This year, Slash has been busy promoting his new album Slash, and he's also been touring. But a few days ago he gave some info on his long-dormant band Velvet Revolver. And yes, they might be up to something!
On his Myspace page, Slash said: "VR is back together jamming, trying out singers. No updates yet. But it's great to hook up with Duff [McKagan], Matt [Sorum] & Dave [Kushner] after all this time. I'll keep you posted on any interesting developments from those sessions as they happen. The creative juices are definitely flowing. I'm positive something awesome is going to surface soon."
It's pretty awesome Velvet Revolver might be going to do something soon. They have been looking for a lead singer ever since Scott Weiland left the band in 2008 to get back together with the Stone Temple Pilots. Then, early this year bassist Duff McKagan announced he'd be joining Jane's Addiction, but that only laster for six months, and came back.
But don't cheer too soon, Slash's comments leave room for the possibility that nothing will come of these jam sessions. Don't forget that McKagan also has his own band, Loaded, that's releasing their new album next year. On top of that Slash also mentioned this in his Myspace update: "I'm also working on killer new material for a future solo (or not) release. The details of which will be coming down the road as well." In other words, we're sure to hear some music from the guys in Velvet Revolver soon -- it just might not be a Velvet Revolver album, though."
