(Classic Rock) Matt Sorum has recalled the surprise, pride and anger that went with being a member of Guns N' Roses in the 1990s. He replaced Steven Adler behind the drumkit in time to record double-album Use Your Illusion and toured the world with Axl Rose and co while they were commonly described as "the most dangerous band in the world."

Sorum took some heat for making comments about the Foo Fighters that were taken to be negative. But he says what he meant was: "I wish I could be in a band like Metallica or the Foo Fighters - a band that runs that smoothly. I didn't say they're not dangerous.

"People ask me what's different about rock'n'roll and I say, 'It's not as dangerous as it was.' I'm not saying that's a good thing. I was in the most dangerous rock'n'roll band in the world at the time. That's been an amazing journey, but I can't handle living my life like that any more."

Now that Guns N' Roses are touring with Slash and bassist Duff McKagan back in the band, Sorum reflects: "Those were the greatest times in rock'n'roll. What's going on now is great for them, but I was there when it was great too - probably the greatest.

"They're out there doing that, going on stage on time every night. Times have changed, haven't they?" Read more here.
