Matt Sorum: 'From Today Forward, I Will Not Be Commenting On Guns N' Roses'
According to, ex-Guns N' Roses drummer Matt Sorum says that he feels "truly blessed beyond [his] wildest dreams" to have been inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame alongside his former GN'R bandmates. After being inducted by Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong on Saturday, April 14 night in Cleveland, Ohio, Slash, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler and Sorum gave short speeches. They then proceeded to perform three "Appetite For Destruction" songs with Alter Bridge's Myles Kennedy handling lead vocals. He sang "Mr. Brownstone", "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "Paradise City", with "Use Your Illusion"-era member Sorum sitting behind the drum kit on "Brownstone" and the man he replaced in GN'R, Adler, pounding the skins for the other two songs. In a series of tweets from yesterday and today, Sorum wrote, "From today forward, I will not be commenting on Guns N' Roses. Or making any remarks about the future. "Thank you to all the fans. "The legacy continues without my commentary. "Feel truly blessed today beyond my wildest dreams. "I was a kid that just loved rock and roll and never new I would see this. Honored and emotional to the core. "Eternally grateful to Steven Adler for sharing the stage with me. Proud of how far he has come to get to get to the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame. Congrats, my friend. Your music is a piece of rock and roll history. "Let's honor the music and its legacy. This is for how great it was to be in a band with a bunch of pirates!!!! AXL!!!!! AXL!!!!! AXL!!!! "I said I wouldn't comment to the press. I will do whatever I choose on my Twitter. Have already been offered 25 press things today and have turned them all down."
