Mark Slaughter Reveals His Velvet Revolver Opportunity (A Top Story)

On Monday Mark Slaughter Reveals His Velvet Revolver Opportunity was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Mark Slaughter says he was asked to write for Velvet Revolver when the band were auditioning for lead singers in 2002. But Slaughter, who released his debut solo album Reflections In A Rear View Mirror earlier this year, says while the project would have been "really cool" it wasn't right for him.

He tells Totally Driven Radio: "When Guns N' Roses flew apart and they were about to start Velvet Revolver, I was sent a song. I wrote a verse and a chorus and sent it back for that gig but the truth of the matter is that these guys have a kind of Hollywood, rock 'n' roll thing and I'm the milk and cookies of the whole era. It really didn't fit but the music was really interesting and that would have been a really cool thing if it would have flown."

He says Great White also expressed an interest in acquiring his talents and reports he could have been in place for Vinnie Vincent Invasion's debut in 1986 instead of Robert Fleischman. Read more - here.
