As previously reported, the five principal members of Velvet Revolver — Scott Weiland, Slash, Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum, and Dave Kushner — reunited in Hollywood last night for their first performance together in four years. The set was part of a charity concert benefiting Kushner’s longtime friend, musician John O’Brien.
According to Blabbermouth, Velvet Revolver performed four songs, including original tracks “Sucker Train Blues”, “She Builds Quick Machines”, and “Slither” as well as a cover of Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here”. Below, you can check out live footage of the performance.
Speaking with Rolling Stone last week, Kushner said that while band has no immediate plans for the future, they may be open to the possibility. “We havent played together in four years, and so were really just like, ‘Lets see how this goes,'” Kushner explained. ”I know everyones got other commitments, but I think everyones like, ‘Lets get this thing done and get through this and then well see.’
