Matt - yeah sure he's a 'better' player - but his drum sound isn't for soul...and his drums lines always struck me as average - he didn't try anything orginal (IMO!!). but hey...

i guess it don't really matter - sorum is good. but i missed simple steve.
Agreed. I love Sorum's work with Velvet Revolver and the Cult but Steven's the drummer for G n R, in my opinion. There was a short time (from 1988-1991) when G n R were one of the coolest live bands going. Check out their 1988 gig at the Ritz clips on YouTube. Nobody today has that rawness and gleeful rebellion like they did then.
