Velvet Revolver are an american supergroup from Rancho Santa Margarita, California. They were formed in 2002 by former Guns N' Roses members Slash (lead guitar), Duff McKagan (bass), Matt Sorum (drums) and former Stone Temple Pilots members Dave Kushner (rhythm guitar) and Scott Weiland (lead vocalist). Scott left the band in 2008 after a falling out with some of the members, and they have since been on hiatus. However, in 2010, Slash, Duff and Matt began auditioning for a new singer for the band and in early 2011, rumours circulated that Corey Taylor of Slipknot may be the new lead singer.
