Velvet Revolver is considering the option of auditioning a Scott Weiland replacement—the singer quit/was kicked out on April 1—through a special Web site.
"That's been something that's developing at this point," Slash, the band's guitarist, told Billboard.com. "[It should be happening] in the next month or so.
He added, "We're at that point of just listening to different things ... it's one of those kind of situations where you can't really explain it to anybody because you'll know it when you hear it. So I'm waiting to get that feeling of, 'Yeah that's it.'"
For now, the band plans on still playing a Vegas gig booked before Weiland's dismissal.
"I'm not gonna name any names, but a bunch of well-known people will get up and sing some songs, and then also bring up a couple people that we think are pretty good and might sing a couple songs," Slash explained. "So it'd just be for fun."
