Matt Sorum To Write a Book - Comes Out Next Year

Recommended Posts

Hopefully it will be really bitchy. Now that Slosh and Rose are chums and everybody is politically correct now and neutral I miss the cattiness.

I reckon he'll be the most honest out of all the books. 

That was my immediate thought as soon as I saw the thread title.  Lets hope his book lives up to our expectations.

Yeah this will be interesting, also in terms of how the reunion came to be, and why some people (including Matt) aren't a part in it, and if he was even asked or not. Also curious how his relation with Slash and Duff REALLY is nowadays.

I'll certainly read it, but is there really anything we don't already know about the behind the scenes mess that the UYI era was?

I'd personally like to know more of sorums thoughts regarding the breakup 93. 

Ill definitely buy the book. I'm not interested in the chapters he will devote to the cult, but anything guns I'd be well interested in. And also I'd like to know if he was even approached for NITL and what he was offered ect etc. I think it would be a fascinating read. We get so little comment from anyone these days that when someone does, we lap it up.

It's from a different perspective at least, from a guy who was coming in and meeting them all, without any prior relationship that might cloud their opinion. He's also a bit of a mouth who was left out of the reunion so he might not hold back on anything.

I personally think if  he wasn't asked to be apart of the nitl tour and yet gilby was, tells me axl has no inclination of involving him in any future related guns work. Because of this i hope he doesnt hold back in his book.

just curious...if Gilby was asked, why do we still have Fortus!?

I mean I would take Gilby over Fortus any day.  Can't imagine Gilby was more expensive than Fortus!? what is the deal?

Gilby is a sentimental favorite. He isn’t better than Fortus in playing those parts.

that is your subjective opinion. I never said he was, but now you mention it, he definately is better fit than Fortus.

I mean...who isn't?

The rumour was that Gilby turned it down!

 

No rumor i remember gilby being asked that question in an interview and he turned the offer down  to focus on his own music.

Definitely don't agree with this.. I am sure it is accurate to some degree and for some people but I know that I prefer Gilby playing those parts every day of the week.  Also preferred  is stage presence and his backup vocals were also a really good fit.

He didn't elaborate on the offer he turned down though or did he? I remember getting the impression that maybe he just got offered to fly out to a show or two for a guest spot or something and the logistics\timing didn't work out.  No way Gilby turned down the spot next to Slash for his solo shit.

Or the money was crap and he turned it down a la Izzy. That's the impression I got. Ditto with Sorum who also claims he was approached by the GnR camp (it's hard to believe Sorum was asked to participate though). Either way, there's no way those guys are missing the chance to play in the biggest reunion tour of the decade (logistics or otherwise) - unless the fee offered by GnR was abysmal. Adler seems to confirm that he was paid a pittance ( it wasn't clear whether travel expenses were even covered).

I prefer him, too. But, it’s mostky for sentiment. Fortus has been with Axl for years, it would be shitty to abandon him for anybody other than Izzy.

It was definitely for a gig or two. As you said, Gilby ain’t turning down GNR and all the cool shit that comes with such as a ducking private plane and 1st class lodging.

I've always wondering why duff's wife and gilby's one stopped following each other on instagram... they were close friends, often together.. hearts, kisses, hugs...

 

something happened just some days before the reunion announcement..

Making sure i'm reading this one correctly.

Are you guys saying that apparently Gilby was offered the spot *instead* of Fortus? For me there is absolutely no chance this is true. Axl is too loyal to have ditched Richard to bring in Gilby.

In 2016, Slash, Alx Rose, and Duff McKagan re-united for the Guns N’ Roses “Not in This Lifetime” Tour. According to Gilby Clarke he was invited to play as a guest, but unfortunately he couldn’t make it due to other commitments.

“I think it’s great that Slash and Axl are back together. I think together they can write some great music and finish what they started in putting Guns N’ Roses up there with the best bands ever,” Gilby Clarke replied.

I was asked to come play as a guest, but it didn’t work out,” Gilby Clarke added.

Ah ok thank you for clearing up.

Would be really interesting to hear at some point what sort of terms (doesn't have to have the financial terms explicitly explained - more about number of appearances, songs per night etc) Gilby/Adler/Izzy/Sorum were offered to join the tour.
