GUNS N' ROSES star Slash's bid to turn his new singer search into a reality
TV talent show is fast becoming a joke - only three potential singers have
tried out and one of them refuses to appear on camera.
Slash and former G N' R bandmates Matt Sorum and Duff Mckagan have turned
their talent search into a new VH1 show, titled THE PROJECT - but the programme
is fast becoming a laughing stock.
The band has yet to decide upon a name and now the behind-the-scenes look
at how a rock band is constructed has fallen flat.
But Slash insists he's happy with the process so far, even though he's not
sure about being part of a reality show.
He says, "Documentary and reality are two different things, and when you
say reality show, it just sounds stupid.
"There's something inherently wrong with the whole concept of reality
shows - watching everybody's trials and tribulations and the stupidest aspects
of everyday life, or whatever it is that goes on, usually borders on
"What we're doing with VH1 is just documenting what we've been doing as
far as looking for a singer. They're not going to our house and coming out with
us to dinner and going with us to the gas station and watching us fight. So
let's put that
whole reality concept to rest."
