On Tuesday Adler Gives Up Guns N' Roses Reunion Hopes was a top story. Here is the recap: (Banana 101.5) Ex-Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler is done talking about Axl Rose aka 'the redhead,' saying the singer's letter to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame exposed the singer's "true colors." Even though Adler spoke at length about Axl and the current incarnation to Loudwire, after all the drama, mudslinging and the ensuing media firestorm, he has given his final interview where Rose's name will be mentioned.
He likened the Hall of Fame event and playing with Slash and Duff McKagan once again to "letting go" and that it felt "a huge weight was lifted off my body." He considers all hopes of a GN'R original lineup reunion to be squashed for good, too. "That's done," Adler told Rolling Stone. "That's totally out of my system. I was hoping that the five of us would have been there to play and show our respect to the fans."
He continued, "If it was going to happen, that's when it was going to happen, and in Axl's letter, he showed his true colors to the world," he said, referring to the induction. When pressed to clarify what he meant about "true colors," the kit minder said, "I think it's disrespect. He's not for the fans, which is everybody in the world. Basically, he told everybody in the world, 'F— you, I don't give a s— what you think.'" - more on this story
