Many members of Guns N' Roses were feeling similar urges to go off in new directions, so the guitar, bass and drums of that seminal rock group, alongside the guitar/bass player of Wasted Youth, all found huge commercial success with Velvet Revolver. Two albums and a handful of hard rock tours later and Weiland had once again felt the urge to part ways
