Sebastian Bach Won't Rock Velvet Revolver's Mike

May 7, 2008 10:32 AM ET

Despite getting the thumbs up from outgoing singer Scott Weiland, Sebastian Bach will likely not take over the lead-singing vacancy in Velvet Revolver, saying it would be "really awkward." Talking to Tampa radio's "The Buckethead Show," Bach said he likes his own new album Angel Down more than the VR records, plus Bach would rather be singing "old songs" by Skid Row than Guns N' Roses. Most importantly, "I'm very close friends with Axl," Bach said. "Axl's been so nice to me, I don't think I would feel comfortable just joining Velvet Revolver and singing his songs every night. So I don't think that's gonna happen." Besides, Bach's calendar might be booked for a couple weeks after signing up to participate in the honky-tonk debacle known as Gone Country 2.

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
