Former GUNS N' ROSES Guitarist Speaks Out On VELVET REVOLVER: Audio Available

Former GUNS N' ROSES and current VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash called radio station WBCN in Boston on Friday (June 6) for a short interview with the DJ. During the ensuing conversation, Slash explained how he got back together with fellow ex-Gunners Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum after everyone went their own way for a while, and revealed how STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer Scott Weiland eventually came to join the new group. Slash said the new group will likely play some live shows this summer to test out the material they have, and then head into the studio in September to record their debut album for an early 2004 release. He also said that there were three possible band names floating around and that VELVET REVOLVER was the most likely to be picked as the new name (as was eventually confirmed via an official announcement over the weekend).
