VELVET REVOLVER frontman Scott Weiland has posted the following message on the group's web site:
"If there was a turning point for me over the last year and a half it was the day 'Fall To Pieces' was written. The night before, I had just gotten arrested. It wasn't the first time obviously, but to the point of which I had sunk in my soul had seemed as if there was a bottomless oblivion that I would never be able to crawl out of. I had lost my wife and children recently, my old band [STONE TEMPLE PILOTS] had fallen apart, and now the spectre of losing my freedom loomed over me like dark heavy wet blankets. The only thing positive in my life was the new band VELVET REVOLVER. New blood. New start. The song symbolizes both. It really is the cornerstone of this record for me; if it wouldn't have happened, the record wouldn't have happened. The only way to be real about the subject matter of the song was to tell the truth on film. It wasn't hard to sell this to the band, they lived it with me. I felt Kevin Kerslake would be the only director that could possibly get me to the point of reliving some of those narcotic nightmares and re-drudging some of the pain out of the old wounds that have healed from [wife] Mary's and my 12-year relationship. In short, it was the most difficult video I've ever done from a fear perspective, yet at times with beautiful, sweet memories that are chronicled on paper and in the heart and mind. All in all it was somethin' else! 'She's still my little Rock-n-Roll'"
