Velvet Revolver’s Matt Sorum Talks Guns N’ Roses Reunion


June 23, 2008

Matt Sorum thinks Guns N’ Roses will get back together. “I’m sure it’ll happen eventually,” he says.

The one-time GN’R drummer and current member of the singer-less Velvet Revolver isn’t so sure about his involvement in a reunion, however. “They could be having meetings about it right now. They could be in a bomb shelter, with Axl and Slash and Duff. And Izzy! Maybe Steven Adler – I don’t know. I’d probably be the very, very, very last guy to get the call.”

Still, Sorum insists he isn’t sitting around waiting for the phone to ring. He’s got his mind on Velvet Revolver and their search for a new frontman. During the recent summer NAMM show, MusicRadar sat down with Sorum in the crowded bar of his hotel to talk about the states of VR and GN’R, the rumor of his involvement with Oasis, and how he handles the vicissitudes of lead singers. The engaging and candid skin basher was happy to opine away. And when it comes to Scott Weiland, he doesn’t hold back.
