Sorum has often given his time to animal rights causes. He has long been involved with the International Fund for Animal Welfare, and last month wrote a letter to support the government’s role in helping to restrict the international ivory trade. Similarly, Billy Joel has come out in favor of a proposed ban on the sale of ivory in the state of New York.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer is also a co-founder of Adopt the Arts, and has recently lent his talents to help raise money for Ringo Starr’s Peace and Love Fund. He and Starr are featured in a video (embedded below) with other great drummers like Chad Smith and session ace Jim Keltner – as well as Steven Tyler – as part of designer John Varvatos’ “Peace Rocks” campaign.
