Former GUNS N’ ROSES drummer Steven Adler has joined forces with Lonnie Paul (guitar; ADLER’S APPETITE) and Jacob Bunton (vocals, guitar; LYNAM) in a brand new band simply called ADLER. The group has completed eight songs for its debut album, which will feature a guest appearance by Adler‘s former GUNS N’ ROSES bandmate Slash. The sessions are being overseen by former DOKKEN and current FOREIGNER/TOOTH AND NAIL bassist Jeff Pilson.
A photo of the new band in the studio with Pilson can be found below.
In 2010, Adler collaborated with Slash on the latter’s self-titled debut solo album. He appeared on the track “Baby Can’t Drive”, along with RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS bassist Flea, Alice Cooper and Nicole Scherzinger. The song was featured on an expanded edition of the album released by Classic Rock magazine.
Slash, Adler, bassist Duff McKagan, singer Axl Rose and guitarist Izzy Stradlin will all be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame next month in Cleveland, along with later GUNS N’ ROSES members, keyboardist Dizzy Reed and drummer Matt Sorum.
