Excerpts from Blabbermouth:
-----------------------------------

Dani Buarque of the "Lokaos Rock Show" (web site) conducted an interview with drummer Matt Sorum when he performed with the Brazilian rock band Kiara Rocks on July 13 at naMATAcaf in So Paulo, Brazil. You can now watch the chat below.

When asked if guitarist Slash's current solo career and intensive tour schedule is the primary reason Velvet Revolver has been out on hold, Sorum said, "Slash has been on tour almost two years now [but] it's not the reason [Velvet Revolver is inactive]. I think the reason is that is hasn't fallen into place yet. After [we parted ways with singer] Scott Weiland [in 2008] We had such a great first record, especially. The second album is still a good album, but It's hard to replace Scott for that particular band, I think. It's a bit of a gray area.

"Velvet Revolver, we really felt that we were Especially Slash, Duff and myself, we were the three main guys that started Velvet. 'Cause Scott came in much later. So to replace Scott, we felt, could be possible. And we tried a couple of guys and it didn't work out. [But] I don't wanna say it's over. It's just on a hiatus. We'll make music again together at some point."

Sorum was also asked if there was any truth to the rumors that former Skid Row singer Sebastian Bach auditioned for Velvet Revolver. "Sebastian tried out at the very beginning," Matt said. "Sebastian came in and sang six songs before we got Scott. But we knew at that time.

"It was funny, because when we did Velvet Revolver, we had our relationships with certain singers, but we wanted to make a modern rock album, and we had to figure out a way to make that work. We didn't wanna be like Guns N' Roses. We knew we had that in us anyway, especially the Slash and Duff sound was the initial sound of 'Appetite For Destruction', the way they played together and everything. Part of that chemistry was there, and when we added Scott, it brought it into a more modern rock element. He came more from grunge the Seattle [sound like] Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and bands like that. So it took it sort of forward. We became more of a modern rock band and we were on modern rock radio. Guns N' Roses wasn't even being played on those radio stations in America.

"When we asked Corey Taylor to join, that was my idea. I said, 'Why don't we get Corey Taylor from Slipknot?' And he's a great guy, number one he's an absolute sweetheart and he rocks. [But] Slash just didn't see it like the rest of us did. We liked it. We had ten songs. [We] could put the album out tomorrow. It's done. I said, 'Let's go.' But Slash wasn't feeling it. If we're not all feeling it together, we can't do it."
