Velvet Revolver at Live 8

Velvet Revolver rose somewhat from the ashes of 80�s rock band Guns and Roses. The Velvet Revolver idea came about after Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum (formally of Guns N� Roses) played a benefit concert for fellow musician Randy Castillo in 2002. Inspired by their little project, they set about to find a permanent singer for Velvet Revolver. The recruitment process was filmed by VH1. Unfortunately, after a number of auditions, a lead singer was not found.

Scott Weiland, (lead singer of Stone Temple Pilots) heard the material and offered his services as the lead singer and the Velvet Revolver clicked. Dave Kushner of the 80's punk band, Wasted Youth was added and Velvet Revolver was born.

(It turns out that Slash had suggested the name 'Revolver' for the project and Weiland suggested the addition of 'Velvet' to the title; thus Velvet Revolver.)

Velvet Revolver recorded its first song "Set Me Free" for The Hulk soundtrack in 2003. Velvet Revolver were also responsible for a cover song of Pink Floyd's "Money", that was featured during various parts of the movie The Italian Job.

Velvet Revolver played their first live show at the El Rey in Los Angeles in June 2003. They recorded their first album Contraband in the latter part of 2003. Recording was complicated by Scott Weiland's court appearances for drug charges and his subsequent sentencing to undertake rehabilitation.
Velvet Revolver's album Contraband was released in June 2004 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard album charts, #11 on the British album charts, and #2 in the Australian charts. In March 2005, their album "Contraband" had sold roughly 1.6 million copies in the United States. Their rigorous touring in support of the album has reached global scales.

Velvet Revolver recorded a new song entitled "Come On, Come In" was has been recorded for the upcoming movie "The Fantastic Four".
