Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum hinted at being open to reuniting with the band in the future in a new tweet.
A fan tweeted Matt Sorum, “Everyone would love to see you back in GNR. The tour would be epic! @gunsnroses
Sorum responded, “You just never know what life has to offer do you?”
Sorum discussed smuggling drugs in an interview with Matt Pinfield a couple of months ago.
“I used to smuggle cocaine across borders,” Sorum revealed. “I’d fly on airplanes with two kilos strapped around my waist. Most of my deliveries were [to] Hawaii, because I had a big connection there, but I would smuggle.” He says his dark past will feature into “at least a chapter or two” of the book, which he considered titling Rock N’ Roll Drug Smuggler. “Imagine the movie Blow, and then think about coming up in rock & roll, before I got in the bands that I was in,” he explained. “My way to pay my way was smuggling, and that’s what I did.”
“The last time I smuggled two kilos to Hawaii,” he recalls, “I remember thinking I was being followed, and it wasn’t because I was paranoid on cocaine; I really felt that I was being followed. So, I told the guy that I flew this stuff for — I was the mule; and I got, like, a couple grand every time I went) — ‘I can’t do this. I’m being followed.’ He’s like, ‘Oh, man, you’re just high.’ I’m like, ‘No, man. I’m being followed. I’m not doing it. I’m going back to L.A.’ I was living in Long Beach … the guy that took my place [as smuggler] got arrested: twenty years in a federal penitentiary [for] international drug smuggling. That would have been me.”
