Is Jimmy Gnecco Velvet Revolver’s New Frontman?
Is Velvet Revolver’s search for a new singer finally over? Drummer Matt Sorum says Ours frontman Jimmy Gnecco could be the man to step into Scott Weiland’s pointy shoes.
A precedent, of sorts, has already been set.
At the Road Recovery concert in New York City back in September, Gnecco sang lead vocals on three songs (Slither by Velvet Revolver, It’s So Easy by Guns N’ Roses, Hey Joe by Jimi Hendrix) with Slash, Duff McKagan, Gilby Clarke and Matt Sorum, plus Dave Kushner.
“So we’ll see how that goes,” Sorum told The Vine of the auditioning of Gnecco. “Then we’ve got a couple of other ideas. It looks like Slash is going to make another album, but I’m not sure about his touring and stuff yet. But we’re all open to it and interested in trying to do something together.”
