STEVEN ADLER Comments On Reunion Jam With SLASH, IZZY

Former GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler has commented on his surprise jam with ex-GNR guitarists Slash and Izzy Stradlin during a show last month by his new band SUKI JONES. The occasion, which took place at the Key Club in Hollywood, California, marked the first time that the three former GUNS N' ROSES members performed together since appearing at Farm Aid on April 7, 1990.

When asked in a Q&A session posted on The Official Steven Adler Fan Site how he felt about such a reunion, Adler said, "it was real nice. Well, the guys in my band, [singer] Jizzy [Pearl, RATT, ex-LOVE/HATE], Kerri [Kelli, ex-SLASH'S SNAKEPIT]...are great, too. I love playing the songs with them. Having Slash and Izzy up there with us made playing those songs more real, y'know? They are my brothers, we accomplished a lot together. Playing with them again was great. I hope the fans liked it. I mean, meeting the people, everyone has been so nice. I'd like to say 'Thank you' for comin' out to all the shows, showin' how much you guys really love the songs. Every show, I tried to tell everybody that I met, 'Thank you so much.' It's been so great, I want to play for everybody forever, y'know? I love to play rock n' roll music, I love playing for you!"

Adler also commented on VELVET REVOLVER, the new band featuring Slash and fellow ex-GNR members Duff McKagan (bass) and Matt Sorum (drums). When asked if he is bummed that he's not part of the band, Steven said, "Hell, no! I mean, I would never try to stand in their way... I wish the guys the best! Of course, I think it's great. I think they are going to put out a record which is going to be pure rock n' roll. Personally, I'm looking forward to it, I know it's gonna be great!"
