Original Guns N' Roses Member Reacts To Reunion Rumor
He tells the Jasta Show: "What I accomplished with those guys is everything in the world to me. My dreams came true. I didn't plan on it ending in five years. I thought we were gonna be like the Stones or Aerosmith and be together for 40, 50 years. I had no idea. But you know what? All that time is in the past."
Slash and GNR frontman Axl Rose have recently reconnected after a two-decade feud - and it's come as welcome news to Adler. He says: "I think that's great because it's been too long. The world has missed out on 25 years of great music because those two weren't together.
"Slash and Axl - it's like Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page. Imagine if those guys weren't together. It's a shame, and I'm just so glad that they're talking and everything is in the past like it should be."
The reconciliation has sparked rumors of a possible classic lineup reunion - and although the drummer insists he's heard nothing from his former bandmates, he feels it's something that has to come to fruition.
He adds: "If it does happen, I guarantee I will be the last to know about it. If we played together, the whole arena would cry with joy - but I have nothing to do with it. I wish I did. If I did, it would have happened a long time ago. But we owe it to the fans to do it." Stream the full interview here.
