It’s a funny old game this thing we call rock and roll. As a completely self-indulgent career move you’d think those at the top would be the epitome of happiness. But given the immense capacity for self-indulgence, plus constant attention and expected excessive anti-social behaviour, it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. With almost 200 years experience between them – from alcoholic blacked-out years, debauched groupie knobbing, injecting every chemical substance you can think of, heartache, and death – Velvet Revolver have been to the darkest depths of rock’s Hades, but then rose again like Lazarus. If anyone knows the ups and downs of life it’s them.
