Hi,

From what I heard the guy's name is Tim and he lives in Oregon, he had apparently swarmed VR members, Duff's RAW Power team, and even Duff's new band Loaded and their respective agents with letters and Emails selling himself to them and had sent his audition tunes to them after receiving responses.

It was said he didn't want to conform to the whole commercialization of making scripted myspace video's, youtube performances etc to get the attention of the band, and chose the old fashion job/audition approach of putting pen to paper, or in his case fingers to keyboard! As he stated, "if I can't get their attention from reading something from my heart, how can I expect them to take me seriously, because everything I put into those letters & Emails shows my passion and perseverance"

That's about as much as I can tell you, but I can assure you that the possibility of this Australian guy fronting the band is as real as Bryan & Sam on youtube! Being an unknown and Australian is surely unique and a great twist to VR.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
