Fall to Pieces (4:30)

Cover of Contraband

From Contraband and 15 other releases

“Fall to Pieces” is a song by Velvet Revolver written by band vocalist Scott Weiland that appears on their debut album Contraband. It was the band’s third single and was very successful. “Fall to Pieces” is a power ballad about lead singer Scott Weiland’s battle with heroin and its toll on his relationship with his wife, model Mary Forsberg. The song has also been recorded in an Acoustic version.

The song was #1 on the Mainstream Rock charts for 11 consecutive weeks and also hit #67 on the Billboard Hot 100. The band performed the song during their performance at Live 8; its performance is the only one of the three songs they played there that appears on the concert DVD.

The song’s music video strongly follows the meaning of the song, showing Weiland struggling to maintain his relationship with his wife (who appears in the video as herself). The video shows a graphic depiction of Scott going through an overdose, but being “rescued” by bassist Duff McKagan.
