VELVET REVOLVER members - Slash, Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum and Dave Kushner - have announced that they are parting ways with singer Scott Weiland.
Weiland has issued the following statement to EW.com:
"After reading the comment by Duff, Matt, Dave and the illustrious "GUITAR HERO," Saul Hudson, a.k.a Slash, I find it humorous that the so called four "founding members" of Velvet Revolver, better known to themselves as "the Project" before I officially named the band, would decide to move on without me after I had already claimed the group dead in the water on March 20 in Glasgow.
"In response to Slash's comment regarding my commitment, I have to say it is a blatant and tired excuse to cover up the truth.
"The truth of the matter is that the band had not gotten along on multiple levels for some time. On a musical level, there were moments of joy, inspiration, fun... at times, but let's not forget the multiple trips to rehab every member of the band had taken (with the exception of one member, no need to mention his name).
"Personally speaking, I choose to look forward to the future and performing with a group of friends I have known my entire life, people who have always had my back.
"This also speaks to my commitment to my music and my fellow band mates in STP and to the fans who I feel would much rather watch a group of musicians who enjoy being together as opposed to a handful of discontents who at one time used to call themselves a gang.
"p.s. - don't be fooled by veiled trickery
"p.p.s - good hunting lads, I think Sebastian Bach would be a fantastic choice."
The statement from Slash regarding the split is as follows:
'This band is all about its fans and its music and Scott Weiland isn't 100 per cent committed to either
"Among other things, his increasingly erratic on-stage behaviour and personal problems have forced us to move on."
