Weiland + Guns N’ Roses = Reloaded. – STP Frontman Says He Is The Project Vocalist.
One of the most buzzed about supergroups to come down the pike in a long time has been making headlines for the past few months as singers ranging from Sebastian Bach (Skid Row), Travis Meek (Days of the New) to Kelly Shaefer (Neurotica), Josh Todd (Buckcherry) and A. Jay Popoff (Lit) have tried out for the lead singer position.
It now appears that Stone Temple Pilot frontman Scott Weiland has landed the gig. According to Weiland the band also has a new name, “Reloaded”. But drummer Matt Sorum isn’t quite ready to announce either the name or singer.
The following was reported by Rolling Stone:
"Yeah, I'm in the band," Weiland told Rolling Stone during Marilyn Manson's show at Los Angeles' Key Club on Monday night. "We signed the contract."
Sorum, who attended the Manson show with Weiland, was more guarded about the singer's involvement. "I need to ask my whole band before we can say anything," he said. "We left the studio tonight to come down here to see Manson."
