Gretsch Welcomes Matt Sorum

April 04, 2013

We’re proud to announce the addition of Matt Sorum to the Gretsch roster. Among other projects, Matt’s playing has been heard with The Cult, Guns N’ Roses, and Velvet Revolver. He is currently working on a solo project (singing and playing guitar), as well as getting ready for upcoming shows with his band, Kings of Chaos. Last year, Matt was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Guns N’ Roses. When asked why Gretsch, he replied: “I always loved the sound and I own a late 70’s kit in my studio. Best recording kit.” For more info on Matt, please go to
