Corey Taylor auditioned for Velvet Revolver
In a recent interview with , lead singer of Slipknot Corey Taylor brought up some interesting news.
Turns out that he was also one of the many singers who auditioned for the dead in the water rock band Velvet Revolver. Corey said that they did some demos together but in the end it didn’t work out. I’m actually glad it didn’t.
If Velvet Revolver is attempting a comeback then I think the best way to go is with an unknown. It was cool when Scott Weiland was involved but to try and get another big name frontman to sing for VR just wouldn’t work anymore. I say they start fresh, find someone completely unknown and start the process all over again. Or just break up the band entirely because people have already forgotten about VR.
