Fan-filmed video footage of original GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler and his band ADLER'S APPETITE performing the GN'R classic "Rocket Queen" on March 15, 2009 at Big Momma's in Seymour, Tennessee can be viewed below (clip uploaded by "TartynPink").
ADLER'S APPETITE has been confirmed for this year's South Texas Rock Fest, set to take place May 22-24, 2009 in downtown San Antonio, Texas at Hemisfair Park.
Singer Sheldon Tarsha of ADLER'S APPETITE was a guest on the February 21 edition of the "Maximum Threshold" show. You can now download the program as an MP3 audio file at this location.
ADLER'S APPETITE's current lineup is rounded out by Alex Grossi (HOOKERS 'N' BLOW, ex-QUIET RIOT) on guitar, Michael Thomas (FASTER PUSSYCAT) on guitar, and Chip Z'nuff (ENUFF Z'NUFF) on bass.
ADLER'S APPETITE commemorated the 20th anniversary of GNR's classic debut "Appetite for Destruction" in 2007 by touring South America. However, Adler was forced to cancel a European tour with the band due to "personal issues."
Adler is featured in "Celebrity Rehab Presents Sober House", an eight-episode, one hour series that premiered on January 15 on VH1.
The other members of GUNS N' ROSES band threw Adler out in 1989, saying his drug use was harming his performance. In 1993, the band agreed to pay him $2.3 million to settle Adler's lawsuit claiming a 1990 agreement by which he gave up his interest in the band was read to him and signed without his attorney present.
