Right, what with Lenny 'Love' Kravitz shooting down rumours that he is Velvet Revolver's new frontman, and the band denying they've hired some other guy called Royster LongJohn, we've decided to give Slash & Co a leg-up with our own shortlist of possible candidates...
Although John Lennon's killer has just been denied parole and will be in jail at least until 2010, that should be around the time Velvet pull their fingers out and actually pick someone... TG Odds: 40/1
Call us optimistic, but we reckon a G'N'R reunion at some point in the future is just too big a money-spinner for both sides to turn down... TG Odds: 3/1
The Wolfmother frontman has just found himself bandless after his drummer and bassist quit to form their own group. He's got the right vocal range too. TG Odds: 7/2
Roundly loathed by pretty much everyone in music (besides a few Creed fans), the former Mrs Tremonti has just the ego to cut it as Weiland's replacement... TG Odds: 20/1
Could the ligger-in-chief and one half of Tenacious D fit VR in his hectic album-film-baby-album-film-baby schedule? Probably not, but it would be f*cking funny! TG Odds: 200/1
Well, she's everywhere f*cking else. TG Odds: 500/1
