Velvet Revolver 'Just Waiting for the Right Singer,' Says Duff McKagan
Bassist Duff McKagan recently touched the subject of Velvet Revolver hiatus return, confirming that the group will definitely work again in the future. During a chat with Billboard, McKagan stated it's only a matter of finding the right vocalist right now, naming the chemistry among the band members as something worth fighting for. "We talk about it every now and again," he kicked off. "Slash and Matt [Sorum] and Dave [Kushner] and I played in South Africa at the beginning of June ... and of course we talked about it." McKagan then gave more specific details about the current state of VR affairs. "We've tried out a bunch of singers, but I think we're just waiting for the right person to come along," he said. "It'll just happen. But the chemistry of Matt and Slash and Dave and I is really good, so you don't want to let that just go away." The bassist also briefly discussed former Velvet Revolver fronman Scott Weiland and his rift with Stone Temple Pilots, simply describing it as unsurprising. "You could kind of see it coming, I suppose," McKagan said. "It's a sad situation any way you look at it. That guy ... You hope [Weiland] pulls it together; I shared enough good times with that guy that I wish him nothing but the best." Since 2008, Velvet Revolver are on indefinite hiatus and on a lookout for the new singer. The group's latest studio effort, "Libertad," dropped in July 2007 via RCA Records, selling 92,000 copies in the US within the first week and debuting at No. 5 on the Billboard 200 chart.
