They’re just dumping Weiland:

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Four founding members of the rock band Velvet Revolver said on Tuesday they were splitting with the group’s troubled singer, Scott Weiland, citing his “increasingly erratic” behavior.

The announcement came in a terse statement from the group’s management company as Weiland, 40, and his recently reunited original band, Stone Temple Pilots, were set next week to announce plans for a highly anticipated summer tour.

Full story at Reuters.

Yeah, I love his recent on-stage comment about it being the last Velvet Revolver tour. No, just the last tour with you, douchebag junkie.

This is perfect! Now all they have to do is make up with Axl and start playing as Guns N Roses again. Just in time for the release of Chinese Democracy. I want my fuckin free Dr. Pepper!
