Weiland Hits Back At Rose
LATEST: VELVET REVOLVER frontman SCOTT WEILAND has unleashed a torrent of abuse on AXL ROSE, accusing the GUNS N' ROSES singer of trying to break up the supergroup. Rose recently claimed his former bandmate SLASH showed up at his door last October (05) with a view to patch up their differences, and poked fun at his new VELVET REVOLVER bandmates, calling DUFF MCKAGAN "spineless" and singer SCOTT WEILAND a "fraud". Writing on the rockers' website, velvetrevolver.com, Weiland insists Rose is a hypocrite who disappoints fans and is incapable of writing songs. He rants, "Get a new wig motherf**ker. I think I'll resist the urge to 'stoop' to your level. Don't think for a second we don't know where those words came from. "Your unoriginal, uncreative little mind, the same mind that had to rely on its bandmates to write melodies and lyrics. Who's the fraud now bitch?" "Damn, I couldn't imagine people writing for me. How many albums have you put out man and how long did it take the current configuration of this so-called 'band' to make this album? How long? And without the only guys that validated the name. How dare you! Shame on you! "How dare you call our bass player 'spineless'. We toured our album over a year and a half. How many shows have you played over the last ten years? Oh, that's right - you bailed out on your long awaited comeback tour, leaving your remaining fans feeling shall we say a trifle miffed? "What we're talking about here is a frightened little man who once thought he was king, but unfortunately this king without his court is nothing but a memory of the a*shole he once was. Yours truly, Scott Weiland."
