RECKLESS SPECULATION OF THE DAY: WHAT IF PERRY FARRELL IS THE NEW SINGER FOR VELVET REVOLVER?

170

I just wanna be clear, right off the bat, that this is just me playing “What If?” I’m not breaking a story, I don’t have a source, it’s Monday, it’s a slow news day, and I just got to thinking. I don’t want this to be like the time that I said it might be cool if Whitfield Crane joined Anthrax and then some putz put it on Wikipedia and asked Crane about it in an interview, and asked as though it were a bona fide fact or even a real “rumor.” THIS IS JUST ME HAVING FUN.

Here’s the reasoning behind my total b.s. speculation:

  • Slash joined Farrell on-stage at Lollapalooza this past weekend to play a cover of “Jane Says.”
  • Duff McKagan has now said that Velvet Revolver have “been working with who’s a really good singer and a great guy. I really hope he’s the one.” Now, one would have every right to assume that McKagan is referring to rumored Weiland replacement Royston Langdon
  • …except that Matt Sorum recently said that “We got a call from a pretty big guy who wants to be our singer… we’ll see what happens in the next couple of months.” Now, “a pretty big guy” could obviously be any number of people, but I have a hard time believing it’s Langdon. I just don’t know anyone who would consider him “big.”

So, what do you guys think about the possibility of Farrell being the new singer for VR? He’d be a pretty huge change from Scott Weiland, that’s for damn sure…
