Velvet Revolver Explain Slash's Missing Hat

VH1.com has an article that talks about Slash's missing signature tophat and some more about Velvet Revolver's debut album, Contraband, and frontman Scott Weiland's decision not to talk to the press. Here's a taste:
Like Metallica cutting their hair and Enrique Iglesias removing his mole, Slash losing his signature top hat in the Velvet Revolver publicity shots has hardly gone unnoticed.
The legendary guitarist and his bandmates would like to make it clear, however, that journalists who have noted a total absence are not entirely accurate.
"It makes occasional appearances," drummer Matt Sorum said backstage at the KROQ Weenie Roast.
"Sometimes it's just on the stage in the corner by itself, sometimes it's on me," guitarist Dave Kushner added.
"I just need it," Slash declared with a smile, hiding behind his long locks of hair, which have not changed. "I need it close by for security, in case I get overly shy, so I can pull it over my head."
The hat is traveling with Velvet Revolver on tour, but it's made few appearances, perhaps a sign of how comfortable the guitarist is onstage with his new band. And now that the group's debut album, Contraband, is in stores, Slash only expects to have more fun playing live.
