Amongst news that former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach will join season two of Gone Country, VH1’s ratings goldmine, Bach spoke with a Florida radio DJ yesterday and also admitted that he’s talked to Slash about the possibility of joining Velvet Revolver, which parted ways last month with vocalist Scott Weiland. Bach’s union with Velvet Revolver would be “awkward,” Bach said, explaining he prefers his current solo work to the work of Velvet Revolver and that “it would all depend on music. I wouldn’t just join the band just to join the band. If we came up with some incredible new songs, then maybe I’d think about it.”

Free MP3 of the Day: Jessie Baylin's "Was I On Your Mind"

Singer Jessie Baylin is longtime BFF to Scarlett Johansson—who makes no bones about standing front-and-center to support her gal pal when she's giggin' in Tinsel Town—and the source of some well-documented inter-band controversy after becoming engaged to Kings of Leon drummer Nathan Followill. But neither of these associations are at all necessary to make Baylin the belle of the music industry's ball; that she's capable of all on her own. With a hand from Grammy winner Jessie Harris and Whiskeytown's Mike Daly, the blonde bombshell writes love songs with a bite and delivers each of them with a voice that's steeped in twang (a byproduct of her recent relocation to Nashville?) and soulful enough to stand up to Rumours-era Stevie Nicks.

Free Download: BOB MOULD "THE SILENCE BETWEEN US" A true punk-rock veteran, Bob Mould fronted the enormously influential punk act Hüsker Dü in the ’80s, and led college rock act Sugar in the ’90s. For the past decade he’s released solo material under his own name, most recently District Line, which teamed him with Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty.
