Steven Adler Interview
This was one of those “expect nothing and you won’t be disappointed” situations. The picture below is worth a thousand words.
The sad reality about Steven Adler is he’s as famous for abusing drugs as he is for drumming. I am of the belief that Steven Adler isn’t doing interviews, but doing damage control and image repair. After all, once you get past the fact he’s Steven Adler from Guns N’ Roses, he’s a trainwreck. I truly hope with his current sobriety that he’s cleaned up the wreckage and put his life back on track.
I walked away from this interview with a smile on my face. Sure, Steven is a little out there, but you can’t help but root for a guy that’s put himself through hell and has taken responsibility for his actions. During the interview, Adler’s Appetite bassist Chip Z’Nuff joined us for an impromptu ten minutes to talk about Steven Adler and the overall direction and focus of the band. Chip Z’Nuff is also also the co-founder and bass player of Enuff Z’Nuff, a band I’ve followed and enjoyed for the last two decades. Chip tells a cool story about breaking into Steven Adler’s house. There’s just something visually hilarious about Chip Z’Nuff trespassing.
I want you all to put your thoughts on Steven Adler aside and listen to this show. His energy and optimism is infectious, and it’s led me to give him a second chance. If I can be converted, believe me, all of you can.
