The Day in Rock Digest for 12/23/10: BraveWords asked Velvet Revolver Drummer Matt Sorum "Are you guaranteeing new Velvet Revolver in 2011? Be that a tour, album or both?" He responded"I would like to say 'yes' as a guarantee and the only reason I'm saying that is because if it doesn't happen by 2011 were definitely going to pack it up. But it will happen because that's our goal. We've known each other over twenty years and it's like a gentlemen's agreement. It's like 'ok, let's do this'." Check out the lengthy interview here.
