Slash Dismisses Rumours That Velvet Revolver Will Open For Led Zeppelin

Slash (2007) Wendy Bird Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash has dismissed reports that the band are to open for Led Zeppelin on a world tour.

Rumours linking the two bands emerged last week after Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagen said that the band "have" the slot.

However, speaking to BBC Newsbeat, Slash said that the band would be spending the next few months working on their next album.

"There's been a huge rumour going around about us opening for them and I think that was something that was taken out of context," he said.

He didn't discount that Led Zeppelin would be touring, however, saying: "As far as Zeppelin doing a tour, that remains to be seen."

"I saw Robert last night and he's got his solo thing going on and as far as Velvet Revolver is concerned, we've got another record to do and we're not even thinking about that."
