Slash is shutting the door on working with another singer. This time it's Scott Weiland. Weiland and Slash were a part of the 2000s supergroup, Velvet Revolver. Weiland was fired from the band in 2008, but has hinted that he would reunite with the group which is composed of former Guns N' Roses members, Slash, Duff McKagan, and Matt Sorum (in addition to Dave Kushner).
The formers members of Guns N' Roses were not new to struggles with singers. They all struggled to deal with Axl Rose and Slash has said that a GNR reunion would happen. Now, it appears that Slash feels the same way about Velvet Revolver, at least when it comes to working with Scott Weiland. He tells Classic Rock Magazine:
“I think at this point Scott just got fired from STP and I think he’s trying to pull off that trick of trying to get something else going on, and we’re not buying it. The door’s shut on this side and it’s probably shut on that side too, so he’s on his own. And he deserves it too...Even if I didn’t have my solo thing going on, I still wouldn’t work with him.”
Weiland, best known as the lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots, reunited with the popular 1990s band after leaving Velvet Revolver. No member of STP has confirmed Slash's claim that Weiland was fired from the band.
