Yeah, he’s out.
Says Slash in a press release issued Tuesday:
“This band is all about its fans and its music and Scott Weiland isnâ€™t 100% committed to either. Among other things, his increasingly erratic onstage behavior and personal problems have forced us to move on.”
If this is an April Fool’s joke — and I don’t think it is — it’s a really stupid one.
Because, come on, you’d dump Scott Weiland, too. Heroin addicts are only cute for so long.
Velvet Revolver plans to replace Weiland with a new vocalist; they are not splitting up. Weiland will still be hitting the road with STP this summer.
