Steven Adler Apologizes To Current Members Of GN'R

According to Blabbermouth.net, original Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler has apologized to the band's lead singer, Axl Rose, and the other members of the current lineup of guns n' roses for calling them "hacks". In an interview with Loudwire conducted on Thursday, March 29, Adler spoke about his desire to see the original lineup for Guns N' Roses perform at the band's upcoming induction into Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, saying that he and fellow ex-Guns N' Roses member, Slash, would love to take the stage with their former bandmates once again. "[Slash is] my brother. I know he's up to it," Adler said. "He wants to do it. I want to do it. Just from what I hear, Izzy [Stradlin]'s not gonna show up and Axl will probably want to play with his hack band - his band of hacks. 'Axl and His Hacks' - it shouldn't even be Guns N' Roses. He's just driving that name into the freakin' ground. 'Axl and His Hacks'." Earlier today, Adler released the following statement to Blabbermouth.net: "Sometimes my emotions get the best of me when talking about my former band. It's hard to see your ex in bed with somebody else. We created one of the biggest-selling debut albums of all time and it's no secret that I want to finish what we started 25 years ago and play together at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. The guys that Axl has put together are all great players. They're not hacks in the sense that they can't play, they're all incredible musicians. I just meant that they are not the original lineup. I would like to apologize to Axl, Bumblefoot, D.J., Tommy, Dizzy, Richard, Frank, and Chris for my statement." Rose was ambivalent in a recent interview about the Hall Of Fame, and told Billboard.com in 2009 that he could never see himself playing with Slash again, saying, "One of the two of us will die before a reunion. However sad, ugly or unfortunate anyone views it, it is how it is." The 27th annual Hall Of Fame ceremony will be held on April 14. In addition to Guns N' Roses, other artists being inducted include the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Beastie Boys, the Faces/Small Faces, Donovan and Laura Nyro. The ceremony will be taped for broadcast by HBO, which plans to air it in early May.

    Alright, you know what? You're entitled to your opinion, that is your right. But at least stick to it. All you see these days is someone insulting someone else, and the day afterwards they immediately come out and apologize like they just killed their f*cking kids. Grow a pair and stick to it for once, damnit.

    Lol, i just call every other lineup that is not the clasic one "Axl and Friends". It seems to work out just fine and makes me laugh sometimes

    He had a point, you know... _ Funny how this summer both Slash and GnR will perform at the same festival in Belgium. First Slash will most likely play some of GnR's glorious anthems with different vocalists. Then Axl will do the same with a different GnR. Beside them, Ozzy & friends will play some good old Black Sabbath. The funeral of a musical era if you ask me.

    I always think of the current GNR lineup as simply Axl's solo career. He runs the band, he fires people and gets new people, and he is always performing songs from his old band. Ozzy does it too.

    Why did he apologize?! His description of the new line-up was 100% TRUE!!! UGH! I hate when celebs say something that's blatantly obvious, then issue an apology afterwards! Stick to your guns man! (no pun intended)

    I love how Adler bashing them was front page worthy and his apology wasn't. I wouldn't be sorry.. Axl and Friends is tarnishing a name, and music we all love.

    Seriously, if there was a GnR Reunion, would anyone actually care if Adler's Drumming? I'd still see it as THE reunion if Sorum would do it.

    I'm getting really tired of people making comments that they later apologize for. Stand by your original statement or don't say it at all!
