UPDATE: DAYS OF THE NEW Frontman Unlikely To Land Gig With Ex-GUNS N' ROSES Members
Contrary to a press release issued by the DAYS OF THE NEW camp suggesting that the group's founder, Travis Meeks, is the frontrunner for the vocalist position in the new band of former GUNS N' ROSES members Slash (guitar), Duff McKagan (bass), Izzy Stradlin (guitar), and Matt Sorum (drums), a source close to ex-GNR camp has informed BLABBERMOUTH.NET that Meeks is unlikely to land the much-coveted slot, which remains unfilled at the present time.

Meeks, who is currently working on a new DAYS OF THE NEW album for an early 2003 release, is said to have put down his vocals over several tracks written by Slash and Co. as part of the auditioning process, but has not come up with anything that has caught the ear of the guitarist, who is said to have a very specific idea of what he is looking for.

The as-yet-unnamed band who have been together since May have already auditioned a number of well-known candidates, including ex-BUCKCHERRY frontman Joshua Todd, PSYCHOTICA's Pat Briggs, LIT's A. Jay Popoff and former NEUROTICA singer Kelly Shaefer.

Although Izzy is said to be involved in the writing process for the group's upcoming debut album, he will not be touring with the band, who have now officially recruited McKagan's LOADED bandmate Dave Kushner as a session guitarist for all live appearances in support of the CD.
