Re: Matt Sorum
I still maintain that Matt is a class act, yes some of his album work isn't that dynamic but what about Chad Smith's work with RHCP's, Matt plays for the music the same as Chad does. Its about being a mature player.
Live, Matt is cool as well. Saw him with VR when they came to Manchester, UK in June, he is solid as solid can be and plays with emotion (I really dig his facial expressions).
He has changed over to Ludwig, stopped playing DW a while back I think.
