“I’m Alive And Well”: Former Guns N’ Roses Drummer Steven Adler On Recent Hospitalisation
Following the worrying news last week that ex-Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler was hospitalised after reportedly stabbing himself in the stomach, the musician has updated fans that he is “alive and well”.
The sticksman revealed that none of his scheduled public appearances this month were cancelled, and blamed “media confusion” after news spread on June 27 that emergency services were responding to a possible suicide attempt at Steven’s home. He was allegedly taken to hospital with “non-life threatening injuries”.
“I’m really sorry about all this media confusion that’s been going on,” Steven said in a video on his Facebook page. “I’m alive and well. I’m looking forward to seeing everybody on July 12 at the Golden Nugget in Vegas and July 13 at this motorcycle rally in Oregon, which is gonna be bad to the bone. And I love everybody, and I can’t wait to see and hug everybody. Thank you so much for your love and support.”
Steven Adler was a part of the classic Guns N’ Roses line-up, recording their iconic debut album Appetite For Destruction in 1987, but was dismissed in 1990 due to his ongoing issues with substance abuse.
Despite not being a full-time member of GN’R since then, he was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame with the band in 2012.
Steven appeared as a special guest for a few shows with Guns N’ Roses as part of the Not In This Lifetime… reunion tour. The epic worldwide tour, which was been going since 2016, recently added even more dates for the United States later this year.
