[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Slipknot[/lastfm] lead vocalist Corey Taylor alluded to the fact that he could be [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Velvet Revolver[/lastfm]’s new frontman. The spot has been vacant since vocalist Scott Weiland quit the group in 2008 and rumors have been circulating ever since.

When Taylor was asked about the claims regarding his choice to join Velvet Revolver he refused to confirm or deny anything. “To be continued!” he added, leaving us hanging in wait. The band actually said they have found their new lead singer at the end of last year but they wouldn’t spill the beans on who it is.  Two potential candidates that auditioned included [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Scars On Broadway[/lastfm] singer Frankie Perez and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Spacehog[/lastfm] frontman Royston Langdon.

In other news, Taylor confirmed that he has written his first book “The Seven Deadly Sins” is due for release in the US on July 12.

When Taylor was asked to expand upon the details of his book he said, “It’s about me basically saying they’re not sins, they’re things we’re born with, things that we deal with and things that in the long run help us to be better people. [pullquote quote=”So it’s me kind of taking the piss out of the whole sin thing.”]So it’s me kind of taking the piss out of the whole sin thing, but also balancing it with stories from growing up, from being on the road and how I handled these ‘deadly sins’ and hopefully came out on the other side as a better person.”

    As a Slipknot fan, I’m not sure how I feel about this. Have ya’ll heard of The Black Dots of Death? They sound like a cross
 between ICP and Slipknot. I like their music much better than anything VR has ever put out. Check out some of their music here:

      this comment is for the both of u. but mostly at rocketgirl….first off i have no clue where the hell u get that they sound anything like slipknot,AT ALL.!!! and for two…this song f**kin blows and cant c how anything these ppl has produced could ever sound like anything but garbage. it just sounds to me like icp attempted to actually have some talent and picked up some instruments and failed horribly. b/c everyone whos anyone knows that icp has absolutely no talent except for being on their knees takin it like a bitch. that is all.
