Matt Sorum


Whether it’s the epic percussive backdrop behind Guns N’ Roses’ “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” or the propulsive punked-out beat fueling Velvet Revolver’s “Dirty Little Thing,” Sorum’s playing remains unique, undeniable and unforgettable.

He's the US Ambassador for Animals Asia, Board Member of Dolphin Project, Ambassador for the Olive Ridley Project, and Co-Founder of Adopt the Arts, to keep music alive in schools.
