VELVET REVOLVER drummer Matt Sorum recently spoke to the Artisan News Service about the group's future plans following its much-publicized split with singer Scott Weiland in early April."We're coming out with something in a couple of weeks and I think it's going to surprise everybody," Sorum told the Artisan News Service. "It's exciting. We're moving forward. We're going to keep going and play rock 'n' roll and get a new guy singing, so we did it before we'll do it again." He added, "We're really seriously thinking about doing something online. Yeah, we got offered a couple of different television ideas you know. [TV producer] Mark Burnett called us and asked us to do that 'Rock Star' thing and we basically said no to that. We didn't feel it was right for us. No disrespect to him, but it just didn't feel right for what we want to do. As many years as we've tried to keep our integrity intact, we felt that wasn't the right forum for us to do it, so we got some ideas and we should have that news in a couple weeks." VELVET REVOLVER parted ways with vocalist Scott Weiland last month following a European tour. Weiland has now reunited with STONE TEMPLE PILOTS. Sorum is also part of the regular lineup of all-star covers act CAMP FREDDY, who played the fourth May residency at the Roxy in Los Angeles Thursday night (May 22).
