Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum recently said that one of his jobs before hitting it big as a drummer was as a drug smuggler.
On February 22nd, Sorum was a guest on the 2 Hours With Matt Pinfield podcast and spoke openly about an autobiography he’s currently working on. Sorum said:
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.
Sorum also said that his book will be:
the juiciest of the juiciest of the G-N-R books, for sure, plus all the other crap I’ve done. I’m being really truthful about everything that happened. I’m not a jaded individual; I’m not a bitter guy. There’s a lot of bad [crap] that went down, but I just want to tell the story straightforward, and I don’t want to, like, hold back.
