I've never listened to these guys cd's and only heard one song, are they worth getting?

I don't know man, I've heard songs by VR but was never inclined to go out an purchase an album, I guess I'd have to give em' a chance and jam them to see if there as good as others say they are. They got Slash and the ex GnR guys so it can't be all that bad, although I was never a big GnR fan either, and not a big STP fan either so there union was not a big thing to me.

As a huge fan of both GNR and STP, I gotta say that both Velvet Revolver albums are in the "meh" category for me. They're ok, but nothing great. I like them better than both of Slash's Snakepit albums, but less that his latest solo effort.

If you can find them cheap, they're probably worth a listen, but don't expect them to knock your wig back or melt your face off. Decent enough modern rock, nothing more, nothing less.

I'd recommend Slash's solo album before VR if you're looking for something with ex-GNR members. I think all of the ex-members of GNR except Axl make an appearence in some capacity.

I don't like a single person involved with VR, so I never bothered.

I feel the exact same way about Chickenfoot.

Good to know, especially since I liked both Slash's Snakepit albums. Won't be getting these.

I liked a couple songs well enough to buy it originally, but they're a very bland band. I couldn't tell you a single track by them, nothing sticks.
