Another smackhead bites the dust.
Go get help scott...before you die.
I Saw you in Bridgeport ....all 90 pounds of you.
The rest of the band should know that herion
will just ruin you. ITS NOT COOL, and people that
just watch someone ruin themselves are just as much
to blame. So don't blame scott, blame the band.
They went through it before.

Good, Slash is the best guitarist to come along in the last 20 years. After dealing with head cases like Axl Rose and Scott Weiland, maybe he and the band can find a descent lead singer who puts fans first and their own egos last!

Well, I think it is for the best.. and I hope that Scott gets the help he truly needs because drugs, especially heroin, is an achilles heel for everyone.. and it is hard to beat.. but I am sure if he puts his mind to it, he can do it because, despite anything else, I think he rocked with STP and at the beginning with Velvet Revolver.. Slash is an amazing guitarist and the band was kicking *ss in the beginning..

My heart goes to Scott and I hope he gets the help he needs to get out of this situation.

I'm very sad that the band can't make things work out. I saw them 4 times and they were incredible. Scott Weiland is an awesome front man with awesome talent and energy. However, I can't wait to see STP reunite. I wish all the guys, especially Scott Weiland great things in their futures.

Scott Weiland will be missed, Hope they keep the peace,This things happen all the time within very talented people, There will be disagreements. Velvet Revolver will move forward without him, Who knows, Change is good?.

chris cornell should completely replace him. go from one unique singer to another. except this time, one that is both awesome, and normal. instead of just awesome. he would change their sound, but in a good way.

I think they need some new blood not a another known Rockstar !!! I just did a search on Rattleface and that Kevin Jones guy is amazing !
He has long hair and is really hot !! He'd bring a hard edge back to Slash and the band and his voice is off the hook !!!! I've never heard of him before but oh my God what a voice !!

I just saw the video on youtube of Brian Phyll Miller getting a lot of press regarding VR
Kevin Jones of Rattleface Blows this guy away right off the face of the earth !!!
I have heard and seen Jones sing VR songs live as well as ripping GNR's Axl a new ass !! there is no question that if Velvet Revolver actually gives Jones a chance that he'll be their new singer - as he is a mixture of Chris Cornell and Steven Tyler ......... Jones shreds on guitar as well he's a real musician and I know that VR's Mgr has Jones Package in hand and has given it to the band !!!!
