Editorial Reviews

This concert by Velvet Revolver was filmed in Houston, Texas in 2005 during the tour in support of their bestselling and
Grammy Award winning debut album Contraband . The full length live tracks are intercut with snippets of interview with
the various band members talking about how Velvet Revolver came into being. The set list naturally focuses on that debut
release but is complimented by two tracks from the Guns n Roses catalog and two tracks from Stone Temple Pilots debut
album highlighting the history of the band members. Velvet Revolver are an outstanding live band and are on great form in
front of a typically enthusiastic Texan crowd.

I was at this show, it was great. Got the DVD, it is great. BUT WHY OH WHY ISN'T THE ENTIRE SHOW ON HERE??? WHY LEAVE OFF TRACKS LIKE MR. BROWNSTONE, SUPERHUMAN, YOU GOT NO RIGHT, AND, FROM WHAT I REMEMBER, AN EARDRUM-SHATTERING COVER OF NIRVANA'S NEGATIVE CREEP??? Same with the STP Live in Chicago 2010 performance (downloaded through ticketmaster), why can't we have the ENTIRE show??? WE BUY THE MUSIC AND PAY FOR THE SHOWS, GIVE US WHAT WE WANT!!!

When you stop and consider all the supergroups that popped up out of the woodwork in the mid-'00s, Velvet Revolver were easily the most bankable of them all. Merging refugees from the Guns N' Roses camp with the larger-than-life presence of Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland, Velvet Revolver had a formula that was destined for glory. Their debut album, Contraband, quickly topped the charts, earning the band a successful string of radio hits and a live show that likely made Axl Rose ooze with jealousy, thus setting the release of Chinese Democracy back a number of years. So it's easy to understand why their first live DVD, "Velvet Revolver: Live in Houston," is seeing a release even over half a decade after its filming and nearly three years after the band went belly up and Weiland retreated back to his old job.

Presented by Eagle Rock, who is more or less the DVD equivalent of VH1, "Live in Houston" finds Velvet Revolver in its prime. Allegedly clean and sober, the boys rock out like they are having the time of their lives with the sort of camaraderie that makes one wonder why they could only eek out two albums before farting out (but then you remember that Weiland is a basketcase nowadays and it sort of makes sense). The band -- consisting of ex-Gunners Slash, Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum along with hanger-on Dave Kushner -- rip through a set that is heavy on the band's debut, as well as classics from both the GNR and STP catalogues.

First and foremost, this is a great concert by a great band. I wish it was a bit longer, especially since we won't likely see these five together again. The playing is great, and they are a charismatic bunch. Which makes the editing so very disappointing. There are a couple bits with a blonde woman in an SS cap, which are strange, but didn't really affect my viewing. The interview parts were interesting, although I wish they were not part of the show itself (but if you read Duff's book, some are really interesting). The worst part is that the editors couldn't just show the concert, and whatever they did got overdone. It started with the cameras jumping from shot to shot, and I wondered how much of that I could take. Well, it got worse. During "Headspace", the song is shown in various size boxes appearing on the screen, with Matt drumming at one point with the same scene of him in six little boxes under the main one. There was also the vertical split down the middle of the screen, with mirror images on each side (think "The Song Remains the Same"). Then vertical "blinds" which transformed in different shot. There was even a liquid type effect used to change scenes. It reminded me of a high school project where the editor had to use all of the effects available, rather than show a really fine concert.

Production of this video sucks. They tried to get all fancy, but it's so amateur 1978. Split screen? Really, come on? Two Slashes, two Scotts. Just plain stupid.

You do get some good band history here thigh. Interviews and behind the scenes are cool, though I don't really want them in between every song.

Do it for the kids is good, but tracks 1 and 3 aren't very good. Crackerman is done better than the original STP band. Illegal I has a pretty cool jam out with solos, but I wasn't sure what Scott was doing on the keyboards; Slash has cool solo in this song though. It's so easy is a wild performance (with a megaphone at the end and some scary looks and screams from Scott). Fall To Pieces is perhaps my favorite track here. With such a short setlist, I wonder if they left out a lot of songs or if they were just an opening band for someone else? Big Machine is a fun track. Set me free is just okay. Used To Love Her was weird, but hearing Scott, Duff, and Matt harmonize was cool. Slither was awesome live (Slash's guitar work is just amazing here). Sex Type Thing was just as good as any STP version of it (harder, darker, and wilder). Slither and Fall to Pieces are the heart of VR.

Scott is the master of the megaphone. Duff really stands out as a strong foundation for this band. It's good to see and hear Dave Kushner live, which shows how much he contributed. Slash and Matt Sorum are great as usual. There's something special here, but as we know it would all self destruct. Scott looks a bit sickly here and it's hard to watch in some parts. Sad. Only five years later, they'd be broken up and Scott would be back with STP for a brief final goodbye.
