(CelebrityAccess News Service) – Velvet Revolver, the much buzzed-about rock group featuring Stone Temple Pilots vocalist Scott Weiland, former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan, drummer Matt Sorum and guitarist Dave Kushner from Dave Navarro's band, has signed an exclusive worldwide recording agreement with RCA Records. The quintet will release its highly anticipated debut album in 2004.
"This is a milestone signing for RCA," said Clive Davis, chairman/CEO RCA Music Group. "Velvet Revolver is distinguished by not only its powerhouse musicianship but also by its new material. The songs I've heard will propel this group to the very forefront of rock music today."
"We're thrilled to partner with RCA Records and its legendary chief, the enigmatic Clive Davis," says Velvet Revolver. "We believe this marriage will be a loyal, dedicated and fruitful relationship not based solely on business, but instead on the thing that once dared us all to dream-music." –by Bob Grossweiner and Jane Cohen
