Drugs N’ Roses
Matt Sorum, former Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver drummer, recently unveiled a shocking revelation about his past on the 2 Hours with Matt Pinfield podcast.
Sorum confessed to being a former drug smuggler way before he became a famous rock star. He revealed that he used to strap pounds of cocaine powder around his waste and take it across borders.
The famous rock drummer recalls of his drug-smuggling past,
“Before I was in a rock band, I was a drug smuggler. I used to smuggle cocaine across borders. I’d fly on airplanes with two kilos strapped around my waist”
“Most of my deliveries were in Hawaii, because I had a big connection there. I thought about the title ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Smuggler.’ Imagine the movie ‘Blow’, and then think about coming up in rock ‘n’ roll, before I got into bands that I was in. My way to pay my way was smuggling, and that’s what I did. A lot of the book, there’s probably going to be at least a chapter or two on my drug-dealing days.”
The book he is talking about is his autobiography that he is currently writing. It’s been a work in progress, and Sorum has claimed to have written an estimated “thousand pages” so far. He calls it “the juiciest of the juiciest of the GN’R books.”
