Spacehog's Royston Langdon in the running for Velvet Revolver frontman

While Scott Weiland treks cross-country on the Stone Temple Pilots reunion tour, his other former band, Velvet Revolver, is hard at work finding a new singer. EW.com has learned that Royston Langdon —frontman for Spacehog (who had a 1995 hit with “In the Meantime” ) and estranged husband of Liv Tyler — is in the running for the gig after several successful jam sessions in Los Angeles. “They all got along great,” says an insider. “It was really a refreshing change for the band.” Velvet Revolver’s management couldn’t confirm that an offer had been made, and would only say that they’re still auditioning prospective singers. But an RCA source says that Langdon is “definitely in the mix.”

    A fantastic choice! I’ve always liked Spacehog and wished they would’ve gone further, especially here in the States. In The Meantime was such a strong single and all…

    Please, no. They were mediocre enough with Scott Whineland; this will be awful! Chck out the Youtube clips of Slash jamming with this guy; he sucks. There’s a reason we haven’t heard from him since 95.

    I love Spacehog, and think he would be a good choice, but this kinda bums me out. I was hoping for another season of RockStar and was thinking VR would have been awesome :(

    Just saw Royston Langdon with a reunited Spacehog Monday night in Los Angeles. He’s amazing!! The videos on YouTube with Slash just don’t do him justice at all.

  • slal

    scott wasnt bad but this guy will ruin them i mean come onthey should try and get chriss cornell

  • Bam

    Can’t believe the negativity about Roy, he’s got one of the best voices around and could really take VR further. The only think that makes this bad news is that it makes the recently discussed Spacehog reunion much less likely. I love both bands but the Hog are a class above VR

    i like velvet revolver but i was kinda hoping that chris cornell would take it but it all good space hog where a good band and roy will inject a good lead vocal

  • Steve Mend

    Velvet Revolver Rocks! They made me enjoy music again. Scott was a good choice, but who needs all the antics? I’m sure the band will choose someone perfect.
