VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES drummer Matt Sorum recently gave an exclusive interview on the set of the JVC Mobile Entertainment "Turn Me On 2" video shoot. Matt talks about the super-hot DARLING STILETTOS (a dance troupe co-produced by Sorum and his girlfriend, Ace Harper) and the state of rock and roll today. Watch the three-minute chat below.

Sorum has provided the beats for some of rocks most notoriously dysfunctional bands, first with GUNS N' ROSES and most recently VELVET REVOLVER. The 48-year-old California-native told The Pulse of Radio things may be different if he were ever given the chance to run things. "Being the drummer in a rock n' roll unit, you know you're not the guy that's making the decisions or you know, which you'd like to be, if you look at a lot of great bands that are out there there's a couple I can name that are run by drummers — METALLICA, run by Lars Ulrich and a band called U2, run by Larry Mullins. I would like to think, 'If you guys just let me run this band, things would go different,' but it's not the way it is."

Matt Sorum recently told The Pulse of Radio that, if the original GUNS N' ROSES band reunites, they should perform with both him and original drummer Steven Adler. "If it's me on drums or Steven or whatever, if it happened, it'd be great, you know. I would actually say to them, 'Hey, bring both of us back,' you know. Let me play the other stuff. We'll have two drum kits. I don't care. If 'Appetite' ('For Destruction', the band's debut) sounds better with Steven playing it, have both guys up there. They can afford it."
