KISS Star Reveals Awkward Steven Adler Moment

(Classic Rock) Kiss drummer Eric Singer has recalled the "awkward moment" when he came third in a drumming contest - while future Guns N' Roses sticksman Steven Adler didn't reach the final.

And he's used the memory to demonstrate how life can be unpredictable. Neither of them were established musicians when they entered the Los Angeles competition in 1984, hosted by veteran drummer Carmine Appice.

Singer tells MusicRadar: "It was a radio station. You sent in a tape and from that they picked 50 people, 15 girls and 35 guys. They had you play in a parking lot - out of that they picked the finalists. Steven Adler didn't get picked for the finals. I remember he was upset.

"His mother went up to Carmine Appice, 'How come my son Steven didn't get picked?' I was standing right on the sidewalk next to him, while his mother was asking Carmine. It had to be an awkward moment."

He continues: "The funny thing was, three years later he's in the biggest band in the world - so you never know how things are going to turn out. I made the finals. I didn't win, I took third place." here.
