Velvet Revolver find new singer?

Plus Duff McKagan gives dating advice

Velvet Revolver bassist Duff McKagan has revealed more details about the band’s search for a singer to replace Scott Weiland, who left last April.

Despite holding auditions sporadically over the last eight months, the band have yet to find a permanent vocalist. However, McKagan told Pulse Of Radio that things were beginning to look up in their search.

“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,” he said.


“So I can say this much: we’re headed in a very positive direction, and you might be hearing something soon.”

In August, McKagan revealed that Velvet Revolver had turned down former Spacehog frontman Royston Langdon for the role.

During the band’s downtime, McKagan has been keeping himself busy by writing a column for Seattle Weekly. He recently wrote a piece offering men dating advice, revealing that during his Guns N’ Roses days, he used to wear women’s lingerie.

“My Seattle Seahawks (Sea Gals) cheerleader lingerie had usually been my ‘go to’ undergarment to make myself feel good and surprise a lucky girl if the night went that far,” he wrote.
