Former GUNS N' ROSES and current ADLER'S APPETITE drummer Steven Adler has issued the following update:
"Oh, man, this [most recent ADLER'S APPETITE U.S.] tour was great! Thank you so much to everybody that came out to see us, to everybody that hung around and had all those nice things to say… Man, we played places…we played a cornfield! Iowa! They flattened a cornfield out and put in a mini-carnival. They had a semi-trailer-truck and put a PA in it, and we played the show in a fucking cornfield! It was called 'Cornstock!' So many great shows, great people"
"Morale within the [ADLER'S APPETITE] band is fabulous! Ricky [vocalist Rick Stitch] did a great job! We lost him in Chicago; he went out with some chick and never came back to the bus, so he had to catch another flight to make it home. He's havin' a great time and it was a great time. I love and thank each one of the guys; Alex [Grossi; guitar], Michael [Thomas; guitar], Chippy [Chip Z'nuff; bass], they were all at the top of their game, totally professional. The people loved them, of course!
"The audiences were fabulous! We put on such a big show; it's an arena show we put out! You go see bands at clubs and bars, you don't usually see people chanting, singing along with every word with their hands and arms up in the air. Even if it's just a hundred people, it looks like so much more with all the hands in the air 'cause they all are so into it! I swear (the audience ages) were anywhere from six to sixty! I couldn't believe it, but all I can say is so many people really loved our show and said it was better than when they saw what Axl [Rose] was doin'. It's crazy, but that's the main thing I heard! So we're workin' on getting more goin', there's a few shows comin' up and hey, I love you all, God bless, and thank you!"
