Former GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler is scheduled to fly to Orange County, CA today (Sept. 13) to begin pre-production on the debut ADLER'S APPETITE record, tentatively due in early 2005 via Shrapnel Records. No further information is available at this time.
In other news, October will see Steven go out on the road for a series of East Coast performances. Performing with Steven on the East Coast dates will once again be Joe Leste and Alex Grossi (from BANG TANGO and BEAUTIFUL CREATURES) and Chuck Wright (ex-QUIET RIOT). The guys will be playing a long set of rock 'n' roll classics, and, of course, a healthy dose of GN'R tunes.
