(The Cult, GNR,s Velvet Revolver
.....). El disco saldra en marzo de 2014 y x lo q ha dicho Matt, tiene influecias de The Beatles, David Bowie, Genesis, Tom Petty
...... asi q los q esperen un disco de hard rock al uso quedaran bastante decepcionados. No se q esperar del disco, pero esas influencias q comenta me gustan y sera interesante escuchar la voz de Matt Sorum
. Quizas nos sorprenda
Esta es la portada del disco
Speaking to The Street, Sorum
stated about his inspiration for the "Stratosphere
" CD: "I'm known as a rock guy, but I've always loved so many diverse artists. I was a huge Joni Mitchell
fan; I remember listening to a lot of her records back to back. Neil Young, Tom Petty, THE BEATLES
, of course, and I was a huge Bowie
fan. I was also into progressive stuff, like early GENESIS, Peter Gabriel
era. You can hear that influence on the new album; there are a couple of songs that have some interesting time changes.
"I've always dabbled on the acoustic guitar, and I wrote a couple songs for VELVET REVOLVER
. In GUNS N' ROSES, Axl
] and Slash
looked to me for arrangements. I wasn't the predominant songwriter, but I've always been involved in the process.
"When I put 'Stratosphere
' together, I actually had a lot of it on cassette. I'd been writing the songs over the years, and I wanted to do an album that was just coming from me, regardless of anyone's expectations."
Asked if MATT SORUM'S FIERCE JOY
will go out on tour, Sorum
said: "We're going to tour, but it isn't going to be a typical rock show. If I'm going to front a band, I can't see myself, at my age, jumping up and playing rock and roll the way Dave Grohl
pulls it off, running around the stage with an electric guitar. But would that feel right for me? How can I make this feel natural, a natural progression, growing into the man that I finally feel that I am, and saying what I want to say now?"
