I thought it was an unlikely pairing when I first saw it, I dunno? Never really saw Matt Sorum as a Bluesy drummer. Of course, I guess this isn't really pure Blues.

Looks like Matt was gettin' the job done there.

Wouldn't it be a total GAS to jam with Billy?

You don't just walk into a gig like Guns N' Roses at their peak without being a complete player who can do just about anything. I'm not surprised at all.

Thanks for posting this. I knew he was touring with Billy but I hadn’t seen any videos yet. I really like Matt’s playing on about everything he’s done. Seems like a cool cat too.

My guess is Sorum is a Dean Castronova type of guy, a go to, Johnny one take type of player that gets cast in any type of situation.

I met Matt and his dog at a beachfront hotel in Laguna Beach a few years ago while he was on his annual sabbatical. Really nice guy, and after hearing our band name he advised me to have it trademarked right away!

Late 90s when the NAMM show was held in Los Angeles LP & Remo sponsored a drum circle every evening outside in front of the convention center, led & directed by Arthur Hull. Always a fun attraction for a small crowd of participants.

I'm slapping away on a conga and had that feeling someone was behind me, like literally over my shoulder. Turned around and it was Matt, grinning away. He's a big guy.

The American musician has an estimated net worth of $145 million. He owes his fortune to smart stock investments, substantial property holdings, lucrative endorsement deals with CoverGirl cosmetics. He also owns several restaurants (the “Fat Sorum Burger” chain) in Washington, a Football Team (the “Mission Viejo Angels”), has launched his own brand of Vodka (Pure Wondersorum - US), and is tackling the juniors market with a top-selling perfume (With Love from Matt) and a fashion line called “Matt Sorum Seduction”.

LOL

That perfume nonsense really takes the cake.
