Velvet Revolver Future Unclear
It looked like they were close to naming a singer, but all of a sudden it appeared that Velvet Revolver had returned to the backburner. Slash is touring and Duff McKagan is focused on the new Loaded album. Duff was interviewed by Guitar International about that new Loaded album and was asked the following: "Why do you think it is taking so long to find a singer for Velvet Revolver? "
Duff responded, "I don't know how much I want to say about that. I think Slash is very happy doing his solo thing, and why not. I think if Velvet Revolver is going to happen again it will happen when it's supposed to happen. We played with some good singers and Scott Weiland is tough guy to replace. A lot of singers are daunted by that. You don't want to go out there and f*** up. Some things are better left as is. There's a lot going through you head. Should we f*** with this or leave it alone? The things you put into a band you don't want it tainted. Like I said, if it's supposed to happen well do it." Read the full interview here
