As previously reported, it was strongly rumoured that Corey Taylor would be joining Vevlet Revolver as their new vocalist. Although neither Slash or Duff McKagan confirm or deny the truth to the statement, it has been claimed it’s been blown out of proportion.
Slash says, “A couple of people have said one thing or another, but it’s been blown out of proportion. I’ve made no comment on that one.”
Duff McKagan talks more about Corey, stating, “Not only does he have a great voice, he’s got the ability to tap the dark stuff and have it be real. Great lead singers have the ability to tap that. No inhibitions helps as well. Axl Rose and Scott Weiland are two of the best frontmen ever. Corey Taylor is one of those guys as well. He can tap it. He is a bad dude though. I like him as a human being and a singer. He’s the voice of a whole new generation.”
No further comment has been made regarding the truth in the rumour.
