Velvet Revolver - Velvet Revolver Reform For Four-song Tribute To Late Friend

The original members of Velvet Revolver reunited for a benefit concert in Hollywood on Thursday night (12Jan12).
Fired frontman Scott Weiland hit the stage with his former bandmates for the first time since 2009 at the House of Blues tribute show to late musician John O'Brien.
The sold out Love You Madly benefit also featured sets by Maroon 5, Tom Morello, Sheryl Crow and Stephen Stills.
The event was organised by Velvet Revolver star Dave Kushner, who was O'Brien's best friend. The musician died last year (11).
The supergroup performed four songs and closed with a cover of Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here.
There are no plans for a permanent reunion as bandmates Slash and Duff MCKagan continue the search for Weiland's replacement.
