About this album

Last October 2008 I wrote, recorded and submitted 2 songs as part of an audition process for rock band Velvet Revolver (featuring guitarist Slash, formerly of Guns N’ Roses). Early last year they fired their singer Scott Weiland, and as of June 2009 they are still without a frontman - as confirmed by their management at Sanctuary Group.

I believe these tracks prove my value as a candidate to be the new vocalist for Velvet Revolver. Do you agree?

Please download, share and listen to ‘Mercy Angel’ and ‘Cherry’ and if you like what you hear then please provide some “encouragement” to Velvet Revolver and their management team @ www.VelvetRevolver.com

Thanks for listening and rock on ;)


FYI -> I wrote and recorded the vocal parts, Slash and the band wrote and recorded the rest.

    Outstanding vocals Will! But in my humble opinion, your voice is too clean for VR. I would still listen to a VR album with you singing, but it is quite a change from Scott. Maybe you should go get strung out on something, and then try singing…. Hmm, bad idea… never mind.

    nice vocals! well okay, giving it the title of "Will Black + VR" is a bit too high rated by yourself i guess. but anyway, i like it a lot =) if you'd like to, please check out my band's music on http://www.last.fm/music/Mourning+Engines

    To answer ManuelGnR's question: The tracks were sent to me by VR's management as part of an ongoing audition process with the band for a new vocalist. I then wrote and recorded the vocals over the band and sent the whole package back to them for review in October 2008. No response either way after numerous follow ups as of Apr 10, 2009.

    It says ''Will Black + Velvet Revolver''. Did you actually play with them?

    Not too shabby. Just watch the high notes because it seems that there's a tiny bit of difficulty changing from a very high note to a lower note vocal-wise. Other than that it's pretty neat. Best of luck.
