Watch SEBASTIAN BACH And MATT SORUM Perform GUNS N’ ROSES And SKID ROW Classics At 2024 ‘Day On The Ridge’


All-star rock band KINGS OF CHAOS — with special guests — headlined the Day On The Ridge festival on Sunday, May 26 in Gilroy, California.

KINGS OF CHAOS, the brainchild of GUNS N’ ROSES and VELVET REVOLVER drummer Matt Sorum, is an international all-star band with a revolving lineup of top rock-and-roll talent. The lineup for Day On The Ridge included guest vocalists Robin Zander (CHEAP TRICK) and Sebastian Bach (SKID ROW) alongside Lita Ford (THE RUNAWAYS),Gilby Clarke (GUNS N’ ROSES),Orianthi (ALICE COOPER, MICHAEL JACKSON),James LoMenzo (MEGADETH) and Brent Woods (TAYLOR HAWKINS & THE COATTAIL RIDERS, VINCE NEIL).

KINGS OF CHAOS had recorded just one song prior to the release of 2022’s “Judgement Day” single: a cover of DEEP PURPLE‘s “Never Before” for the 2012 tribute album “Re-Machined: A Tribute To Deep Purple’s ‘Machine Head'”.

During an appearance on the “2 Hours With Matt Pinfield” podcast, Sorum talked about the project’s formation. He said: “The music business is more difficult to navigate than ever, especially for a guy that’s been around a while,” he said. “I’ve had an illustrious career, but it’s always been, like, super-high, super-low, like riding the wildest roller coaster ever known to man. [Laughs] Emotionally, it’s been challenging. When VELVET REVOLVER broke up, for me, it was like, ‘Oh my god, I can’t believe I pulled off another band.’ So it kind of knocked the wind out of me, and I didn’t really want to jump back into doing another band or project right away.

“When I started doing KINGS OF CHAOS, it became strictly about fun,” he continued. “I decided, ‘I’m going to pull a bucket list, [and] I’m going to call guys that I never had the balls to call, and have no fear. There’s one or two answers that you can get — yes or no. And you’ve got to be able to accept no. Don’t take it personal. I called Keith Richards. I called Jimmy Page. I called [Robert] Plant. I didn’t care. I was just, like, finding them and calling them. And some of them said yes — not Robert Plant, dammit [laughs] — but Steven Tyler, Robin Zander, Billy Gibbons, Joe Elliott, Slash, the DeLeo brothers. I go and play with my friends, and it’s a blast.”

Sorum, who replaced Steven Adler in GUNS N’ ROSES, recorded the highly successful albums “Use Your Illusion I” and “Use Your Illusion II” (both 1991) and “The Spaghetti Incident” (1994). He also supported the group on the “Use Your Illusion” tour and can be heard on GUNS N’ ROSES“Live Era: ’87-’93” (1999) and “Greatest Hits” (2004).

Sorum was among the GUNS N’ ROSES members who were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in April 2012. He, Adler, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan attended the ceremony, while singer Axl Rose and founding guitarist Izzy Stradlin stayed home.

The 63-year-old musician, who has also played with THE CULT, VELVET REVOLVER and HOLLYWOOD VAMPIRES, is not involved with GN’R’s hugely successful reunion tour, which features Rose, Slash and McKagan alongside drummer Frank Ferrer, keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus and second keyboardist Melissa Reese.

Sorum‘s autobiography, “Double Talkin’ Jive: True Rock ‘N’ Roll Stories From The Drummer Of Guns N’ Roses, The Cult, And Velvet Revolver”, arrived in May 2022 via Rare Bird Books.
