Steven Adler, här med sitt nya band "ADLER"
Den forne Guns N' Roses-trummisen Steven Adler berättar i en intervju med Rolling Stone att han är "done" med sin forne sångare Axl Rose.
Guns N' Roses valdes för två veckor sedan in i Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. En ceremoni som många förväntade sig att se originaluppsättningen av Guns N' Roses tillsammans igen för första gången på 16 år. Men några dagar innan gick Axl Rose ut och meddelade att han inte tänkte dyka upp och ville definitivt inte bli invald i sin frånvaro. Nu säger Steven Adler att han inte vill ha någonting alls att göra med sine forne sångare.
Rolling Stone: You think the Guns N' Roses chapter is closed?
That’s done. That’s totally out of my system. I was hoping that the five of us would have been there to play and show our respect to the fans, but the three of us who really do care about what our fans think and how much they’ve done for us were there, and we showed our love and respect. In my thank-you speech, I ended it with the words of the late, great Freddie Mercury. "I’ve taken my bows, my curtain calls, you’ve brought me fame and fortune and everything that goes with it, and I thank you all." I think that says it. It couldn’t have gone better. I showed my thanks and my love. Slash is really the main person from that band that is really super-duper…they’re all important, but Slash is the most important, because we grew up together, we started the whole thing together, so it was really great ending that chapter with him.
Rolling Stone: How did it feel playing those songs with Slash and Duff again?
It was great, and Myles Kennedy did a fabulous job…This is the only thing I’m going to say about Axl, and this is the last thing I’m ever going to say, ever, you’re getting it, is I feel blessed and thankful that he was a part of my life for that chapter of my life, but that’s it. That’s it. I have no desire to know him or work with him or do anything with him again. Letting go of that was like a huge weight was lifted off my body. I feel fucking free. Yay!
Rolling Stone: You and all the fans have wanted that reunion for years. That desire is gone on your part?
Yeah, it’s gone. If it was going to happen, that’s when it was going to happen, and in Axl’s letter, he showed his true colors to the world. After that, that’s it. Like I said, the main person I wanted to end that chapter with, and I’m going to start a new chapter with, was Slash.
Rolling Stone: What true colors did he show in that letter?
I think it’s disrespect. He's not for the fans, which is everybody in the world. Basically, he told everybody in the world, "Fuck you, I don’t give a shit what you think."
