Slash Reveals That Velvet Revolver’s Frontman Search Is Still On

Liz Ramanand, Loudwire

With his latest solo album ‘Apocalyptic Love,’ Slash has been busy on tour with Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators but things aren’t running so smoothly for his other band Velvet Revolver.

In an interview with the Aquarian, Slash spoke candidly about Velvet Revolver’s current state. “Unfortunately, as for Velvet Revolver, we’ll remain on a hiatus until we find the right singer to replace Scott.”

The guitar great did speak highly about Ours vocalist Jimmy Gneeco, who joined Slash and his crew onstage at one show. “Jimmy Gnecco is an amazing singer and we really wanted to work with him. The unfortunate thing was that our schedules conflicted. Whenever we wanted to fly him out to work with us, he was already engaged in something else, but Jimmy was without a doubt the type of singer we were looking for!”

Slash will still be rocking out some sludgy Velvet Revolver tunes in his set while one support for his latest disc ‘Apocalyptic Love’ with Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators.

“We play stuff from Snakepit, my last solo record, and the new one, ‘Apocalyptic Love,’ and we’ll sprinkle in some Velvet Revolver stuff and GNR stuff that the fans want to hear, but the setlist changes almost every night,” says the guitarist. For a full list of dates and cities, go here.
