    Default Matt Sorum's Diamond Baby



    Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver drummer Matt Sorum has a new band – and it's gotten off to a star-studded start. The band's first video, "The Last Rockstar," features Glee's Jane Lynch, actress Juliette Lewis, Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister and actor Verne Troyer.



    "I called Verne Troyer and Lemmy and Juliette Lewis and Jane Lynch is my next-door neighbor, so I asked her to do it," Sorum says. "She’s so busy, she’s such a huge actress now, but then she said she’d love to do it because she’s never done a rock video or a music video. And when I told her she was going to play my butler, she was cool."

    Diamond Baby has recorded a full album, which Sorum calls electro-rock. Sorum says the rest of the album is as visual and elaborate as "The Last Rockstar" and the band plans to use that theatricality in a variety of mediums. "We want to possibly do some graphic novel work and a digital game and all sorts of things we can do with an interesting concept. Visually we want to be very exciting, entertaining, over the top," he says.

    Sorum has changed his name in Diamond Baby to Baron Von Storm. "My former name and my former musical background I probably couldn’t do as much. I wanted to kind of dabble in a different music area," he says. "So the rock side of me is the other name – I really felt like more of a Ziggy Stardust kind of character with this."

    There is currently no release date for the album, but the band is planning some things for fall, including possible tour dates.

    He was a drummer (so-called) and there are no actual drums in the song, only a midi track. So, I suppose that if anything positive is to be taken from this production it is that Matt Sorum isn't actually playing drums, although he pretends to in the video.
    Sounds like a Brittney Spears song with a better singer is all.
