Steven Adler Rejoins Guns N’ Roses On Stage In Cincinnati – Blabbermouth.net<!–
Drummer Steven Adler rejoined GUNS N’ ROSES on stage earlier tonight (Wednesday, July 6) in Cincinnati, Ohio to perform two songs: “Out Ta Get Me” and “My Michelle”. This marked Adler‘s fist appearance with GN’R since 1990.

Singer Axl Rose introduced the drummer to the Brown Stadium crowd by simply saying: “On the drums, you might know this guy. Ladies and gentlemen, Mr. Steven Adler.” After playing “Out Ta Get Me”, Axl said: “I guess we should do another.”

 

Fan-filmed video footage and photos of Adler‘s appearance can be seen below.

The rest of the Cincinnati show featured the same GUNS N’ ROSES lineup that played seven headlining gigs in April, as well as several stadium dates in late June and earlier this month: singer Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan, alongside keyboardist Dizzy Reed, guitarist Richard Fortus and drummer Frank Ferrer. Also appearing with them was second keyboardist Melissa Reese.

A source close to GUNS N’ ROSES told LA Weekly that Adler was having back surgery around the time of GUNS N’ ROSES‘ April 1 concert at The Troubadour, which was the real reason his band ADLER canceled its show at the Whisky A Go Go. The LA Weekly writer claimed that he was also “told [Adler was] not ready to tour with GN’R, not yet, and maybe not ever.”

Fan speculation around the involvement of Adler had been heavy, with some of the bandmembers reportedly not sure whether the drummer, who has a longer history of drug problems than any of the other musicians, could hold it together on the road.

Adler was fired from GUNS N’ ROSES in 1990 for his rampant drug use and replaced by Matt Sorum.

20140320-paulstanley-x306h-1395347304“The tour was horrible. Constant drudgery and misery. We spent all of our energy trying to coax Peter and Ace out of their hotel rooms. Ace sucker-punched Tommy at one of the shows. Peter had his usual handbook detailing how hotel staff had to treat him and which windows had to be covered with tinfoil and all that. There was no reasoning with either of them. We never knew if we’d make it to a show on time, and once we got onstage we never knew whether we’d get through the show. I mean, if a guy has trouble putting on his makeup, how is he going to play? Not surprisingly, the shows could be pretty awful.

I was angry at Peter and Ace for being disrespectful toward everything we had accomplished and everything the fans were giving us. I bought into the idea that this really was it. The end of Kiss. There was no place to go. it was unbearable.

We were stuck in a rut musically as well – basically playing the same 17 songs we’d taught them for the initial reunion. This was the third tour with the same set list. Peter and Ace just couldn’t master any more. The needle was already into the red. I had to come up with nonsensical interview responses to questions about why we were playing the same songs. I couldn’t just say, “because Peter and Ace can’t learn any others.”

KISS. You gotta luv them. I have been a fan since 1978. Here is a warm up show for the upcoming reunion tour back in 1996. This footage includes gaffs and mistakes including Ace Frehley’s guitar not working, Paul having to play Love Gun by himself, Gene’s bat wings falling off and someone hitting Ace’s guitar with a Frisbee!
