Velvet Whateverolver


Something new in the land of “Who gives a flying fuck” — Slash has commented on Velvet Revolver’s auditioning process and working with Corey Taylor. According to / (man, I’m full of shit puns today), it “didn’t seem to fit right” with him. Aaaw, poor Corey must be heartbroken.

You can read an excerpt from the interview he gave to someone after the jump, if you really feel like it. Or you can just read our Brad Delson facts collection, because they’re funny and they tell the tale of a real guitar god.

“Because of the social networking, and the way that information gets out so quickly now… We did work with Corey Taylor, and as soon as that rumor [got around], next thing you know, everybody is saying Corey’s the new singer. And all we were doing was just rehearsing with him and trying him out — auditioning him, so to speak. So, in order to do that, our process is to… we take a lot of music that we wrote and we give it to him and he writes his lyrics and he comes in and we just perform it and record it and see [what it sounds like]. It’s just an audition process; it’s the way that we do it. So he did come in and do all that. But I just wasn’t… It just didn’t seem to fit right to me. And he’s great — and I love Corey — but it didn’t seem like the answer to the Velvet Revolver problem.”

Gee, the only problem I see here is that you won’t let go of it already.
