|From Metal Sludge:
Direct phone calls to Metal Sludge have confirmed that the shit has officially hit the fan with the Adler's Appetite tour in Europe.
Michael Thomas & Sheldon Tarsha on behalf of the entire group (less Adler) will be forwarding an official statement at first chance.
In a nutshell from Thomas: "Spain was fine, Steven was fine and everything was great! Until Adler blew a junkie gasket at our first show in Germany. Adam Bomb opened up and after the show he & Adler vanished. The next day Steven was a cussing, venom spewing viper who was clearly NOT the same person he was the day before. It's drugs, it has to be drugs."
Tarsha & Thomas both have confirmed that they tried to reason with Steven along with the rest of the band and crew to no avail. Last they knew a Guns n' Roses tribute band from Italy was enroute to replace the group for the remainder of the dates.
