Guns N’ Roses Reunion Rumors: Matt Sorum Has No Comment on Possible Involvement
Matt Sorum was mum on his role – if any - in a Guns N' Roses reunion as he and his wife arrived at LAX. In fact, he refused to address the rumors at all.
"Huh?" Sorum said to a reporter in the above video, though it seems clear that he heard the question. Sorum – who replaced founding drummer Steven Adler in 1990 – initially waved off the inquiry, then pulled his hat down over his eyes, and then simply turned his back to the camera and walked off.
Guns N' Roses confirmed on Tuesday that Slash and Duff McKagan will reunite with Axl Rose in April at Coachella, marking their first on-stage collaboration since 1993. Still unclear is who else will join them. Several things seemed to point to a reformulated lineup that includes Frank Ferrer, Richard Fortus, Chris Pitman and Dizzy Reed, but that remains unconfirmed.
Coachella is scheduled for the weekends of April 15-17 and April 22-24 in Indio, Calif. Guns N' Roses will play on the 16th and 23rd. Rumors of a subsequent stadium tour across North America featuring as many as 25 stops have also circulated, but an official announcement has yet to be made.
Sorum, also a former member of Velvet Revolver with Slash and McKagan, spoke earlier tonight (Jan. 9) at an emotional farewell service for the late Lemmy Kilmister. He'd once filled in on drums during a Motorhead tour, after playing drums on Guns N' Roses' Use Your Illusion albums, The Spaghetti Incident and their update of the Rolling Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil." He split in 1997.
