Slash Talks About The Lack Of New Rock Singers

Slash has opened up about the lack of quality rock and roll singers, telling interviewer Gary Cool that his old band Velvet Revolver had a tough time finding a convincing frontman:

"Before we started working with Scott [Weiland], we held auditions back then and everything, at that time, was on CD that we would get. And we would get probably a couple of hundred submissions a week. And we did that six days a week for ten months. And I never wanna have to go through that experience again."

He added: "There's a lot of people that we tried out that we don't talk about. The more that time passes, the less rock and roll singers there seems to be. Like, that style of just really, sort of, from-the-heart, guttural rock and roll. It seems to be just getting more and more glossed up."

This week Slash dropped the first single "World on Fire" from his upcoming album of the same name.
