Steven Adler Says The Guns N' Roses Reunion 'Was Literally A Second Dream Come True"

May 9, 2017

Now that the Guns N' Roses reunion tour has Slash and Duff McKagan sharing the stage once again with Axl Rose, one of the other major highlights of the "Not In This Lifetime" tour has been the  return of drummer Steven Adler for a limited role in the band.

Loudwire caught up with Adler while attending the "Ride for Ronnie" motorcycle rally to raise funds for cancer research in honor of the late Ronnie James Dio. When asked about what it was like to be back onstage with his GNR bretheren, "That was so amazing," said Adler. “It was literally a second dream come true. I wish I could’ve done more songs, but I’m thankful I got to do what I got to do. And if they ever give me a call and want me to come back, I’d love to play with them. I love those guys.”

Adler was part of the band's original lineup before being replaced by Matt Sorum due to substance abuse. But he says that being back in the grove, and being sober has been one of the best memories of his life. “As a team we created our dream come true. We created everything we dreamed about as teenagers. I’m so glad I got to do that and a lot of people didn’t. Plus, I’m 52 and I’m alive, baby!”

But what are his plans for future music? Adler responded, saying, “[I’ll] probably take most of this band that I’m playing with here tonight and mostly just do some shows. I just love to play and they’re great guys and a lot of fun.”
