Rick has been recording with former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Gilby Clarke, and his song "Make It Right" recently appeared in the feature film "The Grind", starring Danny Trejo and Tom Sizemore.

Singer Sheldon Tarsha announced his departure from ADLER'S APPETITE last month, saying it was "time now for me to follow my heart and continue working with my original band."

ADLER'S APPETITE's current lineup is rounded out by Alex Grossi (HOOKERS 'N' BLOW, ex-QUIET RIOT) on guitar and Michael Thomas (FASTER PUSSYCAT) on guitar.
