VELVET REVOLVER: MTV U.K. Footage Posted Online

An MTV News U.K. report consisting of interview and live footage of VELVET REVOLVER taped during their appearance at El Rey Theater in Los Angeles last week has been posted online at this location (Windows Media format, file size: approx. 2 MB).

As previously reported, VELVET REVOLVER — the new band formed by STONE TEMPLE PILOTS singer Scott Weiland and former GUNS N' ROSES members Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum — have five original songs in the can, and have about 50 tunes in various forms of completion. The band hope to do some touring in the summer and release an album by the end of the year. So far, they do not have a record contract, and are keeping their options open. The group's song "Set Me Free", which is featured on Decca/Universal's soundtrack to "The Hulk", is among the most-requested tracks on alternative stations WBCN in Boston and KROQ in Los Angeles, and is one of the most-downloaded tunes on Apple's new iTunes download service.
