Matt Sorum's Autobiography

Recommended Posts

I too guess it's not gonna be that interesting , just a variation of storys already known. Matt surely doesn't want to burn bridges with Slash, Duff, etc.

Maybe we can finally learn more about Duff's punk roots, now that would be exciting!!

Waiting on it being delayed due to Sorum getting a Cease & Desist because of the name.

 

I'll maybe hold off for 6 months and get it for like £3 out of The Works.

I've never rwad any of the GN'R books. I doubt I'll start with Sorums but it'll be cool to read the highlights when users post them. 

Why haven't you read any?

You are missing out. I've gotten into the habit go going to a coffee shop and just read a hardcover book or my Kindle. It's a good way to escape for a bit.

Funny you say that about that cause this was what Gilby wrote....

gilbygtr

congrats Matt, i’m sure it’s fantastic. u are the only one who remembers accurately

that pretty much sounds like a diss.  Just not sure whome.  Matt?  Slash? Duff?   

There was least interaction between Gilby and Duff post GNR years.  On the other hand,  always thought Gilby was least druged during GNR years.  He seemed like light drugs type of guy.  Maybe that stoned look in Move to the city Tokyo video :lol:

Looking forward to reading it. Matt's a helluva douche. I don't trust him to tell the truth, at least not when it makes him look bad or not cool but it's probably going to be a fun read like Slash's book was.

The VR stuff is probably more interesting than GNR.  I don't think he was cut in to anything interesting GNR related. Maybe an expanded anecdote about the NR Pat Boone / Debby Boone fill.... if you're lucky a couple pages on the mid 90's recording era. 

Who knows, though! He gives off that douche vibe, but at the same time he's been humbled enough times and never broke big enough to go full guns deluded asshole... he might be more thoughtful than people think.

Honestly most interested in VR and how much he goes into basically everyone but Duff relapsing.

I'm interested in his take on VR break up. But I'm very much looking forward to his side of the story about everything that went on during the UYI Tour

he must be getting inquiries into the book from the weird camp 

Yeah. I dont think sorum should be light on his opinion because of any interference fromTB. Sorum was not asked to be part of the nitl lineup so in my view he doesnt owe it to TB totalk nice about axl.

Huge fan of GNR (obviously) and I love The Cult. I believe they are one and two on the list of the bands I've seen most over the years. I'm all in for Sorum's book.

We need to start making requests here for other GN'R member autobiographies. 

-Trapped in the Vault: The Paul Tobias Story is my starter. 

The only  person who would buy that except you is his mother

No he was never asked. When the coachella dates went public a fan asked  him via insta if he had been offered or was part of the lineup. He said  no as he was never asked.

The book comes out in April , I’m betting the new GNR album will be coming out at the same time . Sorum is smart and releasing this book at the same time as GNR release a new album would be a good business move as there will be a ton of promotion and press going on surrounding GNR at the time . You heard it hear first lol

Haha- my thoughts EXACTLY! 

Interested to read it, but the first thing I thought when I saw it was "£27? That's got The Works in a couple of months all over it!"

If the publishers of this book are aware of a GNR release schedule, I'd be amazed!
