Former GUNS N' ROSES drummer Matt Sorum is releasing his debut solo album on Halloween (31OCT03) - but only 300 copies will be available.

The veteran percussionist's LP, HOLLYWOOD ZEN - which will only be sold online at Matt's website - features a cameo from axe hero Slash on track THE BLAME GAME.

Matt, who now jams with SLASH's supergroup Velvet Revolver, says, "This is a very personal reflection of my life in rock and roll over the past two decades.

"It chronicles my own experiences with touring, addictions, relationships and my hometown Los Angeles. This record was a very liberating, cathartic experience."
