Perhaps one of most powerful and prolific supergroups around today, Velvet Revolver was first formed back in 2002 with three Guns N’ Roses members, in that of Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum as well as Dave Kushner of Wasted Youth and Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland. This quite remarkable formation was able to take their debut album Contrabad straight to Number one in the U.S. On the album had two number one singles. In 2005 they received a Grammy for their song ‘Slither’. Their second album Libertad was also a success reaching number five in the charts. The bands live sets are considered to be outstanding and their 2008 live performance in Houston is a great insight into their impressive stage-presence.
