Steven Adler Reveals Suicide Attempts
Adler, 46, became the first member of GnR's classic lineup to leave the band when he was fired in 1990 over his inability to record because of his heroin addiction.
Since then he's spent many years trying to clean himself up – but now says the pressure led him to attempt taking his own life on two separate occasions. Adler tells Rukus magazine: "You'd think it's easy to do, but let me tell you: it's not easy. Both times I tried killing myself I took 100 valium, drank a big bottle of Jagermeister and shot up three quarters of a gram of heroin." more on this story
