Weiland "Wives were beginning of VR's downfall"


Recommended Posts

Details: You feuded with Axl Rose after you formed VELVET REVOLVER with his former GUNS N' ROSES bandmates. Now that you've left that group less than amicably, do you want to trade war stories with Axl?

Weiland: We came close to getting together one time. I had wondered if he was the center of all their problems or if it was a mixed bag — and it was definitely the latter. When VELVET REVOLVER first got together it was great. I got to know the guys before: Met Duff [McKagan] at the gym, because he loves to work out and I was obsessed with running. I was in rehab with Matt [sorum]. I'd only met Slash twice — he's not the most social person. We had all been through the same experiences, and it felt like a gang. But everyone was a rock star. There were petty jealousies. Then the wives got involved with the business of the band, and that was the beginning of the downfall.
