Ex-Guns N’ Roses Drummer Steven Adler Says He Isn’t Angry With Axl Rose Anymore
Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler says he is no longer upset with Axl Rose over the dispute about the band’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Adler famously called Rose an “asshole” after he didn’t attend the ceremony back in April. Rose did not want to be inducted at all and was booed by the crowd when his name was read out. Adler has also called the new Guns N’ Roses line-up “Axl and His Hacks.”
But in an interview with Rolling Stone, Adler says he isn’t angry anymore.
“I’m not angry with Axl anymore. I love him and I feel blessed that I got to work with him and achieve what I achieved with him. I guess time does heal all wounds.”
He added the following about his time with the original Guns N’ Roses.
“It’s nice to appreciate it, but I’m no longer angry and pining for a reunion. I’m not angry about it anymore. It’s flushed out of my system.”
