Velvet Revolver Paid Tribute Song for Late Brothers



In the middle of a 90 minutes show, Velvet Revolver slipped in a song to commemorate frontman Scott Weiland and drummer Matt Sorum's brothers.

Velvet Revolver's gig on May 3 was brought to a tear jerking moment when vocalist Scott Weiland sang Pink Floyd's "Wish You Were Here" in tribute to his and drummer Matt Sorum's late brothers.

"It literally crushed us. It made this record happen for both of us," Scott said upon their brothers who died of drug overdose during the making of "Libertad". As the singer delivered the tunes, a video footage showing the late Michel Weiland's family was screened on the background. The family consisting of Michael's wife and two young daughters will benefit from the concert.

The band then treated the crowd with a healthy dose of their new hits from upcoming "Libertad". They also delivered the award-winning hit "Slither" from previous album as well as other songs such as Stone Temple Pilots' "Vasoline" and Guns N' Roses' "Used to Love Her".

The band will continue promoting "Libertad" in 11 more venues until the last stop in New York on May 22. European leg will follow in June while US jaunt is still in plan to hit the stage the end of this summer.
