A wisecracking Scott Weiland responded to Velvet Revolver's split-up statement today, saying, "I find it humorous that the so called four 'founding members' of Velvet Revolver would decide to move on without me after I had already claimed the group dead in the water on March 20 in Glasgow."
Weiland went on to explain the thought process behind his decision to reunite with the rest of Stone Temple Pilots. "I chose to look forward to the future and performing with a group of friends I have known my entire life. This also speaks to my commitment 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."
As for Weiland's suggestion for a possible Velvet Revolver replacement, he said, "Good hunting lads, I think Sebastian Bach would be a fantastic choice."
