Velvet Revolver Hint Plans To Announce New Vocalist Soon

Following the decision by Scott Weiland to quit to return to his prior group Stone Temple Pilots in early April, drummer Matt Sorum spoke with Artisan News Service about the group’s plans to replace Weiland. “We’re coming out with something in a couple of weeks and I think it’s going to surprise everybody,” Sorum teased. “It’s exciting. We’re moving forward. We’re going to keep going and play rock ‘n’ roll and get a new guy singing, so we did it before we’ll do it again.”

He added, “We’re really seriously thinking about doing something online. Yeah, we got offered a couple of different television ideas you know. [TV producer] Mark Burnett called us and asked us to do that ‘Rock Star’ thing and we basically said no to that. We didn’t feel it was right for us. No disrespect to him, but it just didn’t feel right for what we want to do. As many years as we’ve tried to keep our integrity intact, we felt that wasn’t the right forum for us to do it, so we got some ideas and we should have that news in a couple weeks.”
