Duff McKagan Reunites With Steven Adler At London Gig
March 1, 2011
Rich Chamberlain of MusicRadar.com reports: Steven Adler and Duff McKagan performed together last night as Adler’s Appetite rounded off their European tour.
The pair, two fifths of the original Guns N’ Roses line-up, played ‘It’s So Easy’ and ‘My Michelle’ at the Underworld show.
Steven told Rhythm that the reunion came about after Duff’s appearance at the Birmingham Guitar Show at the weekend.
The drummer said: “Some fan saw him at a guitar signing and Duff wrote me a note on a poster of himself saying he was going to be at the show in London.”
With singles ‘Fading’, ‘Stardog’ and ‘Alive’ available now, the band are hoping to have an album ready ahead of a return to the UK in the summer.
Adler continues: “We’re going home Tuesday and by Friday we’ll be back in the studio. We want to have something by May or June so when we come back to Europe and the UK we want to have a whole record.
“I’d like to do is come home to a record deal and have someone like Bob Rock or Mutt Lange, one of the big boys. Someone I know who won’t put anything out that isn’t great. I would like that kind of hard work. You always her stories of Def Leppard or AC/DC in the studio and they worked their asses off. Maybe 20 years ago I didn’t have the patience for it, but now I have the patience for it and I’d love that hard work.”
When it comes to hard work on the road, it seems that this latest European run has had enough high points to make the graft worthwhile.
Steven explained: “The tour has been wonderful. Every show has been sold out and we’re looking forward to coming back in either May or June. We’ll do bigger places.”
