The Rock Radio reports:

There's been little news out of the VELVET REVOLVER camp lately regarding a new singer for the band, although auditions have reportedly been ongoing.

Bassist Duff McKagan told us this week that the group has been a little frustrated with the submissions they've gotten and even wondered if they would ever find the right guy.

But McKagan also said that things have recently taken a positive turn: "In the last, I would say, about eight weeks, we got three guys in that were all really good - like, far and above, more fitting than the rest. So I can say this much: we're headed in a very positive direction, and you might be hearing something soon."

Hopefully it'll be either James Hetfield (Metallica), John Bush (Armored Saint, ex-Anthrax), Perry Farrell (Jane's Addiction, Porno for Pyros, Satellite Party), Sonny Sandoval (P.O.D.) or maybe Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, ex-Audioslave). It'd be cool if Slash and company picked one of them guys as the new singer.

I highly doubt it'll be Hetfield.

Cornell would be near perfect in my opinion.

Just a heads up, in the full article, McKagen says "it won't be Chris Cornell or anyone like that" so don't get your hopes up for a big name. Especially Cornell.

^LMAO what DID come of that stupid-arse idea???

Dear Velvet Revolver: I do not care about you. Or Chris Cornell. Therefore he would be an excellent choice for you. Then I can just not care about one group instead of two acts :)

I've got an excellent idea, they could be the first band that makes music for the deaf. Easy to make an album, you don't need a signer, nor do you need and instrument. It would please us and it would be easy for them...

I tried very hard to like this band, and I was a huge fan of Scott Weiland, but damn, this band is too light for me...haha.
Especially compared to the heavy stuff I have been listening to, lately. Slash will always be a great guitar player, but I never really liked this band. Therefore - Who gives a shxt??? I don't .

TxMH, couldn't agree more. I love and still listen to old GnR, but never got into VR although they are pretty badass live. But then, I'll go watch a lot of live bands whose albums I would never buy.
