Scott Weiland’s Regret Over His Final Velvet Revolver Show

During Stone Temple Pilots’ unofficial status in 2013, there were rumors that circulated around Scott Weiland and whether he was fired from the band own not. While all this was going on, the singer was on tour with his solo band Wildabouts. However, Scott later revealed in a Q&A session with USA TODAY that he was neither fired nor the band had split, on the contrary, they were discussing when they should tour next.

Besides sharing his side of the Stone Temple Pilots drama, he also talked about his former band, Velvet Revolver. The singer revealed that he would love it if there was a reunion however, he also understands that Slash wants to be successful at this solo journey.

Even though Weiland expressed his positive outlook on a Velvet Revolver reunion, he also shared the last Europe show he did with the band that he still had regrets about. The rocker said:

“Nobody is perfect, but I do regret some of the things that I said, as I’m sure some of the other people do. Matt [Sorum] and I did get into an argument at the last show we played. I do remember saying something from the stage like, ‘This is the last Velvet Revolver show that I will ever do,’ and that I was quitting. I regret saying that.”

The singer shared that his words came out in a high-pressure moment. Scott revealed that in hindsight, he could have handled the situation better by adding:

“It was something that I said in the heat of the moment. I did not . . . it embarrassed them. I shouldn’t have done that. It was an immature move. If I could take it back, I would. I still feel like something will happen. If it doesn’t, there’s other things to do.”
