What does everyone think of Velvet Revolver? I love them. Anyone else?

they are:-
Slash, Duff McGagan, and Matt Sorum (ex GnR)
Scott Weiland (ex Stone Temple Pilots)
and Dave Kushner (ex Wasted Youth)

and they sound great - my only hope is that they play some GnR numbers live - and make em sound better (not hard) than that farce that Oral sex is touring with under in the name of G n R

I think they're good. I can't wait to hear how their next album sounds.


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

Bought the CD and thought it was quite good, but after a few times it gets kinda boring.


You've never seen nothing like it, no never in your life. Like going up to heaven and then coming back alive.

Saw them in London last September, going to see them again in 11 days.

A good band on record ('Contraband' is a solid rock album, but with few stand out moments), and an excellent band live (on-stage amazing chemistry, and possibly the campiest frontman ever (yes, Scott Weiland can give Freddie a SERIOUS run for his money on that count. No, really).

Brenski - Their live repertoire currently includes 'It's So Easy' and 'Used to Hove her'

they are all of the talent from guns n roses
what axl rose (oral sex) has left is an empty farcical shell of a band

in fairness to velvet - it's quite a good debut album made better by the fact that the record company and management put a lot of pressure on them to get it out BEFORE the tour - hence some material is low key - but the music is quality none the less

Indeed.

They did a teaser introduction to Tie Your Mother Down which Brian seemed to like.
