|Due to personal obligations, vocalist Jizzy Pearl (RATT/ex-LOVE/HATE) was unable to join ADLER'S APPETITE for their current tour of Japan. "Fortunately, the guys were able to recruit BANG TANGO's own Joe Leste to substitute his vocal talents for the shows," reads a posting on The Official Steven Adler FanSite. "Joe has experience singing the [GUNS N' ROSES] tunes, as he performed with Stevie [Adler, drums, ex-GUNS N' ROSES] during the bad Boys of Metal Tour." The affected dates are as follows:
Mar. 10 - Osaka, JPN - Club Free
Mar. 11 - Osaka, JPN - Clinic at MI (Adler, Kelli, Crane)
Mar. 12 - Tokyo, JPN - Club Phas
Mar. 13 - Tokyo, JPN - Club Phas
ADLER'S APPETITE is the new band featuring Pearl, Adler, VINCE NEIL/ex-SLASH'S SNAKEPIT guitarist Keri Kelli, and ex-VINCE NEIL/RATT bassist Robbie Crane. The group recently issued their debut EP, available now via the group's official web site. Steven describes the CD, which includes covers of "Draw the Line" by AEROSMITH and "Hollywood" by THIN LIZZY, as "dark," both lyrically and in tone.
Velvet Revolver are scheduled to play at the Grugahalle in Essen, Germany on June 17th, 2005. According to the venue, it's their only German arena show.
