Scott Weiland said in an interview last year that he’d patched things up with most of the members of Velvet Revolver, and now he’s proving it. He’s reuniting with the band to perform a few songs at Love You Madly: A Concert for John O’Brien at the House of Blues in Hollywood on January 12th. The show will also feature performances by Stephen Stills and Rage Against the Machine‘s Tom Morello.

Weiland and Velvet Revolver last performed together in April 2008.

Disturbed bassist John Moyer is using the band’s hiatus to get back to his roots as a music teacher. He’s taken over as director and owner of the Natural Ear Music School in Austin, Texas, where he started teaching in 1999 when he was still in Union Underground. Moyer has replaced the school’s founder, Mike Murphy, who left to focus on his job as mayor of nearby Liberty Hill, Texas.
