Slash Confirms Corey Taylor Velvet Revolver Rumors
Slash has admitted the rumours about Corey Taylor being involved with Velvet Revolver are true but a final decision has yet to be made. The guitarist had been avoiding making any comment on the gossip, while the Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman simply said: "To be continued." Now it seems that's an accurate picture of the situation: due to Slash's touring commitments the band ran out of time to decide whether to bring Taylor on board as replacement for Scott Weiland, who was saked in 2008. Slash tells the Charlotte Observer: "There was truth to the rumour that we were looking at Corey but then I left for tour. So there's nothing being done at the moment. No decision has been made." Weiland's wayward behaviour and drug issues prompted his removal three years ago, after which the band went on hiatus. Slash previously commented that it was "just bad luck" he'd had problems with his frontmen referring to the collapse of the original GnR lineup when Axl Rose took over the outfit in the mid-1990s. Now the guitarist says: "Beggars can't be choosers. The most important thing is to find people who are musically capable, then you have to take their personality into account. It's something you need to accept within reason if they play the way you want them to play. "A lot of musicians are crazy that's what makes them great musicians." The ruling doesn't seem to apply to Taylor, however, widely regarded as a well-balanced character. McKagan last week described him as "a cool guy and a cool musician."
