Corey Taylor Speaks Out on Velvet Revolver was the No 5 rock story of 2011. Here it is: Gibson) After months of rumors that Stone Sour/Slipknot singer Corey Taylor was going to be christened as the next Velvet Revolver vocalist, followed by that not happening, Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash admitted in a new interview that he was the main reason Taylor didn't get the gig.

Slash explained that Taylor did meet with the group, but it just didn't click, reports Blabbermouth.net: "All we were doing was just rehearsing with him and trying him out – auditioning him ... he did come in and do all that. 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."

Adding to the drama, during a co-hosting stint on the May 4 edition of Canada's Louder radio show, Taylor was asked for his thoughts on Slash's comments. "We got together and we jammed some stuff and I guess it just wasn't working for him, which… He's Slash and he's entitled to have that, and I'm not gonna argue with him," Taylor said. "But it was cool to just be able to get together and jam with those guys and I made some really cool friends. Me and Duff [McKagan, Velvet Revolver bassist] are really close. It's one more thing I can say I did." more on this story
