Steven Adler: Steven Adler Born: 22-Jan-1965 Birthplace: Cleveland, OH Gender: Male Race or Ethnicity: White Sexual orientation: Straight Occupation: Drummer Nationality: United States Executive summary: Former Guns N' Roses drummer Mother: Deanna Adler Who is Steven Adler ?: Who is Steven Adler ? Steven Adler moved to Los Angeles in 1972. He met Slash in 1983-1984 (some say 1979-1980) and they formed Road Crew which eventually split up. When GNR was formed in 1985, they needed a drummer and Duff Mc Kagan suggested Steven Adler. It's no secret Steven had drug problems. Guns n Roses could only play two songs at Farm Aid IV in 1990 due to Steven's bad condition. The drummer was fired in 1991. In 1992, he made a lawsuit to GNR blaming them for his drug addiction. In 1993, there was an out of court settlement of 2.5 million. He is apparently presently writing a book, we'll keep you posted on that. Early life : Early life Steven Adler was born on January 22, 1965 in Cleveland, Ohio. He was born into the Jewish faith and has some Icelandic heritage. Adler moved to Los Angeles with his mother, Deanna, and older brother Kenny, as a young child. His mother re-married to Melvin Adler and had another child, Jamie. Steven's younger brother Jamie is a booking agent for such hip-hop acts as Bone Thugs N' Harmony and Tyrese . Steven's nephew, Max, is also involved in the entertainment business producing stage-shows in Las Vegas and several reality television shows. Adler met future Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash at the age of 13. The two attended the same junior high school in California and when Adler had a skateboarding accident, Slash stopped to help him.The two became fast friends, and as Slash took up guitar, Adler gave up the guitar himself and took up drums, in order to form a band (albeit missing some components), Road Crew. Personal life : Personal life Adler's substance abuse issues continued after he was fired from Guns N' Roses. In interviews as recent as 2006, he has stated that he has, at times, used $300 worth of drugs in one night. In 1996, Adler suffered a stroke and was briefly comatose after taking a particularly potent speedball, a cocktail of heroin and cocaine used intravenously; he later suffered a second stroke. He survived, but now lives with a speech impediment as a result. Adler's lawsuit against his former Guns N' Roses bandmates was settled out of court in 1993. He received a back-payment check of $2,250,000 USD and was granted 15% of the royalties for everything he recorded prior to his departure. In 1997, Adler was convicted on a domestic violence charge for attacking a woman with whom he had been living with, and was sentenced to four days in jail, three years of probation and mandatory drug counseling. A year later, he pleaded no contest to attacks on two other women and was sentenced to a 150-day term in prison and a year of domestic violence counseling.
