STEVEN ADLER Performs Live For First Time Since Stabbing Incident (Video)

Fan-filmed video footage of ADLER'S APPETITE, the band featuring former GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler, performing on July 12 at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas, Nevada can be seen below.

The Vegas concert marked Adler's first live appearance since he was hospitalized for a self-inflicted stab wound.

On June 27, local authorities responded to a call shortly after 6:30 p.m. for a possible suicide attempt at Adler's Studio City, California, home.

A spokesperson at the Los Angeles Fire Department confirmed to People that they were called to the address for a possible stabbing and transported one patient to the local hospital via ambulance.

Adler's representative later told TMZ that the stabbing was not a suicide attempt and was simply an accident. The rep would not specify what caused the accident except to describe it as a "very minor, superficial wound." He also insisted that Adler has been sober for several years.

Steven was the drummer for GUNS N' ROSES from 1985 to 1990. He was eventually fired from the band due to his drug addiction, which caused him to spiral down into depression and more drug use.

Adler's autobiography, "My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N' Roses", came out in July 2010. In the book, Adler tells all, fearlessly addressing his struggles with heroin and crack addiction; his financial ruin after being kicked out of GN'R; his shattered marriage; and the severe health problems that nearly claimed his life on several occasions.

GUNS N' ROSES was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2012. Adler, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan attended the ceremony, while singer Axl Rose and founding guitarist Izzy Stradlin stayed home.
