MATT SORUM, Former GUNS N’ ROSES Drummer Performs “Patience”
The post on his Instagram opens up with the drummer saying
: “Here I am again with my guitar. I’m out in the backyard here in the desert. You see my palm trees. It’s getting a little chilly, so I put on this wooly hat in tribute to Izzy Stradlin, one of the writers of this next song. I was very fortunate to play with my old bandmates on this song. Obviously, I was on the drums. I’m gonna play it for you tonight on the guitar and sing it. I hope you enjoy my version. This one’s called ‘Patience‘.”
Sadly for GUNS N’ ROSES fans, Chicago Review Press, the drummer’s publisher has pushed back the release date of his autobiography titled “Double Talkin’ Jive: True Rock ‘N’ Roll Stories From The Drummer Of Guns N’ Roses, The Cult, And Velvet Revolver”, to July 7 from the previously announced April 7.

JOSH KLINGHOFFER Reveals How He Joined The Band
“Gnarls Barkley, maybe through a label, they start opening for the Chili Peppers in the Stadium Arcadium period. This is great for me because I’m friends with them, so I’m in there. How did that happen? There was a cancelation due to the snow storm, so there was a makeup show on one of the legs, and Gnarls decided at the last minute not to go down to Mexico.
But because I’m friends with the Chili Peppers, I’m like, ‘You guys are crazy, Mexico City is the greatest place to play. Expletive you guys, I’m going to go with them.’ So I go, and I hadn’t seen John in awhile, because I had been on tour, so we hung out, it was fun.”
SuperHeroSong posted on the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS subreddit “In the podcast Josh states that he dropped out of High School at age 15 around 1995 and practically just stayed in his room playing guitar all the time. He started playing with Bob Forrest when he was 17 in 1997 and the Bicycle Thief record was released in 1999. The guitar playing in that record is very sophisticated, it amazes me how talented Josh became at such a young age. It’s crazy how he and Bob met at just the right time and how that eventually led to Josh joining RHCP. A lot of similarities between John and Josh.”
I think it’s crazy they let Josh go and didn’t keep him. What are your guys thoughts.
