Will Velvet Revolver’s New Singer Be An American Idol?
Velvet Revolver may find their new frontman in the form of an American Idol contestant.
At least that’s what MusicRadar – a sister site to ClassicRockMagazine.com – is speculating.
Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash appeared on American Idol to coach contestants for ‘rock week’ – and one singer apparently stood out.
Music Radar correspondent – and sometime Classic Rock contributor – Joe Bosso reports:
‘All performed admirably but nobody seemed to truly hit it out of the ballpark until Adam Lambert came on and lit into an I’m-going-for-it version of the Led Zeppelin classic Whole Lotta Love.’
Bosso speculates: ‘Wonder if Slash asked Lambert to come on down for a Velvet Revolver audition? If he didn’t, perhaps Jimmy Page might want to give him a ring. Stranger things have happened.’
We’ve just watched Lambert’s American Idol performance here…
…and frankly, if this twerp ends up in Velvet Revolver, we’ll eat Slash’s hat.
Nevertheless, Slash reecently wrote the following on his Twitter page: ‘Those “AI” kids can sing their asses off, especially Adam.”
What do you think? Are we wrong? Could Lambert indeed cut it as VR’s new frontman? Post your comments!
