MATT SORUM Completes Mixing New CHERIE CURRIE Album - Mar. 19, 2011
Matt Sorum's (VELVET REVOLVER, GUNS N' ROSES) has completed mixing the new new album from ex-RUNAWAYS singer Cherie Currie.
VELVET REVOLVER guitarist Slash, bassist Duff McKagan and SMASHING PUMPKINS mainman Billy Corgan are among the guests who appear on the CD. Tentatively due out later this year, the record was produced by Sorum, who told The Pulse Of Radio what it sounded like. "The most modern kind of take I could put on things would be QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE meets the YEAH YEAH YEAHS meets, like, the RUNAWAYS," he said. "And then we've got a little bit of depth, we're doing a couple of ballads. It's a great-sounding rock 'n' roll record. It's coming out great."
Sorum said he's also lined up guest appearances on the disc from Juliette Lewis and Courtney Love.
Sorum played drums for Currie when she opened for her former RUNAWAYS bandmate, Joan Jett, last August in Costa Mesa, California.
Currie has largely stayed out of the spotlight since she was a member in the late '70s all-girl teen rock band, which also featured guitarist Lita Ford in addition to Currie and Jett.
A movie about the RUNAWAYS' brief history, starring Dakota Fanning as Currie and Kristin Stewart as Jett, came out last year.
