Mina Caputo Talks About Auditioning for Velvet Revolver
Life of Agony singer Mina Caputo was recently interviewed by ‘Appetite for Distortion Podcast’ and discussed recording audition songs for Velvet Revolver to replace Scott Weiland.
story continued below…
“I don’t remember the name of one other song, but one of the songs was called Farce. One of the reasons why I don’t think I did get any further is it was actually about killing myself. The way I wrote the song melodically and lyrically, I thought it was kind of brilliant, but that lyrical content may have been too heavy or controversial. The chorus or pre-chorus was: ‘I wanted to kill myself.’ Then boom, going into Slash’s solo.
I went in a very Tiny Music direction, like the way Scott sounded on Tiny Music…Songs From The Vatican Gift Shop. I went in that Harry Nilsson and John Lennon rip the vocal fuckin’ chord up and bleed on the mic fuckin’ shit. So I wrote in that kind of style.”
Later on she stated, “There’s always light at the end of the tunnel. I believe that no matter what you’re going through, you can get through it. I don’t think suicide is the answer anymore. I always thought it was growing up in my 20’s and half of my 30’s, but that was because I was living a lie.
I was living for the public, for family, I was living for friends, I wasn’t living for myself ever. To be a public figure made it even worse. All the drug intake, that didn’t help the purity of anything, my mind, my soul, that just moulded me, like a fungi mould. There was no clarity because I was miserable, I didn’t want to live.”
