ADLER'S APPETITE, the new band led by former GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler, were forced to pull out of their support slot to HANOI ROCKS in Nottingham, U.K. after the wife of HANOI ROCKS guitarist Andy McCoy objected to disparaging comments Adler made about her in a recent interview.
Commented ADLER'S APPETITE guitarist Keri Kelli, "Andy's wife didn't like Steven's comments so they kindly asked us not to play and they would still pay us, so that's what we did."
In an interview published last month on the RockConfidential.com web site, Adler said of Andy McCoy, "His wife — if she's still his wife — used to be Izzy's [Stradlin, ex-GUNS N' ROSES] girlfriend back in the day. She's the biggest cunt, slut, whore, loser, piece of shit I've ever met in my life! After they let me go from GN'R, Andy was living up the street from me. We started writing together. He would come down and I would say, 'Do not bring that goofy wife of yours!' I'd be in the front yard and I'd see him up the hill and I'd flip him off because he was bringing her. One afternoon we were playing and I had a locked gate. The wife and Erin Everly [Axl Rose's ex-girlfriend] come over. Axl and Erin had got in a fight. That's what really did it. This girl gave her valium and some other stuff and kept telling me to give her heroin. There is now way in hell I would ever do anything to Erin, even sexually. The closest we ever got was eating sushi in Studio City once. Three guys came in with shotguns and robbed the place while we were there. They took everybody's shit but ours! I've always been a big fan of Michael Monroe and Andy McCoy. Michael got to play on the 'Use Your Illusion' stuff. Me, Slash, and Duff wrote the music. I only got to play on 'Civil War'. We're doing that one live, too."
