Several CD tracks are "earth-shattering" according to Tommy + VR: 'Fall To Pieces' Video To Be Banned In U.K.?
There's a small GN'R mention in an article about Tommy's show in Cambridge, MA:


Aside from his solo tour, there's Guns N' Roses, the mysterious rock beast of which he's a part. "It still exists," he says. "There's a record coming -- sooner rather than later -- and six or seven of the songs are earth-shattering. We'll be touring the world the beginning of the new year."


Full article.

According to the U.K.'s Daily Star newspaper, "VELVET REVOLVER are on a collision course with TV bosses over an explicit video. The promo to new single 'Fall to Pieces' is set to be banned because of its graphic content the video recounts their singer Scott Weiland's battle with heroin and features scenes of drug-taking and nudity. A source close to the band said: 'They really didn't hold back and it gets pretty gory.'"

"Fall To Pieces" is the second single from VELVET REVOLVER's platinum-certified debut album, "Contraband". The clip, which takes place in a setting reminiscent of Hollywood clubs of the Seventies like the Starwood, not only features the band, but their wives as well. VELVET REVOLVER bassist Duff 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."
