Linkin Park Singer Denies Velvet Revolver Rumors

(Blabbermouth) Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington has dismissed rumors that he has been tapped to replace Scott Weiland as the new singer of Velvet Revolver.

In an exclusive interview for this week's Kerrang! magazine, Bennington said, "I'm friends with all the guys in Velvet Revolver and have played with all of them before. I'm friends with Scott too. I think the rumour that I was going to join Velvet Revolver started because Slash asked me if I'd come play a show with them in Vegas right around the time that Scott left the band. Timing-wise, it didn't work out for me, though. Maybe people assumed that invitation meant I was joining the band."

"If I wasn't in Linkin Park anymore and I didn't know Scott, though, I'd say yes," he says. "Who wouldn't? The music is great and it would be a really cool opportunity." - more on this story
