Itz Lenny for Revolver
LENNY KRAVITZ has got himself a new job – as frontman of hard rock supergroup VELVET REVOLVER.
The rocker, who is playing at the V Festival in Staffordshire and Chelmsford this weekend, has been spotted in the studio with the band. The group, originally made up of former GUNS N’ ROSES and WASTED YOUTH members, including guitar legend SLASH, have been looking for a new frontman since their split from SCOTT WEILAND.
Other names that had been linked to the job include ex- VAN HALEN singer SAMMY HAGAR and SPACEHOG’s ROYSTON LANGDON. A new album is expected early next year.
A source said: “Velvet Revolver’s new album will draw heavily on their messy split with Scott. “The band wanted a big name who could easily hold his own and reckon Lenny is just the man for the job.”
Former wildman Lenny should be able to hold his own all right – he vowed earlier this year to stay celibate until he marries again.
