Former Guns N' Roses drummer Matt Sorum stated that he's very much up for returning to the GN'R fold, noting that life is simply "too short."
Matt was initially asked by Radio.com to comment about bassist Duff McKagan's latest brief return to the band.
"Well, Duff's like a really consummate gentleman, he's always been the mediator," he replied. "I think he got caught in the middle of all the other stuff. So for him to mend fences [with Axl Rose], it was cool. It's time. Rather than sitting around and saying 'What if?' He was really cool about it, he sent us all emails. It was nice, it felt cool, it felt right."
Prompted to comment on whether he'd rejoin Guns, Sorum noted, "Yeah, sure, I got no problems with any of that, you know? Life's too short, it's getting shorter too."
During the rest of the chat, the drummer also touched on the Rock Hall matter, saying he'd prefer if GN'R were inducted a bit later than 2012.
"There are a lot of other bands I want to put in there," he said. "Taj Mahal, Deep Purple, Cheap Trick... I mean there's just a ton of bands that haven't made the cut. I wish they waited a few more years with us. I'm glad I was invited to the party. It was really great between me and Steven [Adler], the original drummer, I think we had a really great rapport and he was very gracious to me."
