An excerpt from the discussion follows.

Navarro: Did Perry Farrell [ex-JANE'S ADDICTION] come up as an option [for the new VELVET REVOLVER singer]?

Sorum: Someone mentioned it to me. You go on Blabbermouth

Navarro: Yeah, yeah, yeah Don't read those comments, by the way.

Sorum: The people there on Blabbermouth What is wrong with them?

Navarro: Dude, welcome to my life, by the way.

Sorum: Do you get on there and read that?

Navarro: No, not anymore.

Sorum: My old lady, she makes me shut that stuff off. Some mean, mean, weird people are on there.

Navarro: Yeah, it's horrible.

Sorum: What are they doing out there?

Navarro: Nothing. I'll tell you what they're not doing, Matt. They're not making records and selling millions of them and affecting the lives [gets cut off by Matt]

Sorum: [Raising his voice] Yeah, talk about that on Blabbermouth!

Navarro: affecting the lives of millions of people like you. So don't listen to them because they're NOT doing that, I guarantee you.

Sorum: Yeah. When me and Weiland got into that pissing match a little bit

Navarro: Were there sides? Did people take sides?

Sorum: Oooo Oh, God

Navarro: Were people against you?

Sorum: Oh, man

Navarro: Really?

Sorum: I got on there one night and started scrolling down

Navarro: Oh, don't scroll down. [Matt bursts out laughing.] Read the story and call it a day. Trust me.

Sorum: And it sort of like those bad reality shows, it sucked me in.

Navarro: No scrolling, please. [Laughs]

Sorum: I've gotta say it to you, people, man You didn't affect me at all. Screw you. [Laughs] I say, go get a life.
