Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler guested on “Inside Metal” and he shared his thoughts on one of their most popular albums back in their heydays, “Appetite for Destruction.”
According to the drummer, he was not at his best when they recorded the album.
But now, he said that he is a better player and his timing is much improved.
He also thinks that album producer Mike Clink, wanted the album to be over with.
Also, he shared more details about his 2010 autobiography, “My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N’ Roses.” He went all out on narrating his life back when he was still addicted to heroin and crack.
( Via Blabber Mouth ) “It was such a great release to get all those things and emotions out,” he said.
“It really helped me to move on with my life.
That’s one thing I did learn in AA.
Just being able to get your feelings out is very therapeutic.
And plus there’s thing that happened when we were younger; we think we’re the only ones [that went through it].” He also shared some shocking revelations about sexual abuse and how he was able to get off his drug addiction.
“I was talking about the sexual-abuse thing; I was thirteen years old.
Obviously, that bothered me my whole life.
Once I worked with Dr.
Drew and I talked about it with people that understood and weren’t gonna judge me…
Which, nobody judges you anyway, but you think [they will].
I was able to get off the heroin and the crack, working with Dr.
And then I still resentments(sic) toward my old band.
And once I was able to work through that…”(sic) he added.
