This US hard rock supergroup was formed in early 2002 when former Guns NRoses bandmates Slash (Saul Hudson, 23 July 1965, Hampstead, London, England; guitar), Duff McKagan (b. Michael Andrew McKagan, 5 February 1964, Seattle, Washington, USA; bass) and Matt Sorum (b. Matthew William Sorum, 19 November 1960, Mission Viejo, California, USA; drums) got together on stage for a live jam session. Suitably invigorated by their renewed musical chemistry, the trio began advertising for a singer to join their new project. By the time Dave Kushner (b. David Kushner, 16 November 1965, Los Angeles, California, USA; ex-Wasted Youth) came on board as second guitarist, interest levels were high enough for the music channel VH-1 to film ongoing rehearsals. The Stone Temple Pilots troubled figurehead Scott Weiland (b. Scott Richard Kline, 27 October 1967, Santa Cruz, California, USA) was eventually recruited as lead vocalist.
