Country rock star Shooter Jennings has revealed in a recent interview with Classic Rock magazine that he was offered the job as vocalist for Velvet Revolver and not just once. Speaking on the offer he said:

"They’ve asked me twice, dude. I've done a couple of shows with those guys, and they asked me a couple of years ago and they asked me again last year to be the singer. And it pained my heart not to say yes, because those guys are the best players in the world. They’re literally one of the best bands I’ve ever heard and to be able to sing with them has been amazing. But I had a talk with them about it, and I would absolutely still, to this day, get in a room and jam with them, but first of all, I knew I was gonna be doing another record and that what I wanted to do was really special to me, and I didn’t feel I could stifle that."

Shooter Jennings would have been amazing! His solo country stuff is really good, but where he really rocks is with his old band "Stargunn" he has the perfect voice to compliment the rest of the band.
He is my first choice, hands down, and it hurts me to see he turned them down. Hopefully Slash and the boys stay persistent and Shooter gives in, because that would make VR better than ever!
