Matt Sorum talks Guns N’ Roses reunion

More Guns N’ Roses reunion talk has surfaced courtesy of drummer Matt Sorum.

The band’s status for the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame will be known within a few weeks, when the 2012 inductees are announced.

The nomination, in the group’s first year of eligibility, has raised all kinds of talk about what could happen if GNR are to be inducted, including a full-scale reunion of the original lineup.

"You never know,” Sorum tells Sydney’s Triple M radio. “Usually the way it works with Guns N' Roses is that it's gotta be about Slash and Axl first, which has been a little bit of a problem. Duff played with Axl and actually Duff (and his band Loaded) was gonna go out on tour with Axl.”

As for Matt, the drummer says, "I haven't seen Axl for about six years."

Sorum is in Australia for Tuesday’s Hard Rock Cafe opening in Darling Harbour. Matt will be jamming with a bunch of rock legends including Doc Neeson, AC/DC's Mark Evans, and Angry Anderson, who the Gunners have had a long relationship with.

"[Rose Tattoo] were one of the first rock bands that were seen with a lot of tattoos and the look of the band was a big inspiration on GN'R," said Matt.
