Lenny Kravitz has shut down rumor, saying that he will reload Velvet Revolver as their new frontman. In an exclusive interview with RollingStone.com, the singer says, "I know and love the Velvet Revolver guys but there is no truth to the story about me joining their band."
The rumor has flown in the media when he was spotted hanging in a studio with the rock group. Beside Lenny, other rock singers linked to the frontman position of the Velvet Revolver include Sebastian Bach, Van Halen's former singer Sammy Hagar and Liv Tyler's husband Royston Langdon.
According to a source, the Velvet have been rushing to find a singer with high profile to replace their original singer Scott Weiland, who left the band in April, because they will soon release a new album. Furthermore, the source says that among the candidates mentioned, Lenny is said to be the band's favorite. "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," the source says as quoted by The Sun.
Instead of joining the band as the rumor has said, Lenny has reportedly been busy of going across Europe. He will continue his promotional project for latest album 'It Is Time For A Love Revolution" in a tour called Love Revolution which has been scheduled internationally through the new year. A detailed schedule, including dates and locations of the tour, can be found on his official website
