Matt Sorum, Slash May Play With Donovan At Hall Of Fame
Matt Sorum has revealed that he and Slash may yet play live at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame – even though Guns N’ Roses won’t be performing.
Talking to VH1 Radio Network, the drummer says that he’s offered his services to Donovan who, like GN’R, will be inducted into the Hall Of Fame in Cleveland on April 14.
“I might play drums with Donovan. I offered my services to Donovan, because I played with him one time before, and Hurdy Gurdy Man was a song he recorded that John Bonham played drums on and Jimmy Page was the guitar player. I offered Donovan that me and Slash could play that maybe, but I haven’t heard back if he wants us to do it or not.”
Sorum also said he asked Slash if he’d call Axl and find out what the unpredictable singer is planning to do at the ceremony.
“Slash’s answer to me was that he spoke to Izzy [Stradlin], and Izzy wasn’t planning on coming. So I think that was like, if Izzy’s not going to come and it’s not all the original guys, then it doesn’t make sense.”
