Appetite for Creation: The Matt Sorum Interview

Celene Dion, Guns ‘n Roses, Tori Amos, Velvet Revolver, The Cult, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Kings of Chaos, and more. Matt Sorum is having an amazing career; music is only a part of it.


Matt has my vote for “The most interesting man in the world.” Let’s put it this way; he’s more than a Rock n Roll Hall of Fame drummer. He’s a singer, songwriter, arranger, guitarist, activist and philanthropist. His solo album Stratosphere is scheduled for release in March. He’s preparing for two separate tours, with Matt Sorum’s Fierce Joy and with Kings of Chaos, his new all-star rock project.

And, he’s a great interview. Enjoy.

This is the second in my series of interviews with some of the world’s top rock musicians for You can read my earlier interview with Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots here.
