Velvet Revolver, their new album is called Contraband. It's to be released June 8 I think. The line-up includes - Slash (GN'R), Duff McKagan (GN'R), Matt Sorum (GN'R), Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Piolets), Dave Kushner. I've not heard any of their stuff yet but I'm looking forward to.

The album got 3/5 in Classic Rock btw.

you can watch the video for 'slither' on their website. got a good riff, decent solo (although similar to sweet child). not a bad song at all.

Aloha !

Not a bad band at all, plus the record company has got big plans for them and a huge marketingcampain might start. I really really hope they will be touring Europe soon. I've got a bootleg from one of their American shows and they're really good !

Salaam Aleikum,
Sebastiaan

Slither is a pretty good song, although all I can remember offhand at the moment is Duff's backing vocals

Keep On Rockin'

I just saw the video on their website, cheers Richie. Yes, it does have a typical Slash solo. A good song, I'm looking forward to getting the album now.

Umm, not bad, but I expecterd more. Never mind, maybe the album's great. I'm not too much of a fan of Slash without Axl, he just doesn't ROCK any more, it's like page without plant, or Perry without Tyler, the magic seems to dissapear...

Based on few bootlegs I have, Velvet Revolver is very promising. They even play few GNR tunes, nice bonus

here's an example on their set:

1- Intro
2- Sucker Train Blues
3- Do It For The Kids
4- Headspace
5- Crackerman
6- Illegal I
7- Its So Easy
8- Fall To Pieces
9- Big Machine
10- Set Me Free
11- Encore Break #1
12- Used To Love Her
13- Slither
14- Sex Type Thing
15- Encore Break #2
16- You Could Be Mine [intro]/Mr. Brownstone
17- Negative Creep
