Rocker Scott Weiland has distanced himself from new supergroup Art Of Anarchy, insisting he's not the band's frontman.
Last week (ends23Jan15), Guns N' Roses star Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal and Disturbed bassist John Moyer announced the line-up for their new band and it included Weiland, but the former Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver singer insists he's not an official member, and he's too busy fronting The Wildabouts to commit to another act.
He says, "It was something I did when I wasn't doing anything. I was asked to write some lyrics and sing some melodies on this project, but it's not a band I'm in. This is my band."
But Thal adds, "Artists do collaborations and a month later, their own album comes out. This is normal stuff. All good.
"The five of us made an album together. Scott is currently the singer of the band. It's in writing; no confusion. But yes, Scott's solo album and tour are his priority and we're all on the same page about getting another vocalist if Art of Anarchy hits the road. But we don't need to cross that bridge just yet."
Thal formed the band with brothers Jon and Vince Votta.
