According to the Los Angeles Times, original GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler has bought a house in Studio City, California for $1,337,500. The property previously sold in 1988 for $475,000.
Adler's new English-countryside-inspired home was built in 1942 and contains more than 2,700 square feet of living space, including three bedrooms and three bathrooms. One of the two master suites features a cobblestone fireplace, a sitting room and vaulted ceilings.
Steven and his critically acclaimed new band ADLER are currently in the studio recording new material as well as confirming 2015 tour dates for both the U.S. and overseas.
Steven told Argentinean rock journalist Lucas H. Gordon at the end of October that he was nearly ten months sober and was enrolled in "a nice program" to "take care" of his "problems with alcohol." He added: "I'm looking forward to going out and playing again… And it's just been very exciting. Having a new life is exciting."
Steven Adler 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.
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.
