“Drug smuggling, shoot-outs, and never-ending decadent parties: Matt Sorum’s ‘Double Talkin’ Jive’ could almost be described as the autobiographical equivalent of the film ‘Blow’. But rather than becoming a premier drug smugglers, Matt Sorum becomes a world-famous drummer in GUNS N’ ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER, and THE CULT. Sorum drops out of high school to become a drummer, but turns to selling pot to support himself, and later smuggling large quantities of drugs. When Sorum is given the chance to play in THE CULT, he is finally able to make a living as a drummer. The very next year Slash and Duff McKagan recruit Matt to join GUNS N’ ROSES, and with that, Matt’s life is transformed. When Axl Rose starts turning up at the recording studio more and more sporadically, sometimes not at all, Matt recounts in keen detail how he and the band stagger toward their downfall. Matt and his GUNS N’ ROSES bandmates Slash and Duff form VELVET REVOLVER with Dave Kushner and Scott Weiland. When Weiland suddenly leaves the band, Matt steps in as drummer for MOTÖRHEAD during their U.S. tour, and then starts his own all-star band, KINGS OF CHAOS. During his time as a professional drummer, Matt battles alcohol and coke addictions, but meeting his girlfriend, Ace Harper, helps him manage to go clean. Matt Sorum’s autobiography, written with writer duo Leif Eriksson and Martin Svensson, avoids all the usual rock biography clichés.”
