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.

Hey I heard the same thing through a local radio station in DC, the guy supposedly sang at an open air concert and caught some attention there. It was also mentioned he was from australia but living in OR. I think it would be a good move for VR.

Well everyone is doing it, so here is my audition video. I sing in a rock band out of Jersey called Smokin' Aces. Was actually out in LA a couple months ago recording at Matt Sorum's private studio. Yes that is where I'm singing in the video. To clarify I was not auditioning for the band, you will see Rocco Guarino in the video who is an amazing producer and has worked with Velvet Revolver. He was producing an EP for my band Smokin' Aces. Matt did stop by the studio a couple times while we were recording and all I have are nice things to say about the guy. Anyway, here is my vid, tell me what you think!
