In a recent interview with Sp1at.com, VELVET REVOLVER drummer Matt Sorum (ex-GUNS N' ROSES, THE CULT) was asked if VR had recorded any new material. He replied, "We actually just recorded a new song this week for an upcoming major motion picture release that you will be hearing about shortly."

When asked to compare vocalists Axl Rose, Ian Astbury and Scott Weiland, Matt said, "What they all have in common is a great ability to entertain a crowd. They each bring a different passion to the songs that they perform, and each one realizes that it is a rock show, not just a songfest. It's pretty amazing when I consider that I have been blessed to play drums behind three of the greatest frontmen of all time."

Matt also cast doubt on an end-of-year release date for VELVET REVOLVER's sophomore album. He said, "We are not going to have much studio time until September, now that we have added the Ozzfest dates."

Dude, Velvet revolver rules but to compare Ian Astbury and Scott Weiland, to Axl Rose is a discrace. Axl is a musical genius, and a much better frontman than either of those two. Slash, Duff, and Matt need to bite the bullet and get GNR reformed, how it should be!

I don't know Gabe Axl has no respect for his band mates and did not write every note of every song Hell their biggest hit (sweet child o mine)came about accidently.Slash goofing off and Axl herd it and put lyric's about his girlfriend to it.Also Scott and Ian are way better singers I've seen all three live.Axl is the only one that does not sound excatly the same live as he does recorded.the only reason GNR is not together is Axl .

Ian Astbury is a way better vocalist than Axl. Weiland is as equally as good as Astbury.

YEPPER.Now I wonder If we could get another Sonic Temple out of those guy's.I realize that kind of magic almost never happens twice but it would be great if THE CULT made a comeback.sh** Billy Idols got another record out.Rumor has it it's not bad(haven't heard it yet) probably his best since rebel hell If he can do it they can too.

I'm suddenly not feeling bad about not being able to attend.However I doubt that's true unless this band is on the record label that Will and Jada are apparently starting.

Yeah, I just read that at Blabbermouth. You what? I don't really care. This band hasn't toured much. I've only heard two songs by them, which remind me a bit of some heavy rock/soul, but if that's what Jada Pinkett Smith wants to do, let her.
