Slash Reveals Velvet Revolver Have "quietly been
looking" for Weiland Replacement -
In a new interview Slash has stated that
Velvet Revolver are indeed still searching for a
new lead singer to replace former frontman, Scott Weiland.
Slash was being interviewed on Banana 101.5 when he revealed
that the band have "quietly been looking" for Weiland's
replacement, who parted ways with the hard-rock 'supergroup' in
"With Velvet, there's no singer in place, and there hasn't
been, but we've been, actually, very quietly been looking for
somebody who's right for that band."
"But, interestingly enough, I'm playing some shows in South
Africa with [fellow former Guns N' Roses and Velvet
Revolver members] Duff [McKagan] and Matt
[Sorum], and Glenn Hughes and Sebastian Bach, and
that's going to be interesting. It's calledKings Of Chaos, and Duff
and Matt and Steve Stevens and Glenn
Hughesand Sebastian Bach are the main band, and then they
have guys that come up and guest… It's going to be sort of
like Velvet Revolver with Sebastian and Glenn
Velvet Revolver briefly reunited with Weiland
in 2012 to perform four tracks at a Los Angeles tribute concert for
late songwriter John O'Brien, but the band has otherwise remained
on hiatus. Weiland was also recently fired by Stone Temple
Pilots, with whom he founded along with Robert
DeLeo, Dean DeLeo and Eric
Kretz back in 1986.
