Jed Gottlieb of BostonHerald.com recently conducted an interview with original GUNS N' ROSES and current ADLER'S APPETITE drummer Steven Adler. A few excerpts from the chat follow below.One being newly sober after three suicide attempts, two heart attacks, a stroke and 28 overdoses: "I got sick and tired of coming to in the hospital or having some kids wake me up naked in the middle of the street. I can say that I was lucky that I only had a stroke. At least I can still play drums." On his newly published tell-all autobiography, "My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N' Roses": "I wouldn't be sitting in the Cracker Barrel in Wisconsin [on tour with ADLER'S APPETITE] right now if I didn't write the book. There are some really devastating things in the book, and getting those things out and actually reading the thing once I got them out made me realize I could move on with my life. "Working on the book, I did my crying and yelling and pounding on the wall and throwing bricks through the windows. Whatever it took to get those emotions out of me and onto the page, that's what I did to heal." On his ex-junkie, now-sober peers in MÖTLEY CRÜE, AEROSMITH and GUNS N' ROSES: "So many of us have gone through the same thing. When somebody like Steven Tyler [AEROSMITH] tells you that he's been through what you've been through and that you're going to be OK, you're going to listen." On the possibility of a reunion of the classic GUNS N' ROSES lineup: "It's not up to Slash [guitar] or Duff [McKagan, bass] or Izzy [Stradlin, guitar], who wouldn't do it for the money but for the fans. It's all an Axl [Rose, vocals] deal. He's got to be the one to say OK. But I won't pray to God to talk to Axl because if God tried to talk to Axl, he'd make him wait. So I'm not going to bother God with that because he'll come back to me saying, 'Steven, you made me go talk to him and the (expletive) made me wait outside all day." Read more from BostonHerald.com.
