Velvet Revolver/ex-Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash's Official Fan Site has been updated with the following:

"On the net, rumor has it that RCA has dropped Velvet Revolver. Slash says that while it is true that VR is no longer with RCA, the truth is not as negative as the rumor.

The band owed RCA money for a third album which at this time they are unable to produce (no singer). The band and RCA parted amicably.

When they are recording the new album, it most likely will be for a new label."

In early October, Slash spoke to about a number of topics. A few excerpts from the chat follow: What is the status with Velvet Revolver?

"Everything is cool. We’ve been writing this whole time, but we’re on this quest for a singer."
It wasn’t so long ago when you were in this situation, back when the band was getting together.

"We spent at that time 10 months listening to 200 singers a week, and chased after Scott (Weiland), and managed to make that work. We were off and running, but then things fell short and we’re at it again. It’s actually sort of a blessing, because we originally wanted to do something really heavy and it took a different turn, especially on the last record. This time around we’re not going to make any compromises." Did you learn any lessons learned from the last search?

Slash: "Singers are a very interesting breed. It’s hard to be choosy when it comes to finding somebody talented enough to be a really great frontman for a rock n' roll band. There’s always something that comes along with it, just like with any musician. It’s all worth it if you manage to get those magical moments."
