VELVET REVOLVER Bassist Says 'Fall To Pieces' Video Shoot Had 'Family Vibe' + VR reviews
VELVET REVOLVER bassist Duff McKagan recently spoke to Launch Radio Networks about the video for "Fall To Pieces", the second single from the group's new album, "Contraband". The clip, which takes place in a setting reminiscent of Hollywood clubs of the Seventies like the Starwood, not only featured the band, but their wives as well. McKagan said about the shoot, "Um, yeah, we had some of our wives in there, and [singer] Scott's [Weiland] wife, Mary, which the song was basically written around the premise of his life falling down all around him, and he was separated from his wife and his two kids. And it was just, you know, kinda just it's a family vibe. We're all in this together."

VELVET REVOLVER are currently touring Europe in support of "Contraband", which has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), signifying shipments of more than 1,000,000 units.

"Contraband" debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 chart, selling over 250,000 copies. Notably, this marks the best-ever debut for a new rock artist in the SoundScan era.
