Slash says Velvet Revolver is looking for a heavier lead singer than Scott Weiland.


It shouldn't be too hard. What does Scott weigh, 87 pounds? Ohhhhhh. He means...."Heavier"...........


What is the status with Velvet Revolver?

Everything is cool. We’ve been writing this whole time, but we’re on this quest for a singer.
It wasn’t so long ago when you were in this situation, back when the band was getting together.

We spent at that time 10 months listening to 200 singers a week, and chased after Scott, and managed to make that work. We were off and running, but then things fell short and we’re at it again. It’s actually sort of a blessing, because we originally wanted to do something really heavy and it took a different turn, especially on the last record. This time around we’re not going to make any compromises.

Did you learn any lessons learned from the last search?

Singers are a very interesting breed. It’s hard to be choosy when it comes to finding somebody talented enough to be a really great frontman for a rock & roll band. There’s always something that comes along with it, just like with any musician. It’s all worth it if you manage to get those magical moments.

Man it's obvious - Izzy Stradlin! Failing that why not get in Dave Mustaine? He needs a decent band and has played with Slash before.
