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”]

Guns N’ Roses’ DJ Ashba Cites Production Issues for Band’s Concert Tardiness

Jason Merritt, Getty Images Guns N’ Roses have taken a few knocks in recent years for appearing onstage late or rolling past curfews as a result, but one of the main reasons for that occurrence is the production value that they’re bringing to audiences around the world. Guitarist DJ Ashba tells Australia’s Yahoo7 News that the production issues are a common reason for the delay in getting the band to the stage. He explains, “We have a huge rig and pyrotechnics so often it’s the case of fitting all that into the venue. Our number one priority is to make the shows safe. [The criticism from fans on social media] kills us as a band because we’re not doing any of this on purpose. Our main goal is to go and give the fans a show they will never forget and we understand how expensive tickets are. We take that into account and when we do hit the stage, it’s almost impossible to get us off.” The guitarist also addressed the sometimes negative perception of frontman Axl Rose in the media, explaining, “I think a lot of people and the press try to blow it up and say he’s an a–hole, but everyone can be an a–hole if you get them on the wrong day. One thing people don’t seem to get is that he’s genuinely funny and he’s always joking around and telling stories to make people laugh. I always say that if he wasn’t a musician, he’d be a great comedian. I wish the world could see that side of him because it’s the opposite of what people have branded in their brains.” Even though Ashba is one of the last members to join the current Guns N’ Roses lineup, he says that Rose has done nothing but treat his bandmates like gold since he started. He adds, “He lets us write our own solos and gives everybody their time to shine on stage and I think that says a lot about who he is. He has no problem sharing the spotlight, in fact he quite likes it.” Guns N’ Roses will next take the stage this March in Australia.

Ex-Guns N’ Roses Drummer Steven Adler Thankful to Have a ‘Second Chapter’

New Ocean Media Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler is branching out with his own band, appropriately named Adler , and the band’s debut full-length, ‘Back From the Dead,’ carries a straight-ahead rock sound that proves Mr. A means business. Now, Adler is opening up about the message behind the album, and he says he hopes it gives him a fresh start in the music business. “Every musician, their goal in life is to play music that people love and I’ve accomplished my goal,” he told goJimmygo . “I was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and left that chapter of my life and those people in the past. Good and bad, I’ve loved and am thankful for that chapter. I’m thankful that I survived that chapter and am able to have a second chapter. I want to start afresh and become relevant again.” Adler says recording the album was a blast, especially when it came to getting guitar great Slash involved. “It was wonderful,” Adler said. “Just to have him be proud enough and believe in me enough again after all of the things that have happened. “I have to prove myself every second of every day and it got to where I’ve proved myself enough for Slash to be happy and want to be a part of this record. It feels great that we have such a history together. I really care about what he thinks and feels about me.” Things are looking up for Steven Adler, as evidenced by Loudwire’s stellar review of his band’s ‘Back From the Dead’ album.
