But he still hopes for a GN'R reunion
Former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler has made a new name for himself (sort of) as a reality TV star on Celebrity Rehab and Sober House.
But the one-time GN'R basher still holds out hopes for a full-scale reunion tour with Axl, Slash and the rest of the original Appetite For Destruction gang.
In a somewhat bizarre video interview posted below from Psychobabbletv.com, Adler talks about what a Guns N' Roses reunion would mean to him:
Wants to finish what he started
"I'm not gonna wait for him (Axl Rose). I waited and cried for decades.. Fuck him! Forget him!" Steven Adler
"It would be nice if we could do a reunion. I know, it would help me, in my life. Because I'm afraid when I die I'm gonna have to come back again to finish what I started. And if I could finish what I started with the GN'R guys, as a band, I know I could die happy."
Still, Adler has some abrupt and curt words for Axl Rose. "But I'm not gonna wait for him (Axl Rose). I waited and cried for decades, and no more. Fuck him! Forget him!"
Slamming your ex-singer? Guess that's one way to get a reunion going.
Adler does admit, however, that he's reconciled with former bandmate Slash, who even asked the drummer to play on a track on his upcoming solo album. "Once I get on one song, the magic will happen," says Adler.
At least he's confident. Check out the video interview with Steven Adler below.
