mattsorumheader

Matt Sorum, famed for his work on the drum stool with Guns N' Roses, The Cult and Velvet Revolver, has revealed that he is working on a new solo album.

Sorum commented:

"My new solo record will not be a rock record and I am not playing drums on it. [I am] singing and [playing] acoustic [guitar] mainly, [and] using another drummer [for the recording sessions]."

Sorum has revealed that the material to be featured on this new album is "a cross between The Doors, Pink Floyd, Wilco, David Gray, Peter Murphy and Portishead." Sounds thrilling.

Songtitles set to appear on the album are 'The Sea', 'What Ziggy Says', 'Blue Josephine', 'Gone', 'Lady Of The Stone', 'Killers N' Lovers', 'Ode To Nick Drake' and 'Land Of The Pure', the latter of which is "about children of Pakistan," says Sorum.

Sorum's new CD will be the follow-up to 2004's 'Hollywood Zen', his previous solo effort which featured his GN'R/VR bandmates Slash and Duff alongside Giuffria legends Chuck Wright and Lanny Cordola, the latter co-producing with the veteran sticksman.

Pasadena Star-News: School of Rock lives in Pasadena

[nggallery id=1]

The former Guns N' Roses drummer - he's now with Velvet Revolver - was dropping by to unveil a new drum set for the school, and to jam with about 50 eager students.

Inside the auditorium, the atmosphere buzzed with a low-level excitement, rose to a frenetic whisper, then exploded into riotous screams as Sorem entered.

Little Kids Rock, a national nonprofit program aimed at filling gaps in public schools where music and arts funding has been obliterated in the economic crunch, brings celebrities like Sorem to schools to encourage the next generation of artists.

"We're one of the leading organizations for free instruments and music programs," said program coordinator Miranda Altman. "What we do is we get kids improvising, writing songs, performing popular music. These visits are a way to get kids excited about it."

In Pasadena alone, Little Kids Rock serves around 900 students.
