RATT/ex-LOVE/HATE singer Jizzy Pearl has responded to comments made by ex-GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler regarding Pearl's departure from Steven's ADLER'S APPETITE project.
In an interview published by Argentina's Jedbangers magazine, Adler had the following to say regarding Jizzy: "Another jackass singer [was in the band for the recording of the group's first EP], I don't remember his name. I didn't like him very much. Not a good singer. . . If I would've known anyone who sang like that, I would've gotten someone else [before we recorded that EP]. I'm serious. I didn't like him very much. Not a good singer, not a good person and he can kiss my ass. I didn't like that guy." Asked about his current band, Adler stated, "It's so much more fun. We're more professional."
In a posting on his official message board, Pearl had the following response to Adler's remarks:
"Yeah, funny. I like the last part about Adler being 'more professional.' If you guys only knew... He thinks I had an affair with his wife. He also thinks Craig [Bedford, former ADLER'S APPETITE guitarist] had an affair with his wife, hence his firing. He also thinks that his wife travelled with us on the RATT bus this last summer. Adler's lawyer was there in Houston with us on the bus and could tell him otherwise, but he hasn't. Why? I could get [John] Corabi [RATT guitarist] and Warren [DiMartini, RATT guitarist] to come on here but that would be only feeding delusion. It's not up to me to tell people why Robbie [Crane, former ADLER'S APPETITE bassist] and Keri [Kelli, former ADLER'S APPETITE guitarist] were fired but the lie that they 'left on good terms' is exactly that — a lie. Keri was fully expecting to go to Europe. In fact, he worked many hours putting that tour together. Robbie was accused of some horrible shit and is seeking legal action against 'Mr. Professional'. I debate whether to tell people all the dirty little secrets that I have witnessed while on tour and off. Old habits die hard, I guess.
"Hey, New Guys, good luck with that...you're in for quite a thrill ride."
ADLER'S APPETITE's current lineup consists of the following musicians:
Chip Z'Nuff (ENUFF Z'NUFF) – Bass
Sheldon Tarsha – Vocals
Michael Thomas (BEAUTIFUL CREATURES) – Guitar
JT Longoria (IZZY STRADLIN) – Guitar
Steven Adler – Drums
ADLER'S APPETITE's new lineup recently completed an Argentine tour and will be touring Europe in January and February. A New Year's Eve gig at the Rainbow Bar & Grill in Las Vegas has also been booked.
