Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum has stated that he will not appear on bandmate Slash’s upcoming solo album: "He hasn’t asked me. You know, he’s got Jason Bonham playing on it, and Travis Barker, and I think he wants to, kind of, separate himself and do his own thing and that’s cool."
On another note, it’s strange to think of Travis Barker recording with Slash. Both are undeniably talented and respected musicians, but they seem like an odd pair. Then again, Barker did perform Jane’s Addiction’s “Mountain Song” with Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro and Flea last year; Barker’s branching out these days.
