Scott Weiland Was Nervous to Be Filling Axl Rose’s Shoes!
During in an interview with Brando from Appetite for Distortion podcast, Scott Weiland’s solo band guitarist Doug Grean has revealed a story about how Scott Weiland felt when he was recording first song with Slash and Duff McKagan in Velvet Revolver.
Doug said that ‘I think he just wanted to be super ultra ripped because he was going to be replacing Axl Rose’. Here’s the statement:
“Just one year he got obsessed with working out, he was so obsessed he would work out in the morning, and then we’d go out to lunch and he’s eat a piece of bread, and he’d be liked, ‘I’ve got to go back to the gym.’ I swear to God, I saw him do it several times.
It was around the time Velvet Revolver was forming, and I think he just wanted to be super ultra ripped because he was going to be replacing Axl Rose. He was very nervous about that, he was a huge fan. I’ll tell you a story, no one knows this story. I was there in the living room the day The Project sent over the CD, like a messenger had sent over a CD of song ideas from Duff and Slash, to get Scott interested in being the singer.
This is 9 months before their first song. He tells me what it is, and I said, ‘’Well you going to do it?’ He goes, ‘I can’t sing with Slash and Duff. I can’t take over Axl Rose’s place, I just can’t do it.’ He didn’t like celebrity that much. He could have hung out with tons of famous people, and he never did. It was a little intimidating to him. Then 9 months later they offered him a super sweet deal on this soundtrack.
They threw a huge chunk of change at them to do that cover, and that started it. Scott was very friendly and liked to collaborate, and so once they did one song, that was it, there was a band. But initially, he was intimidated, and didn’t want anything to do with it.”
