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

Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour was the singer that came "closest" to replacing Scott Weiland in Velvet Revolver, but he was eventually ruled out of the running by Slash, who felt that Corey's voice "didn't have certain elements" the guitarist thought it needed.

While the team-up of Taylor with Velvet Revolver never officially took off, Velvet guitarist Slash did confirm that the band got together with Taylor to jam and even record some new material.

Asked during a question-and-answer session with Australia's Rolling Stone magazine why Taylor and former SKID ROW singer Sebastian Bach weren't the right singers for Velvet Revolver, and which vocalist came closest to replacing Weiland, Slash said: "Well, Sebastian [auditioned for the Velvet Revolver singer spot] before Scott [became a member of the band]. And I love Sebastian, but, if you can imagine, it sounded sort of like 'Skid N' Roses.' It was cool, but you knew that everybody who heard it was gonna be, like, 'Oh, yeah, that makes sense.' It was a little bit too predictable. But as far as [vocalists that we have auditioned] since Scott [was dismissed from the band], probably [the one that came] the closest [to landing the gig] would have to be Corey, 'cause everybody was rallying for him. And I love Corey to death, but something about it was just a little bit too… What's the word for it? You know how Corey sings. It's a very macho kind of thing. But it didn't have certain elements I thought it needed. So we just didn't go down that path. And that was the closest so far."
