SLASH Says 'Fall To Pieces' Was Around Well Before VELVET REVOLVER

Launch Radio Networks is reporting that the success of "Fall To Pieces" has pleased all five members of VELVET REVOLVER. But the happiest may be guitarist Slash, who said he started writing the music for the song well before the band ever started. "When I first wrote it, it was before VELVET REVOLVER was even, I had no idea that that was around the corner," he told Launch. "I wrote it on my acoustic (guitar), and it seemed like it had some cool emotional content at the time, but it was one of those things where I, I thought, 'Eh, maybe, whatever,' you know? And so now that it is a single — and I, I've actually heard it on Top 40 radio — it's pretty funny, you know, just thinking about how that song came together."

VELVET REVOLVER singer Scott Weiland wrote the lyrics for "Fall To Pieces" while he was going through drug rehabilitation.

VELVET REVOLVER will release an expanded edition of their debut album, "Contraband", on Tuesday (Nov. 23) that features a bonus CD with three covers songs.
