Video Footage Of MATT SORUM In The Studio With CHERIE CURRIE Available

Video footage of Jimmy Z laying down the horn parts on the song "You Wreck Me" for the new album from ex-RUNAWAYS singer Cherie Currie on January 27, 2011 at Matt Sorum's (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES) studio in California can be viewed below.

As previously reported, VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan and SMASHING PUMPKINS mainman Billy Corgan are among the guests who appear on the CD. Tentatively due out later this year, the record was produced by Sorum, who told The Pulse Of Radio what it sounded like. "The most modern kind of take I could put on things would be QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE meets the YEAH YEAH YEAHS meets, like, the RUNAWAYS," he said. "And then we've got a little bit of depth, we're doing a couple of ballads. It's a great-sounding rock 'n' roll record. It's coming out great."

Sorum said he's also lined up guest appearances on the disc from Juliette Lewis and Courtney Love.

Sorum played drums for Currie when she opened for her former RUNAWAYS bandmate, Joan Jett, last August in Costa Mesa, California.

Currie has largely stayed out of the spotlight since she was a member in the late '70s all-girl teen rock band, which also featured guitarist Lita Ford in addition to Currie and Jett.

A movie about the RUNAWAYS' brief history, starring Dakota Fanning as Currie and Kristin Stewart as Jett, came out last year.
