Exclusive Metal Sludge video interview with ex-Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler
Adler invites the Sludge into his home near Los Angeles, and our very own Gerry Gittelson gets the scoop on the Celebrity Rehab star who’s looking to find a new singer and rhythm guitarist for his solo project Adler’s Appetite.
Adler, fired from Guns N’ Roses back in the day for excessive drug use following the phenomenal success of "Appetite For Destruction" — considered by many the greatest rock album of all-time — has had his ups and downs through the years, but he’s been on a hot streak.
He just finished his second stint on Celebrity Rehab, and he even published a book about his life. Plus, Adler’s Appetite received a big shot in the arm when Sludge fave Chip Z’Nuff joined in as the bass player. Guitarist Michael Thomas, who joins us for the interview, is also a key member, but Adler is on the hunt for a new singer following the resignation of singer Rick Stitch and rhythm guitarist Romo. Adler and his mates expect to fill the vacancies soon in time for a world tour beginning in May.
In this utterly candid interview with no edits, Adler pulls no punches, and you get it all. Steven talks about how he himself let Guns N’ Roses down, how Tommy Lee is famous for having a big huge rig (dong), and that Bret Michaels is a super star. Enjoy!
