DRUMMER STEVEN ADLER PERFORMS GN’R CLASSIC IN HOLLWOOD
Steven Adler paid tribute to the late King of The Sunset Strip, Mario Maglieri, during Tuesday night’s (October 3rd) “Ultimate Jam Night” at the world-famous Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California.
The former Guns N’ Roses drummer was joined briefly by radio personality Eddie Trunk before playing a four-song GN’R set, starting with Welcome To The Jungle, performed with Budderside and former Adler’s Appetite singer Patrick Stone, guitarist Jacob Bunton, Colin Reid and L.A. Guns bassist Johnny Martin. Adler was also joined for the GN’R classic “Used To Love Her” by Quiet Riot guitarist Alex Grossi, Beautiful Creatures bassist Kenny Kweens, Steve Dawson of Ritchie Ramone’s band and Ultimate Jam Night’s MC and ZO2 frontman Paulie Z.
Video footage of the performance can be seen below.
The drummer reunited with GN’R for the first time in twenty-six years during the 2016 leg of the Not In This Lifetime tour.
Adler is currently planning on doing select live dates in 2018, performing the landmark record Appetite For Destruction in it’s entirety.
Is Adler trying to audition for his ex bandmates for the next G&R “reunion”? I think it’s sad he wasn’t a major part of the Not in this Lifetime “reunion” tour because he was there on Appetite, the album that catapulted the band to overrated success (IMO, considering their album output)…and then it would have better justified the exorbitant ticket prices.
no he isnt. not even close. he loves those songs, and enjoys playing them. so he does.
The 3+ hour shows completely justify the ticket prices.
