Matt Sorum

Biography

Matt Sorum was born in Long Beach, California sometime in the 1960's, to Joanne and David Sorum of English and Norwegian descent. Having been steeped in Viking lore from his father (David) and classical music and opera from his music-teacher mother (Joanne), Matt's path led him to the drums after seeing Ringo Starr of THE BEATLES on the Ed Sullivan Show. Matt's two older brothers (Mark and Mike) also turned him onto rockers like Jimi Hendrix, Cream and The Doors.
