Song du semaine: Velvet Revolver, "Fall to Pieces"

We all knew Velvet Revolver wouldn’t last, right? Weiland hasn’t learned self-control in any sense of the word by this point, and it may never happen.

And that’s a shame, because in his better moments, he’s a talented singer willing to open up to startling self-examination about his drug-riddled past.

Fall to Pieces is a good, solid rock song — pretty guitar figures from Slash and Dave Kushner, building to a stirring chorus as Weiland sells the drama.

But the video is remarkable as well. It has a sweetness you don’t usually see from rock clips, with Weiland laying bare his reliance on loved ones and bandmates to get him through the tough times. It’s all believable — you get the impression this isn’t the first time Duff has had to wrap up a trashed bandmate and let him thrash it out.

Pity no one was able to keep talking sense into these guys.
