HarperCollins.com has unveiled the cover art for former GUNS N' ROSES and current ADLER'S APPETITE drummer Steven Adler's forthcoming tell-all biography, "My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N' Roses", which is presently scheduled for a June 22 release. The 304-page hardcover book is available for pre-order for $25.99 at this location.
Adler was featured in "Celebrity Rehab Presents Sober House", an eight-episode, one hour series that premiered in January 2009 on VH1.
The other members of GUNS N' ROSES band threw Adler out in 1989, saying his drug use was harming his performance. In 1993, the band agreed to pay him $2.3 million to settle Adler's lawsuit claiming a 1990 agreement by which he gave up his interest in the band was read to him and signed without his attorney present.
ADLER'S APPETITE has been in the studio all week putting together new original music for a spring/summer release. "The songs sound great," says Adler, "It feels so good to finally be moving forward and doing this with this lineup. It's been a long time coming, but will be worth the wait."
ADLER'S APPETITE is planning on debuting some of the new songs at the Key Club on April 10. They are also in the process of approving dates for a European tour set to start mid-May.
ADLER'S APPETITE's current lineup is rounded out by vocalist Rick Stitch (of the Los Angeles-based group LADYJACK), guitarists Alex Grossi (HOOKERS 'N' BLOW, ex-QUIET RIOT) and Michael Thomas (FASTER PUSSYCAT) along with bassist Chip Z'nuff (ENUFF Z'NUFF).
ADLER'S APPETITE played its first show with Stitch on April 17, 2009 at the The Galaxy Theater in Santa Ana, California.
Singer Sheldon Tarsha announced his departure from ADLER'S APPETITE in April 2009, saying it was "time now for me to follow my heart and continue working with my original band."
