VR news: On RBB (German tv), MTV2 (UK) & Jimmy Kimmel Live + 2002 Kelly Shaeffer vocalist audition song posted online
Apparently something VR related is supposed to be shown on German tv channel HBB tonight at 23:45

MTV2 in the UK are currently showing a half hour snippet of Slash, Duff and the rest of the Velvet Revolver guys performing exclusively live.

VELVET REVOLVER will be performing their new song, "Come On, Come In", live for the first time ever on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" airing Monday night, August 8 (technically on August 9) beginning at 12:05 a.m.

A VELVET REVOLVER vocalist audition tape, featuring former NEUROTICA/ATHEIST frontman Kelly Shaefer, has been posted online at Shaefer's official web site, KellyShaefer.com. The songs available for download are Eye for an Eye" (mp3, 3.1 MB) and "Room 169" (mp3, 1.7 MB). The tape in question was "a live demo recording [that] Slash and the gang had recorded in L.A. and sent to Kelly to write lyrics and sing on," reads a posting on Shaefer's web site. "After hearing [the four songs] he did, he was asked to come to L.A. [in late 2002] and jam with the band. Many news outlets had reported Kelly as the new singer, the jam went great, and Kelly was almost in. Scott Weiland announced he was leaving STONE TEMPLE PILOTS, and so he was inevitably chosen to be the guy! So this is a rare glimpse of what VELVET REVOLVER ALMOST sounded like."
