Rockers Velvet Revolver
are close to finding a frontman to replace former singer Scott Weiland
. The supergroup, featuring former Guns N' Roses
, Duff McKagan
and Matt Sorum, fired Weiland after a series of public band fights in April and have been looking for a new singer ever since.
The search stalled late last year after Liv Tyler
's ex-husband, British rocker Royston Langdon, formerly of the band Spacehog
, auditioned for the group - but McKagan insists there's new hope.
He tells ThePulseofRadio.com
, "In the last, I would say, about eight weeks, we got three guys in that were all really good - like, far and above, more fitting than the rest... We're headed in a very positive direction, and you might be hearing something soon."
