Matt_Sorum’s Biography

Matt Sorum was born on November 19, 1960 in Long Beach, California, under the name of Matthew Sorum.

Since very young Matt was attracted to music, and mainly because of the drums, which he started practicing, while listening to bands like AC / DC, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Genesis, Gentle Giant, Billy Cobham, Tonny Williams and Lenny White.

In 1976 he became a professional musician, in the city of Los Angeles, when he began playing in more or less insignificant bands of the Californian circuit.

The first group in which he participated was the so-called “Prophecy”, but this lasted very little time, since the low professional level of the musicians that integrated it, soon made it disappear. At that time, the composer musician Stephen Douglas, contacted Sorum, as he was interested in proposing to join him in his new band, called “Chateau”.

With Chateau, Matt began touring the musical circuit of Hollywood, and little by little the band was gaining relative importance, until having managed to get some local radio stations in rotation one of the first demo singles in the group. However, shortly after the band was dissolved, and Sorum began to participate in various Hollywood groups as “Population Five”, among others.

In 1988 the drummer was contacted by Tori Amos, in order to incorporate him into his band, called “T Kant Tori Read”, for the recording of his debut album.

The following year, Matt collaborated with Johnny Crash, in some of the songs that were published in his record production, also, during that time, he worked as a sessionist for a large number of bands.

Finally, in 1989 he became a member of the famous group The Cult, for the tour that the group was doing that year, and after the tour ended, he continued in the group, with which he worked for several years. < / p>

In 1990, after the dismissal of Steven Adler, the members of Guns N ‘Roses put themselves in the fast search of a replacement for the drummer, since the band was in the middle of the recordings for his plate “Use Your Illusion “.

By a recommendation of the guitarist Slash, who had watched Sorum live on several occasions and in different groups, and had noticed the drummer’s talent and professionalism, the other members of GN’R offered to audition him to evaluate the possibility of hiring him.

After that first audition, the musicians decided immediately that Sorum was Adler’s replacement.

So it was that during the presentation of Guns N ‘Roses at the Rock in Rio II festival, held in Brazil in 1991, Matt was introduced to the public as the band’s new drummer.

Finally in 1997, Sorum was fired by Axl Rose after he had a dispute in a studio with guitarist Paul Tobias who would be the new member of the band taking the position of Rhythmic Guitarist after Gilby Clarke was expelled from the band for a discussion with the vocalist and leader of the band, Axl Rose

By maintaining a strong friendship with guitarist Slash, Matt decided to follow in his footsteps, and collaborated on Slash’s solo project, Slash’s Snakepit

Later, Sorum along with Slash and Duff McKagan began to forge the new project, called Velvet Revolver, while participating as a member of the band Camp Freddy.

On the other hand, Sorum has edited his solo work, “Hollywood Zen”, an album that brings together his talent, and reflects the lived experiences of the musician, both in his professional and personal aspect, a work where the drummer expresses, through his talent, his two decades with rock & amp; roll, relationships, addiction to life in Los Angeles, among other personal stories.
