Former Guns N’ Roses Drummer Steven Adler Unveils New Band
We already knew that Slash was working on a song with ex-Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler, since he tweeted about the collaboration the other night. Now, full details about Adler’s new project have surfaced. The skins smasher’s new project is simply named Adler and the power trio features the drummer alongside singer Jacob Bunton (Lynam, Mars Electric) and guitarist Lonny Paul (Adler’s Appetite).
“I love the music that we’re creating!” Adler exclaimed in a press release. He was incredibly stoked about his bandmates, saying, “I haven’t been this excited about my band since the GN’R days. Jacob is exactly the singer I have been searching for. He has an amazing range and is a great writer and frontman. Lonny is an amazing guitarist and songwriter and the vibe is amazing!”
Adler (both the stickman and the band) are holed up in a Los Angeles studio as we speak, cranking out their debut. Adler shared photos from the studio via Facebook and revealed that fans can follow the progress of the album since they will regularly post updates. So you will be able to get a bird’s eye view into the process.
Slash once again tweeted about working with Adler, posting a message about the particular song he worked on last night — saying the “track is great.” We can’t wait to hear it, and again, we would be lying if we didn’t say that we hope discussions about a performance at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, set for next month, ensued. Just sayin’.
