Lenny Kravitz Will Not Be Going Velvet Revolver’s Way

The truth quotient of the rumor that Lenny Kravitz would be replacing Weiland as the lead singer of Velvet Revolver has plummeted from 38% to zero, if Kravitz’s just-issued statement to Rolling Stone is to be believed. “I know and love the Velvet Revolver guys but there is no truth to the story about me joining their band,” he told the magazine. Looks like bloggers everywhere will have this story to kick around for a little longer! But where will it go next?

Now Kravitz has joined the long list of people who aren’t singing for Velvet Revolver–a star-studded roster of names that includes an ex-MTV VJ who now blogs, a guy from who’s married to a Playmate, an ex-Gilmore Girls cast member, and any of the contestants from the CBS game show Jingles–which lead singer should be the next piece of grist for the ever-churning rumor mill? Clearly, this needs to be solved by the always scientific method of Internet polling:
