              Cocaine smuggling, shoot-outs, murder and never-ending decadent parties. Matt Sorum's Double Talkin' Jive could almost be described as the autobiographical equivalent of the film Blow . But rather than becoming one of the United States' premier drug smugglers, Matt Sorum becomes ...a world famous drummer in bands such as Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver, and the Cult. Sorum dropped out of high school to become a drummer, but turned to selling pot to support himself, later transitioning to smuggling large quantities of cocaine. When Sorum is suddenly given the chance to play in the Cult, he is finally able to make a living as a drummer. He is asked to replace Steven Adler in Guns N' Roses the very next year. With that, Matt's life is transformed. He is involved in the creation of two of rock's most legendary albums: Use Your Illusion 1 and 2 . But, not long after that, Axl starts turning up at the recording studio more and more sporadically, sometimes not at all, and during the following world tour, serious problems emerge. Matt recounts in keen detail how he and the band stagger toward their downfall. Matt and his Guns N' Roses band mates Slash and Duff McKagan form Velvet Revolver with Dave Kushner, and their 2004 debut record, Contraband , tops the Billboard charts. When singer Scott Weiland suddenly leaves the band, Matt steps in as drummer for Motoerhead during their US tour, and then starts his own all-star band, Kings of Chaos. During his time as a professional drummer, Matt battles alcohol and coke addictions, but meeting his girlfriend, Ace Harper, helps him manage to go clean. The couple marry in Palm Springs in 2013 and, just two years later, Matt becomes the drummer in super group Hollywood Vampires. Matt Sorum's autobiography, written with writer duo Leif Eriksson and Martin Svensson, avoids all the usual rock biography cliches. There is no posing here-just a brutal honesty which involves daring to be reckless, even toward yourself.
