Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan joked with Time Off magazine about how the band can be open to playing material from their prior groups, Guns N’ Roses and Stone Temple Pilots. “It’s better than having a past that you’re fu**ing trying to hide from,” McKagan said, “Maybe if I’d been in Winger we wouldn’t be so open to it. Nothing against Winger of course, but you know what I’m saying. I mean it’s true – the songs we wrote in Guns N’ Roses were fu**ing killer songs, and they’re great to do live, so why not?” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.

I would say it would be a good idea to get, just for a couple of shows, to get the original STP and the original Guns N’ Roses to do a couple of shows for the fun of it.” YouTube has since removed the video.
