who cares about any other members of that group??

I like them! I am a fan of STP, And I think Slash is WAY too good a guitarist to sit around and do nothing! From what I've heard of them, I will have to get the album. "Set Me Free" is quite cool. ;D

You can watch their performance from letterman. It's on their website (VR's that is) :)

Despite being a massive G 'n R fan, Iam fairly indifferent to VR - from what I've heard they sound far more like STP than Guns. I'll still get the album, but the songs of theirs I've heard so for (Slither, Set me free) don't fill me with any great anticipation. I'm actually looking forward more to the collection of pre- G n'R demos being released soon.

They feature prominently in this week's episode of PBS's "Frontline" entitled 'The Way The Music Died'.

It's all about how tough it is to survive in the music industry due to downloading, having to make edited versions for Wal Mart, things like that.

Velvet Revolver are part of a segment near the middle of the show which deals with the inner workings of promoting a new band and getting their first CD out.

I believe Frontline runs at different times, depending on your local PBS station and probably repeats at some point too. Check local listings for details.
