Slash Says Velvet Revolver On Hold For A Couple More Years and Corey Taylor Isn't Thier Man

(Gibson) Slash has said that he does not see Velvet Revolver working together for at least another couple of years. The hard rock band have yet to replace singer Scott Weiland, who departed in 2008. Recent rumors that Slipknot's Corey Taylor might get the gig have been quashed.

Slash told Vorterix.com: "We did work with Corey Taylor, and as soon as that rumor [got around], next thing you know, everybody is saying Corey's the new singer... All we were doing was just rehearsing with him and trying him out auditioning him... It just didn't seem to fit right to me. And he's great and I love Corey but it didn't seem like the answer to the Velvet Revolver problem."

As for the future, he said: "Duff's got his own thing, I've got my thing, Matt's got his thing... Next year I definitely will make another Slash record with Myles Kennedy and go on tour. So at least for the next couple of years, nothing is going to be happening with Velvet Revolver that I can see 'cause I'll be focused on this. And after that's over, if something happens... I'm just not really concerning myself with it right now. We had all these different guys try out, all really good singers, but nobody has fit the thing, so, you know, I have to move on." more on this story
