Former Guns N’ Roses Drummer Matt Sorum Recalls His Favorite Drinking Game

Taylor Hill, Getty Images He wasn’t the original Guns N’ Roses drummer, but Matt Sorum could definitely hold his own when it came to partying with his notoriously excessive bandmates. The drummer tells TMZ he had some good times over the years with drinking games, and he recalled his favorite in a video interview. Sorum says the game was called ‘Wear the Lamp Shade,’ and he describes it as follows: “You’d get drunk and do this shenanigans where you’d take the lamp shade off the top of the lamp and dance around with the lamp shade … usually I was naked and the next person you handed it to had to get naked.” The drummer says that it was fairly important that this game was played when there was an overabundant percentage of women to men in the room, thus making sure he’d see something he truly wanted to see. Though it’s been several years since his last major band Velvet Revolver did anything, Sorum has kept himself busy producing, recording with his other band Diamond Baby and playing drums will the all-star covers outfit Camp Freddy . He’s also been working on a solo album . Watch Matt Sorum Describe His Favorite Drinking Game [button href=”” title=”Next: Matt Sorum Discusses Velvet Revolver’s Uncertain Future” align=”center”]

Facebook: Sebastian Bach Sebastian Bach may be building up to the release of his live concert CD / DVD release, ‘ ABachalypse Now ,’ but there’s also plenty of fresh ideas floating around for the rocker at the moment. In a new studio update, Bach reveals that he’s been spending some time writing with Billy Idol guitar great Steve Stevens for his next record. Bach worked closely with talented young guitarist Nick Sterling on the 2011 album, ‘Kicking & Screaming,’ but the pair had a falling out toward the end of support for the record.

In his latest studio update that he posted on his Facebook page , Bach wrote: Ideas are just starting to take shape for the next studio record. The legendary guitarist / great friend Steve Stevens has come up with one track so far that will definitely be on my next record. It is a kick ass cool rock ‘n roll song that I guarantee will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck. Just how I like it. We are going to work on more songs together too. Also my guitar player Jeff George has come up with a couple of great ideas that we will also be demoing very soon. We are really going to get cracking on the new material right away and have a new studio album out sooner than you think! I am so happy to collaborate with Steve he has always been one of my favorite guitar players! We are going out rock this bitch down to the ground in 2013 mother truckers!
