VELVET REVOLVER Drummer: SCOTT WEILAND Is 'Healthy And Ready To Rock'

VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES drummer Matt Sorum has issued the following update:

"[VELVET REVOLVER] just landed in Dubai. This place is so cool. And wild. Dubai is a long way from California. Have been flying over 24 hours after a stop in Frankfurt, Germany. Cannot wait to rock tomorrow. Play a big festival here with the MUSE. Then we head up to Dublin for two gigs, then over to England, Scotland finishing up in Belgium, Germany and Amsterdam.

"Scott [Weiland, VR vocalist] is healthy and ready to rock. We are all ready to get back on stage and play for all you fine people. See you rockers soon."

Weiland on Wednesday pleaded innocent to drunk-driving charges following his November arrest in Los Angeles.

Weiland is free on $40,000 bail and is due back in court for a hearing on April 4.

If convicted, he faces up to one year behind bars because he has a prior conviction for driving under the influence.

He was pulled over by police on November 21 on a Hollywood freeway and was taken into custody after refusing to take a sobriety test.
