Ex-GUNS N' ROSES drummer rejoining the band?
STEVEN ADLER's gig cancelled. LA's Whisky A Go Go Promises “Big Announcement”
GN'R has so far announced six headlining performances in April, including two in Las Vegas and two at California's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, with singer Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan slated to perform together again for the first time in 22 years.The rest of the band's lineup for the shows (and, why not, a potential tour later in the year) remains unclear.
Adler was fired from GUNS N' ROSES in 1990 for his rampant drug use and replaced by Matt Sorum.
Adler told VH1 Classic's Eddie Trunk in a separate interview about the possibility of his involvement in a GN'R reunion: "I love those guys, and I always will, but Duff, he doesn't think I'm cool. And Slash, he doesn't believe that I have [two years] sober. He doesn't believe it. I don't know why, but they forget that at one time in their life, they were doing drugs and drinking and they were fucking up. They forget that they were like that too. Duff has got 20 years sober or more, Slash has got, like, 11 or 12 years sober, and I've got [two years]. So everybody gets it at a different time. I'm just thankful I got it."
