"He was complicated, yes," Sorum said, in an interview that ranged from the specifics of Velvet Revolver's history to his admiration for his fellow artist.
"But the artistry was magnificent." "I don't know how I felt initially because I can't say it was a shock, but I definitely wasn't expecting it, because I felt Scott was gonna be here longer than this," Sorum said.
