Enlarge It sounds a LOT like Velvet Revolver.

Check Out Suspect208, the New Band Featuring the Sons of Dudes From Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, and Stone Temple Pilots

In a move you will either find to be a completely adorable extension of some famous hard rock lineages or maddening proof of the ills of nepotism and privilege, the sons of three super-duper-mega-stars have teamed up in a new band called Suspect208 (don’t ask me what the name means, I have no clue… I also don’t know what a Stone Temple Pilot is, though, so whatever).

Specifically, the band features:

  • Noah Weiland, son of Stone Temple Pilots/Velvet Revolver singer Scott Weiland (vocals)
  • Tye Trujillo, son of Metallica’s Robert Trujillo, who you may remember from when he toured with Korn in 2017, at the ripe old age of twelve (bass)
  • London Hudson, son of Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash (drums)
  • Niko Tsangaris, whose father I think (but cannot seem to confirm) does or used to co-manage Slash and/or Velvet Revolver (guitar)

The band’s just-released debut single, “Long Awaited,” sounds a LOT like Contraband-era Velvet Revolver. Noah Weiland’s voice is a dead ringer for that of his late father. And even though London plays drums instead of guitar (he has previously said that he doesn’t wanna live in his dad’s very large, top-hatted shadow), and Tsangaris also play together in a band called Classless Act, and Niko sounds very Slash-y.

You can check out “Long Awaited” below. Then head to the comments section to debate whether or not talent can be passed down genetically.
