Former Guns N’ Roses Drummer Talks About A Possible Reunion
Posted By DSR on 09.19.07
Gino Alache of Rockumradio.com spoke with former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler prior to last night’s Adler’s Appetite’s concert in Lima, Peru. A couple of excerpts from the interview follow:
Discussing whether he ever played in South America with Guns N’ Roses:
"I never had a chance. I missed out on that. [Matt Sorum] was very lucky. He took over my life, practically. Everything I worked for, Slash and the guys just gave to him."
Talking about the amazing reaction Guns N’ Roses received when they first played in South America (with Matt Sorum):
"The crowd wasn’t excited about seeing him [Matt Sorum] — it was that they were excited about still seeing Slash and Duff and Izzy and Axl performing. He was just in the background. They were just missing something."
On his current relationship with his former Guns N’ Roses bandmates:
"It’s been wonderful because I’ve been talking to them a lot lately. They feel the same way I do — it’s just a matter of Axl wanting to, [being] ready to do it. But all four of us wanna do this — have a nice, good reunion and play for everybody. Finish what we started doing. That’s what we wanna do. And Slash and Izzy and Duff — even Axl, but I Axl wants to put his record out. I don’t know… I can’t say."
Speaking about the recent Guns N’ Roses near-reunion at the Key Club in West Hollywood, California:
"Yeah, it was great. Matt Sorum and that other guy, that singer, that Scott Weiland guy [of Velvet Revolver] — that’s why Slash didn’t come up and play, because they kept calling him and being all upset, like, ‘What are you doing here?’ Like little babies, little kids. I was like, ‘What the fuck? Just go have him play a couple of songs.’ They were like, ‘Oh, we don’t want you to.’ It was crazy."
