Steven Adler Says Guns N’ Roses Owe It to Their Fans to Reunite
"I wanna end it on a good note," Adler tells Jamey Jasta. "I wanna end it great and be a part of that. We owe it to the fans to do it."
"I think that's great, 'cause it's been too long," says Adler, who was with Guns N' Roses from 1985-90. "The world has missed out on 25 years of great music, because those two weren't together. I mean, Slash and Axl, it's like Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page. Imagine if those guys weren't together. It's a shame, and I'm just so glad that they're talking and everything is in the past like it should be."
Matt Sorum followed Adler, serving from 1990–97; by then, Slash had already split with the band. These days, Rose is the only remaining classic-era member.
Of course, Guns N' Roses already let a golden opportunity to work together again go by at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Fans can circle the date for a planned appearance at January's Soundwave 2016 to see if they take advantage of the next reunion chance.
