Matt Sorum Bio/Wiki 2018

His parent were a middle class working couple who had two kids already before Matt. Growing up at their residence in California, the kids went through an extremely emotional period following the passing of the father in a youthful age. Together with the growth of The Beatles in and about the 60s, Ringo Starr was Matt’s idol and he loved to see Ringo play the drums. So he got his inspiration and began to play drums in school. With much interest and commitment, Matt could play in not really long time and was likewise selected by his school to play in the Mission Viejo Marching Bands drum. Beginning to play as a rookie, he obtained his first place in 1975, where he was playing a sizable drum set and was wearing just his boxers. He even formed a musical band namedProphecyand began playing shows in little pubs and eateries in the large city of California. Not an extremely successful pupil of his class, he definitely was a success on the stage.

He was quite well-known for his long blond hairdo and his competitive way of play the drum, in a sense that excited the crowd at the same time. A good-looking young man, he’s got tats on both his arms as well as in areas of his body. A mixed race, he’s got green eyes and white hair and from his youthful days was never seen with an excessive amount of weight put on his body. Through when Rock and Roll had simply given directly into Rock music, he was connected with a number of successful groups and lived an extremely distinct life through the 80s; most of which was focused on drugs as well as girls. Therefore, it’s hard to maintain records of girls that he were dating or was in relationship with. There have been many images of him and his girlfriends, although not all of them remained eternally. He’d been married with wife Kai Sorum, who had been an English model from 1978 to 1985, but the wedding had not been a hit, unlike his tunes and therefore the couple got a divorce; and had no kids together. There have been rumors about having less kids for Matt, as well as conjectures of his being a homosexual have come forward, which will be extremely improbable to be.

Having played in more than 5 hit groups of his time; Matt has got a huge fan following from all over the world. With these hit rock groups, he’s made several records and sold out in multi million copies all over the world. Besides that, he’s toured extensively from North America to Asia and has performed live concerts in several memorable locations. With such recognition, he’s got huge fan following on his Twitter and Instagram accounts. You may also read his biography in Wikipedia or IMDb and pay attention to his tunes or see his interviews on YouTube.
