Former Guns N’ Roses Drummer Steven Adler Celebrates Nine Months of Sobriety

It’s been a long journey, but there’s good news for fans of former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler.┬áThe musician reveals that he’s currently nine months sober and anxious to reach a year before getting back to work.

Adler has a well-documented history of drug use and addiction, famously being booted from Guns N’ Roses in 1990 for his troubles with excess. His current eponymous band, Adler, released an album called ‘Back From the Dead’ in 2012, but Steven canceled all of the band’s tour dates while checking himself into rehab in May 2013.

The drummer recently spoke with the Lucas H. Gordon Show (seen in the video above) about his sobriety, revealing, “Right now, I’m just taking care of myself. I’ve been having these problems with alcohol and I’m taking care of it. I have a nice program I’m working and I’m looking forward to having one year. Then next year, I’m going to start work and get the band back together.”

“I’m looking forward to going out and playing again,” continued Adler. “You know, it’s just been pretty exciting. Having a new life is exciting.”
