Velvet Revolver's Scott Weiland Enters Rehab

February 8, 2008 10:23 AM ET

Following Velvet Revolver's concert in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, and following his arrest for driving under the influence back in November, singer Scott Weiland voluntarily entered a rehab facility, according to a statement from the band. Weiland's rehab stay forced the cancellation of the band's show tonight in San Diego and jeopardizes Velvet Revolver's planned Australian tour, even though the promoter states, "We have not been told that the tour has been affected and right now I can say that it is still 100% going ahead." The Australia jaunt is scheduled to start February 15th, meaning that Weiland has seven days to get clean. How this affects the apparent plans for a Stone Temple Pilots reunion (and whether Weiland was just hyping an STP reunion because he was chemically altered) remain to be seen.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
