Alex Grossi Talks About The Reformation Of Adler’s Appetite


December 4, 2008

Sleaze Roxx recently interviewed guitarist Alex Grossi of Quiet Riot and Beautiful Creatures fame. Alex just announced that he has joined Adler’s Appetite for some live shows, and had this to say about the band.

Sleaze Roxx: You just landed a gig with Steven Adler in Adler’s Appetite, how did that come about?

Alex Grossi: I had played with Steven on the 2004 “Bad Boys of Metal” tour and also did some one-offs with him later that year. We have been friends since, and I guess when it came time for him to put a line-up together, my name came up, a phone call was made and here we are!

Sleaze Roxx: Who else is in the band these days?

Alex Grossi: The line is a really solid-one that I have a great feeling about. I will be sharing guitar duties with longtime Adler alumni Michael Thomas (Faster Pussycat). We also have Chip Z’Nuff (Enuff Z’Nuff) on bass, Sheldon Tarsha on lead vox and of course, Steven.

Sleaze Roxx: I take it Steven is clean these days, do you worry that he might fall off the wagon when you hit the road?

Alex Grossi: There is always going to be that concern with anyone with a history of addiction, but he has surrounded himself with some really good people this time and has a very positive attitude and is the most happy when behind a kit, I think he will be just fine.
