Do you know where you are? You’re in the rumor mill, baby.
Scott Weiland is acting like Scott “Why Not?” when it comes to a reunion of Guns N’ Roses’ classic lineup. The former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver frontman tells Alternative Press that the legendary rock band are set to get back together with the late-’80s and early-’90s lineup that made them famous.
The full Q&A will reportedly be posted on Alternative Press later today, but the site teased snippets of the chat over the weekend. Weiland and Slash worked together in Velvet Revolver, and was answering a question about his one-time feud with Axl Rose when he went all in on what could be one of the bigger rock reunions of the past few decades.
“I remember a little bit about it,” Weiland says of his feud. “There was a little going back and forth between the two of us at the time, but I think that Guns N’ Roses are getting back together.”
Weiland was apparently pressed for more info, and says: “I just heard that… I think Slash is actually a bigger star right now than Axl.”
Of course, this all jives with some playful comments Slash made to the press back in August. “It was probably way overdue, you know,” the guitarist said of a reconciliation with Rose. “But it’s, you know, it’s very cool at this point. You know, let some of that, sort of, negative … dispel some of that negative stuff that was going on for so long.”
