Velvet Revolver Makes Live Debut

Velvet Revolver — the new group featuring Guns N’ Roses vets Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum, David Kushner of Suicidal Tendencies and former Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland — will play its first show tonight (June 19) at Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre.

“[Weiland] is just awesome,” Slash said. “We’ve been writing new songs. He’s a great singer, and he’s a great arranger. The music just sounds unique. We just fit together as a band. There’s not this weird subconscious pressure going on that something’s not right.”

The group’s single, “Set Me Free,” which hit stores this week as part of Decca/Universal’s score/soundtrack to “The Hulk,” leaked to radio early and is already among the most-requested songs on alternative stations WBCN in Boston and KROQ in Los Angeles. The group’s managers, Dana Millman-DuFine and David Codikow of Immortal Entertainment, pacted with Apple’s new iTunes download service to offer the single, and it’s already the No. 2 most-downloaded song.
