KISS, Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and Matt Sorum (ex-Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver) are part of a new video for 'Adopt the Arts,' with the goal to save and continue arts programs in California schools.
Jane Lynch, Macaroni, Johnathon Schaech, Tony Okungbowa, Shay Carl, Epic Lloyd, Hiimrawn, Davin Dell'osa, Wayne Hoffman, and the awesome artwork of Mary Doodles are also featured in this comedic approach and raising awareness to keep arts in our school. The video may be funny, but the arts disappearing from our schools most definitely isn't.
It is the mission of Adopt the Arts Foundation to bring together well-known artists, public figures, and the general public to save the arts in America’s public schools. Adopt the Arts Foundation is dedicated to improving the academic performance of every child through the gift of making art and music to our public school students.

Drummer Matt Sorum (The Cult, Guns N' Roses, Velvet Revolver) is going by the name of Baron Von Storm in his new band Diamond Baby. Diamond Baby have released a music video for the song "The Last Rockstar", which features cameo appearances by Jane Lynch, Juliette Lewis, Verne Troyer, and Motorhead's Lemmy Kilmister. Along with Sorum (Baron Von Storm), Diamond Baby features vocalist Ace Of Diamonds, guitarist Duke Oz, bassist Mr. Fitz and keyboardist Lisa The Lover.
"I called Verne Troyer and Lemmy (Kilmister of Motorhead) 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."
Why Baron Von Storm? Sorum says, "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." Check out the new video below and listen to seven new tracks from the upcoming album here.
Music and art collide with the unveiling of a highly limited collection of visual artwork by legendary drummer Matt Sorum. All the pieces were done with still photography and light sticks. Working in collaboration with creativity house SceneFour, Matt Sorum's fine art debut is an unprecedented, comprehensive study of rhythm light and 100 rhythmic performances captured on canvases. Each piece in the series is epic in size, and all are numbered and signed.

Sorum recently commented on his visual artwork: "I never considered myself an artist in that form until it was brought to my attention that it could be done. So I think there are similarities to painters. You know the sticks relate to brush strokes. The fact that we're able to capture that image and create art out of it and the similarities and achieve aspects that artists can achieve with a brush, I think makes solid sense to me. I think there's a similarity. Whatever motion each human has, in a different way, creates their vision. Great artists have a different feel from each other, nobody is similar, everyone has a different take on things and it comes through in the movement."
There are a total of five different visual pieces in the collection to choose from.
-Of the five pieces, there will a total of 130 total drafts to own, each numbered and signed by Sorum. Once those pieces are sold, no more drafts will be printed.
-All of the art pieces in the collection are large in size. The largest is 60" x 48" and the smallest piece is 30" x 20".
-Beginning this month, Sorum's collection will become available to galleries in the United States and Europe.
-Like all SceneFour art releases, you can purchase the piece in full, or you can own a piece through a payment plan (with no interest charged).
