In a new Classic Rock Magazine interview, Slash said that he never had plans for a full fledged Velvet Revolver reunion with Scott Weiland, despite a 2012 one off reunion benefit performance. He discussed his solo album from 2010 and his mindset about Velvet Revolver.
“That period right there I was going, ‘Fuck. Now what am I going to do?’ Because, er, there was no chance Velvet was going to get back together. I don’t know if you know this, but when Velvet Revolver first started I was knee-deep in doing a solo record. I was playing with Steve Gorman on drums. Actually that was where Fall to Pieces started.”
He later said, “Anyways, I was back to that solo stuff. Back in that place where I really didn’t know what I was going to be doing. So that’s when I embarked on the solo record, and then I met Myles, and Myles turned into a relationship that spanned eight years now.”
