MATT SORUM Hangs Out With AXL ROSE In New York City

VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES drummer Matt Sorum has posted the following message on his official blog:

"In [New York City] right now. Played here with CAMP FREDDY on Tuesday in Times Square. It was unbelievable. We were hanging off the side of a building. Scott Weiland [VELVET REVOLVER, ex-STONE TEMPLE PILOTS] sang two and Donovan [Leitch] sang one song. Then after we finished that we went inside and played a set at The Hard Rock Cafe. Great night with a lot of cool guests.

"The rest of the [CAMP FREDDY] band and party went back to L.A. yesterday but I decided to hang a bit. Have been to some great clubs and parties.

"Went to a Chrome Hearts party the other night. They make jewelry. And leather. I met Cher and Usher. That was a trip to meet Cher. She was cool. Also saw old friend Lenny Kravitz there. Then last night I went to a club called 6 and 8s. While getting out of the cab I run into Sean Lennon who was leaving and when inside there was Axl Rose. Oh my God. I hadn't seen him in at least six years. I walked over and said hello. We shook hands. And it was pleasant. Later that evening I ended up in a loft somewhere in the East Village where Axl was again. We spoke for quite some time. And it was nice to clear some things up. I told him how great of a frontman he was while I was in the band and no hard feelings from me at all. It was an all-around good vibe, I think.

"After the party ended. Axl gave me a ride back to my hotel in his suburban.

"I'm headed out now to meet friend Gina Gershon. She knows [New York] so she can show me around."
