Slash Sacked Weiland For Turning Into Rose

VELVET REVOLVER star SLASH sacked the band's former frontman SCOTT WEILAND because he became too much like his former bandmate, GUNS N' ROSES rocker AXL ROSE.
Slash sensationally quit Guns N' Roses in 1996 after a series of rows with Rose, who has a reputation for being extremely volatile and difficult to work with.
And the legendary axeman recently fired Weiland from Velvet Revolver, blaming his "increasingly erratic onstage behaviour and personal problems" for the shock move.
Slash insists Weiland had begun to take on many of Rose's traits, including being constantly late on stage - something which the Guns N' Roses frontman is famous for.
He says, "There were a few similarities (between Weiland and Rose). What became really irritating was that I had the same problem with Scott as I had when I toured with Axl.
"I just couldn't get the guy on stage on time. That, I can't accept. I will not do it again.
"I will not be in a situation where a guy is making the audience wait for an hour, or more. It's criminal. I don't know who he thinks he is when he tried to get away with that sort of thing."

He said this, He said that! I came up with the name of the band! He didn’t show up on time!I quit the Band! NO, we kicked you out!Excuses, Blah, Blah, Blah…..Honestly, Velvet Revolver was a product of EGO and nothing more!It always takes more than one guy to cause a problem! Super Talented Guys – Great Music ---- BUT----Stroking away at each other’s EGOS and let’s see who wins the game of “Who’s got the Bigger Ego?”BE A BAND, ACT LIKE A BAND….. Accept each other’s flaws and whine no more!!!!!!Just an opinion from a true fan.......

I can't stand Scott Weiland. He's a worthless, talentless heroin addict. He should never in any way be compared to Axl. He probably had dreams of being as talented as Axl but it's never going to happen. Also, Slash had a bigger drug problem than Axl, maybe part of the problem lies with him as well. I mean 2 completely different singers, 2 completely different personalities and neither want to show up on time and do a show with you?
