Recently Fired Velvet Revolver Singer Scott Weiland To Host At Prive

Singer Scott Weiland, who was bounced from Velvet Revolver last week for essentially being a douche, will host a party at Privé (Planet Hollywood) this Saturday, April 12.

The appearance by the continually embattled Weiland is quite interesting, given Planet Hollywood being saddled with the 'home of the has beens' honor. With Weiland dangling in the nethersphere between Velvet Revolverdom and the precipice of a new onslaught by reformed grungers Stone Temple Pilots, this club booking offers a little bridge gap insurance for his future 'has-been-ness' in case the STP retread gets the kibosh.

Reasons for STP going DOA: Scott having another chemically enhanced car accident (he's had 4 in the past three years). Scott going to the slammer for fighting with his wife (another recurring behavior.) Scott cooks up a little too much heroin than his body can handle (his prime demon.)

Why the folks at Hard Rock hasn't booked Scott to host Rehab is surely one of the biggest blunders ever. He could hit the vice trifecta by driving his car into the pool all spun up on junk, hop out, then beat the crap outta his wife and storm off. I'd definitely pay to see that.

Anyways, the Stoned Turd Pilots have announced the first five dates of their comeback tour, which currently include stops in Camden NJ, Mohegan Sun, Holmdel, Tweeter Center in Boston and St. Paul MN.

All joking aside... Vasoline has some of the meatiest sludge groove syncopations ever. Scott's got the Johnny Depp doing Hunter S. Thompson on Ether wiggle down too. Check:

Comments & Discussion:

I just saw F & L again a couple of weekends ago. It's definitely an acquired taste. Weiland's got similar moves , but Johnny (like the king) is the original wiggler.
