Slash confirms Corey Taylor rumors for Velvet Revolver
Will Corey Taylor become the new singer for Velvet Revolver? That’s not confirmed but what we DO know is that Slash has fessed up to the fact that Taylor is the lead candidate for the job.
Speaking to the Charlotte Observer, the guitarist said “There was truth to the rumor that we were looking at Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour), but then I left for tour. So there’s nothing being done at the moment. No decision.”
Slash had recently said that the rumor of Taylor trying out was “blown out of proportion” after bassist Duff McKagan said on an ESPN.com chat that the Stone Sour/Slipknot singer had the qualities that made guys like Scott Weiland and Axl Rose great frontmen. So far, Taylor’s only response to the rumors swirling around him was three words to Billboard: “To be continued!”
Taylor is currently on tour with Stone Sour and shows no sign of stopping as the band will play multiple festivals in the U.S. this summer. All of Stone Sour’s dates can be found at their website.
