One On One With Mitch Lafon - Matt Sorum

Release Year: 
Drummer MATT SORUM guests on Ep. 281 of One On One With Mitch Lafon.
On this episode, current KINGS OF CHAOS and former GUNS N' ROSES drummer MATT SORUM discusses Hollywood Vampires and the recent Joe Perry scare, the possibility of a Kings Of Chaos album, remembers singer Scott Weiland, Guns N' Roses, and much more.
QUOTES from the interview:
Joe Perry (time 1.54): "That was pretty scary. In typical Alice Cooper tradition - they show must go on, so we just carried on playing."
Making an album with KINGS OF CHAOS (time 5.21): "I've got people asking me, 'Let's make a record,' but what is the record? I hope that it will, but it'll just have to happen naturally."
GUNS N' ROSES talk starts at 16.42:
Highlights: (17.34) - "I thought I was walking into a straight up rock band that was more like what they were doing on Appetite which was real straight forward rock n' roll music. It was a cross-breed of AC/DC and Aerosmith mixed in with a little Sex Pistols... Mixed with Nazareth. Then along came piano. These epic ten minute opuses. I was surprised."
Steven Adler (19.31): "When it came to learning the Appetite stuff for the live show, I tried to be very respectful of Steven parts and play them how they were written. Obviously, we've been accused of being different drummers but that's natural. I can't play like Steven and Steven can't play like me and that's ok, but when I came into the band they needed that guy that could kind of hold the fort together."
