Video for Falling To Pieces (Velvet Revolver)

Has anyone seen this video from Velvet Revolver? It's the new band with Scott Weiland from STP, and Slash and whatnot. The song is really good but my god, what a powerful video....very autobiographical on Weiland's part.

great song / great album

for me the video lies somewhere directly between tacky and powerful. i can't decide which it is. regardless, that man has had one hell of a ride.

the acting by the band members...auch, it's all just embarassing to watch.

I've only caught the performance parts. It reminds me a LOT of early Guns videos

I don't like the song. To me, it's too formulaic.

As far as the video goes; I can see where you're coming from. It does have its artistic values I guess. I'm not all over the threesome kiss.

On a side note, this album isn't all that bad (not all good, either), but I think they need a real rocker for the next single:

"Do it for the Kids" or "Big Machine:

i like this song despite the fact that 90% of the lyrics are "fall to pieces" or some variation of that phrase.

so not only is scott weiland a drug addict but he has to glorify that by acting it out in this video?

I like the song but I think the video is a bit overly dramatic. It makes me laugh,which I'm sure isn't the desired intention

i wouldn't quite call it glorifying being a drug addict... it actually makes the withdrawl process look quite painful and not very appealing

I don't see it as glorification at all. I can imagine that must have been really difficult for Wieland to film...
