Former GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler has turned down a "substantial sum" from a New York-based publishing company for the rights to the writing collaboration of him and his mother, DeAnna, according to Adler's official fan site. Their story depicts the struggle of a family, chronicling Steven's life from his days as a child on the streets of L.A., his rise to fame as drummer for GUNS N' ROSES, his subsequent firing from the band, and the dismal, downward spiral into the seedy underworld of hard drugs that followed. When it became clear that the book company simply wanted Steven to trash the band, and dig up dirt about each member, Steven refused. Deanna is currently talking with several other publishers and the book may yet see the light of day.
