Scott Weiland hits back at Velvet Revolver rumors

And the feud continues!

Apparently, Scott Weiland didn’t care too much for the “veiled trickery” of his fellow ex-bandmates in Velvet Revolver.

Scott says in a statement to MTV.com, “After reading the comment by Duff, Matt, Dave and the illustrious Guitar Hero, Saul Hudson, a.k.a. Slash, 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 20th in Glasgow.”

“In response to Slash’s comment regarding my commitment (to the band), I have to say it is a blatant and tired excuse to cover up the truth. The truth of the matter is that the band had not gotten along on multiple levels for some time. I choose to look forward to the future and performing with a group of friends I have known my entire life, people who have always had my back. This also speaks of my commitment to my music and my fellow bandmates in (Stone Temple Pilots) and 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.” Weiland goes on to warns fans not to be “fooled by veiled trickery” and offering up a suggestion for his replacement, saying, “I think Sebastian Bach would be a fantastic choice.”

Could you imagine Sebastian Bach fronting Velvet Revolver?!??

Update: Considering the alternatives, I actually could picture Bas as the singer in VR. He rocks!
