VELVET REVOLVER: More Details Surface About 'Fantastic Four' Soundtrack Contribution
According to the Cleveland Scene, VELVET REVOLVER entered Lakewood, Ohio's Lava Room Recordings on May 16 to finish recording "Come On Come In", a track for the upcoming "Fantastic Four" soundtrack. The group got into town in the afternoon, and singer Scott Weiland and producer Doug Grean immediately hit the studio to finish vocals for the track. Lava Room partner and chief engineer Mike Brown engineered the session.
"It's a great track," says Brown. "It's pretty aggressive. Scott was really rippin'. He did a few megaphone parts, bringing some of the STONE TEMPLE PILOTS parts to the band. They were definitely professionals. Scott's really serious about what he does, a real perfectionist. They were very easy to work with. We had a good time."
While the newly sober Weiland was working, ex-Gunners Slash and Duff McKagan were hanging at Rockstar, the upstairs bar at Peabody's that's been visited in recent months by members of HOOBASTANK, THE USED, and SLIPKNOT. Former GNR guitarist Gilby Clarke was playing Peabody's that night, and Duff joined Clarke's band for sleazy renditions of GUNS' "It's So Easy" and the STOOGES' "I Wanna Be Your Dog". Slash then joined the band for a cover of THE BEATLES' "Helter Skelter", and Clark stepped back in for Dylan's "Knockin' on Heaven's Door".
