Why Velvet Revolver Isn't Releasing Corey Taylor Album

07/27/2011
.
We told you a little bit about this yesterday but today RockAAA has more details about the album's worth of material Velvet Revolver recorded with Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor and why the band is not releasing it:

"It was funny, because when we did [the debut album] Velvet Revolver, we had our relationships with certain singers, but we wanted to make a modern rock album, and we had to figure out a way to make that work," Matt Sorum tells Lokaos Rock Show. "We didn't wanna be like Guns N' Roses. We knew we had that in us anyway, especially because the Slash and Duff sound was the initial sound of "Appetite For Destruction," the way they played together and everything. Part of that chemistry was there, and when we added Scott [Weiland], it brought it into a more modern rock element. He came more from grunge the Seattle [sound like] Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and bands like that. So it took it sort of forward. We became more of a modern rock band and we were on modern rock radio. Guns N' Roses wasn't even being played on those radio stations in America."

"When we asked Corey Taylor to join, that was my idea," continued Sorum. "I said, 'Why don't we get Corey Taylor from Slipknot?' And he's a great guy, number one he's an absolute sweetheart and he rocks. Slash just didn't see it like the rest of us did. We liked it. We had ten songs. [We] could put the album out tomorrow. It's done. I said, 'Let's go.' But Slash wasn't feeling it. If we're not all feeling it together, we can't do it." Will the band regroup any time soon?
