Original Guns N' Roses Drummer Steven Adler Gets His Revenge
His band, Adler, recently released debut album Back From The Dead. He says the new music has led audiences to stop expecting him to perform a set of GnR classics, and call for more of his new material.
He tells Legendary Rock Interviews: "That is my revenge. The only revenge I wanted on that whole situation was success. I didn't want vengeance – I didn't want to hurt anybody – but I wanted to make a great record because, I think success is the greatest revenge."
Adler believes his band is made up of the "right recipe of people" and credits guitarist Lonny Paul with knocking him into physical shape. "He helped me lose 25 pounds," the drummer explains. "Until we started working out I didn't realise how heavy 25 pounds is until I lifted up a 25-pound weight and said, 'Holy crap, this is what I've been carrying around with me?' It's all thanks to Lonny." more on this story
