Singer also pens new book about life on the road
Rumours had been circulating that he could fill the spot which has been vacant since Stone Pilots vocalist Scott Weiland quit the supergroup in 2008.
When asked by Billboard.com, Taylor refused to confirm or deny the rumours. “To be continued!” he added revealing nothing more on the subject.
The band said they had found their new lead singer at the end of last year but they wouldn’t reveal who it was.
Meanwhile, Taylor also revealed that he has written his first book ‘The Seven Deadly Sins: Settling the Argument Between Born Bad and Damaged Good’, due for release in the US on July 12.
“It’s about me basically saying they’re not sins,” he added. “They’re things we’re born with, things that we deal with and things that in the long run help us to be better people.
“So it’s me kind of taking the piss out of the whole sin thing, but also balancing it with stories from growing up, from being on the road and how I handled these ‘deadly sins’ and hopefully came out on the other side as a better person.”
