Slash posts update on Velvet Revolver singer search


Velvet Revolver Guitar legend SLASH (VELVET REVOLVER, ex-GUNS N' ROSES) has posted the following update:

"Hey gang, what's happening? Things are going fantastic in the studio, Josh Freese (drums) and Chris Chaney (bass) are one hell of a rhythm machine and the guitar sound is FAT! Fucking Awesome Tone! All is going perfect so far. We start recording vocals today and I'm really excited about working with this particular individual, its going to be quite an event.

In reading your mail I find that I've been receiving a lot of questions about VR. Mostly about if we have found a new singer and if we're going to tour again. In response to the former, no we haven't found a singer yet. There was a lot of talk about our announcing a new singer in March but it obviously didn't happen. We had somebody that we thought was a really good candidate, but it just wasn't meant to be. So, we're still looking. In response to the latter question, of course VR is going to tour again, we just have to find the right person to front the band. We have a bunch of new material and we're all anxious to get going, but the key ingredient for a rock n' roll band such as VR is an amazing frontman, and we haven't found the right man for the job, yet.

As far as upcoming events, I'll be playing the Quart Fest in Norway, June 30th with special guests. Also, I will be doing a few big shows tba in support of my solo album at some point. I'm sure there will be some other gigs here and there as well, so stay tuned.

I think that pretty much covers it for now, VR is still looking for a lead vocalist and I'm busy in the studio getting this record together. Hopefully by the time I'm done with my record, Velvet Revolver will be announcing some new plans, if not before."
