Glenn Hughes (BLACK COUNTRY COMMUNION, DEEP PURPLE, BLACK SABBATH) will perform a song with a string quartet at the wedding of former GUNS N' ROSES and current VELVET REVOLVER drummer Matt Sorum later this month.
Sorum will marry his longtime girlfriend Adriane "Ace" Harper on October 12 in Palm Springs, California.
Sorum was born Matthew William Sorum (Norwegian spelling Srum),on November 19, 1960, in the present-day city of Mission Viejo, California. His parents were of English and Norwegian descent.
Matt and Ace collaborated on DIAMOND BABY, an electro-rock group whose debut single, "The Last Rockstar", arrived in August 2011. The accompanying music video featured guest appearances by "Glee" star Jane Lynch, iconic actress Juliette Lewis, Verne Troyer, and MOTÖRHEAD's Lemmy Kilmister.
Sorum helped raise more than $275,000 at his Peace Through Music benefit gala, which took place September 15 at the Loews Hollywood Hotel in Los Angeles. He partnered with philanthropist and South Asian rock star Shehzad Roy to raise funds for both the improvement of public education and for the arts in underprivileged schools around the world.
