Hard rockers Velvet Revolver were forced to take a much-needed break after growing sick of each other during a mammoth 18-month tour.
The supergroup knew it was time to chill out when they began rowing with each other.
Bassist Duff MCKagan says, "We had come off the road after touring for 18 months. I don't care who you are, if you're five guys on the road that long you are going to get sick of each other.
"So we took some time off and it was hard getting started again. We don't talk a lot."
