Guns N' Roses Drummer

Wanna Know the Best Drinking Game Ever?

2/8/2013 3:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Guns N' Roses partied pretty hard in their heyday, so it makes sense they'd know the craziest drinking games -- case in point, something called "Wear the Lamp Shade" as explained to us by former dummer Matt Sorum.

Sorum -- who banged the buckets in GNR for a better part of the 90s -- was walking his dogs in Studio City Wednesday when our photog got him talking about games the band played on the road ... and one in particular was quite simply ... enlightening?

It involves booze (obviously), a hotel room (of course), naked girls (how could it not) and ... (drum roll) ... a lamp shade -- we'll let the video explain the rest.

"Wear the Lamp Shade" ... GNR tested, Brick Tamland approved.

I think Axel hand picked this guy to replace the first drummer of course he is going to go along with Axel's insanity. That was the mistake right there. They should have ganged up on Axel instead and made him act civilized instead of kicking out the good natured drummer.

I am completely disgusted by what I found out about Axel and how he treated women, especially his ex-wife. He could be spending life in prison for what he did. He is a real maniac.

He just gets weirder and weirder with age. This guy was just along for the money and the ride. He was never that into the music. The band was never the same without Steven Adler.

I don't find their abuse of women amusing in the least.

There ultimate drinking game is how they named the band originally. Everyone got their favorite gun and would have to shoot the bud off the rose from 25 feet away. Whomever didn't shot. the bud off had to drink 1 scotch 1 bourbon and 1 beer. How didn't TMZ know this?

Does anyone actually spell check these articles? What exactly is a "dummer"?

I'm sure any 14 year old horny boy would agree with him. However, once one reaches adulthood if you want to get your drink on you just start to pound them. Game enough.

If this guy was the drummer in the '90s then he was not the drummer for Guns and Roses. What he isone of the many sidemen that Axl Rose has hired over the years. I doubt very much that he was even the sole drummer of the '90s.
Another bull**** story from a group that has gotten really lazy.

Matt hits hard but Steven Adler had that true to form GnR feel. Both great drummers.

Some people are pounders and some are drummers. Drummers are musicians and have a flair and feel for what is swinging. Pounders just bang hard and try to keep the tempo. They just give you a headache. I would rather someone be a little off tempo and have some kind of musical style than just be a loud sort of beat box.

The drummer adds to the tempo, but really all the musicians should be able to keep time in their heads as well. Then if the drummer gets off, the rest of the band can lead him back.

That is why it is called a band, you are supposed to band together when you play. You are not supposed to pick one person and say he messed up.

I think what Steven really did wrong was be nice to Axl's wife while he was terrorizing her. I think that made Axl jealous and that is the real reason why he couldn't stand to have this guy around any more.

From what I heard, they were all drunks and junkies. The song Mr. Brownstone is about doing heroin. So how do they call just one guy the major junkie?
