Steven Adler’s New Band Debuts Acoustic Performance Video of ‘Waterfall’
Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler and his new band Adler — which includes ex-Lynam vocalist Jacob Bunton, guitarist Lonny Paul (Adler’s Appetite) and bassist Johnny Martin — have recorded an AOL Noisecreep acoustic session, and the video performance of the song ‘Waterfall’ is now available.
Adler has been working on their debut CD with producers Jeff Pilson (Dokken, Foreigner) and Jay Ruston (Anthrax) in Los Angeles. Among the guests on the album is Slash, Adler’s former Guns N’ Roses bandmate. The two performed together over the weekend at the the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. Slash, Adler, Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum and Gilby Clarke did three songs with Alter Bridge‘s Myles Kennedy on vocals.
In a recent Loudwire interview, when asked about the musical direction of the band, Adler said, “They can expect in-your-face rock’ n’ roll, something that the world needs. The world hasn’t had a great rock’ n’ roll band since what the Foo Fighters ’95. The world needs a good rock ‘n‘ roll band and we’re just the guys to give it to them. We are gonna crush souls and destroy dreams [Laughs]. “
Bunton added that the album is being recorded the old-fashioned way. “We’re making it the way a rock ‘n’ roll record should be made. We’re going in [and] we’re not relying on machines and autotune and computers to fix everything. If we make a mistake while we’re playing, we leave it in because that’s the human element, it’s the human factor. We’re just trying to make an honest… we’re not trying, we did. We made an honest sounding rock ‘n’ roll record played by human beings, not machines, and we’re all so proud. We couldn’t be prouder of the record that we’ve just made.”
The song ‘The One That You Hated‘ from the band’s still-untitled upcoming album is also available.
