LENNY KRAVITZ SAYS “THERE IS NO TRUTH TO THE STORY” ABOUT JOINING VELVET REVOLVER:
August 12, 2008
Contrary to internet reports today, Lenny Kravitz is not set to become the new singer of Velvet Revolver.
The singer told RollingStone.com, “I know and love the Velvet Revolver guys but there is no truth to the story about me joining their band.”
Rumors out of the U.K. claimed that Kravitz was “spotted” in the studio with the now-singer-less Velvet Revolver and suggested that Kravitz has just enough star power to fill the role vacated by Scott Weiland (who pretty much filled the role vacated by Axl Rose). However, Kravitz has been busy touring Europe and hasn’t had any contact with the VR camp.
Kravitz is just the latest vocalist to be essentially handed VR’s microphone by the rumor mill, following artists like Sebastian Bach, Spacehog’s Royston Langdon and that guy who won Rock Star: Supernova.
