The Rock N Roll Hall of Fame inductee & Grammy Award winning Sorum opens up with forthright honesty, sharing anecdotes from his time touring the globe, battling drug and alcohol addiction, as well as working with Axl Rose, one of the greatest frontmen in rock, Slash and the rest of the GN'R team.

Double Talkin Jive goes beyond the clichs of sex, drugs, and rock n roll, telling the very human story of what it takes to make it in music, and the toll stardom exacts from those who achieve success.

Recensioner i media

"Matt is a true journeyman drummer who's got the chops and the showmanship to have a great career with all the ups, downs, and sideways that you would expect from a cat like him, though with his share of surprises he really needed to get his story told. Double Talkin' Jive is his version of what it's like to have 'the best seat in the house' with some of the wildest, hardest rockin' bands to come down the pike." Joe Perry, Aerosmith Devotees of the rock groups in which Sorum participated will take to this like catnip. Library Journal "Double Talkin Jive is a matter-of-fact, well-written account of one mans rise and lots of his falling through stardom and excess. And most importantly, his survival." Vintage Rock
