MOVE OVER, GREEN DAY — VELVET REVOLVER PLAN CONCEPT ALBUM
MEANWHILE, SCOTT WEILAND IS ALSO EYEING ANOTHER SOLO LP.

CULVER CITY, California — What Green Day waited seven albums to do Velvet Revolver are doing with their second.

That, of course, would be a concept album.

"It's something I've been wanting to do since the last STP album, since the Shangri-La Dee Da album [in 2001], and it never was completely realized," singer Scott Weiland (formerly of Stone Temple Pilots) said. "You never know until you really completely get there, but it's going in that direction right now."

Weiland refused to reveal any details about the concept but said he and his fellow VR members have been writing for months.

"This album really has to make a statement," bassist Duff McKagan added. "We've toured for 18 months. Now we have a brand name. Now we know each other as a band. The first album was just us together at home, a spontaneous product. Now it's time to make that record."

Along with the follow-up to 2004's Contraband, Weiland is also working on the follow-up to his 1998 solo album, 12 Bar Blues, for which he has 25 songs written.

Weiland intended to release the solo album a few years ago but joined Slash, McKagan, Matt Sorum and Dave Kushner in Velvet Revolver instead.

"I think I was looking really for a way out of doing drugs," Weiland recalled. "Then I kept on thinking the music [they were sending me] was getting better and better and finally I was just like, 'I think that there really might be a real contribution waiting to happen for rock and roll here. And I think if I join this I can really add something to this and make a real contribution.' "

There's no title or release date yet for either album, but McKagan said to expect a spring release for VR. In the meantime, the band is performing a New Year's Eve show at the Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey.

"It's a tiny little club where people can hang from the rafters." McKagan said. "It's gonna be hot and sweaty and ferocious, but that's rock and roll."
