Velvet Revolver may be stumped about who will be taking the reins of their outfit now that singer Scott Weiland is out of the picture, but Slash isn’t squandering any time—or creative inspiration—in the meantime. The guitarist told Spinner.com that he’s buckling down to work on a solo project.
"I'm working on it pretty aggressively right now while I have the time ’cause as soon as Velvet finds its singer, then it's going to be off to the races with that,” Slash said. "I'm using this little period to be able to do as much on my solo record as possible. I'm not sure exactly when it will come out, but hopefully it will come out before the Velvet record.
“It'll be my first solo record. All the other ones were just me putting other bands together and going out and just jamming. This will actually be a little bit more personal."
Slash has also been working with Velvet Revolver sans vocalist on some new material. Back in April, bassist Duff McKagan revealed that the band has written 12 songs.
