Steven Adler Bio

Steven Adler is an American Drummer. He is best known for being a founding member of legendary hard rock band Guns N’ Roses. After GnR he started his own band called Adler’s Appetite.

Steven Adler was born in Ohio on 22nd January, 1965. His father left his mother when he was young. He then moved with his mother to Los Angeles, California. He changed his name to Steven and adopted his step dad’s surname Adler. He is a childhood friend of Slash. Slash is a also a founding member of Guns N’ Roses.

Steven Adler and Slash started their own band Road Crew. They recruited Duff McKagan to be their Bassist in 1983. However, they couldn’t find a suitable vocal. So Slash disbanded the group. Steven Adler joined Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin from La Guns and Road Crew band mates to form Guns N’ Roses. The band released their first album Appetite For Destruction in 1987. The album became the highest grossing debut album till date. It holds the record till today. He was an addict and thus Axl fired him from the group. He was replaced by Matt Sorum. He then struggled with his addiction. Sometime later he started his own band Adler’s Appetite. Steven Adler was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of the classic line-up of Guns N’ Roses. He appeared on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Pinsky.
Steven Adler was one of the reason Guns N’ Roses became a global hit. Izzy Stradlin said that after he left their music changed a lot and the band suffered.
