Former Guns N’ Roses Drummer Steven Adler Hospitalized: Was the Wound Self-Inflicted?
Hard rock band Guns N’ Roses’ heyday has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean their legacy has vanished.
The group simply makes it hard for different generations to forget them and more so not to know their songs because they have impacted the music industry big time.
Under their belt are impressive feats, so much so that they became a Rock & Roll Hall of Famer, inducted in 2012, but the praises were usually trampled by controversies about their ways and onstage antics.
Of late, however, Guns N’ Roses, which was formed in 1985 and was known for being unpredictable in their performances, made a buzz once more but not for their songs, but because of a serious health scare.
Specifically, it was drummer Steven Adler, whose name popped up because he allegedly attempted to take his own life.
According to Officer Mike Lopez, the Los Angeles Police Department didn’t see any crime that happened at the famed musician’s house when the authorities arrived past 6:30 p.m., instead, they dismissed the case as a medical emergency.
A Los Angeles Fire Department spokesperson seconded the statement, explaining that they were tapped for a possible stabbing and that they took the person with a “non-life-threatening injury” at the hospital.
According to TMZ, which was the first to report the incident, paramedics found Steven with a stab wound on his abdomen although no other parties were involved.
‘Very Minor’ Wound
Because this was the case, a lot of people saw this as the 54-year-old’s attempt to take his own life. However, his representative said there was no truth in that because this was purely an accident.
Furthermore, the official described the wound as “very minor” and “superficial,” and, in fact, it was not that serious because Steven will not cancel his July 12 gig at Golden Nugget in Las Vegas.
Prior to this accident, Steven showcased his musical prowess in Biloxi, Mississippi, and, with his new band, Adler’s Appetite, performed in Houston, Texas’ Warehouse Live.
Kicked Out of the Band
Steven joined the famous band, whose founders were L.A. Guns members Ole Beich, Rob Gardner, and Tracii Guns, and Izzy Stradlin and Axl Rose, in 1985 and he quite enjoyed some of the successes of the group albeit his time was cut too short.
Two years after, their “Appetite for Destruction” debut album came out, selling 28 million copies all over the world.
While Steven may be popularly known as part of the famous rock band, his stint as the drummer of Guns N’ Roses was quite short.
By 1987, his raucous behavior prompted the group to replace him for the tour because he broke his hand in a fight. Two years later, he was noticeably missing at the American Music Awards reportedly because of flu, but later on, outlets would reveal that he was in a rehabilitation program.
In 1990, his career with the group abruptly ended when other members agreed to remove him from the team because of substance abuse. Steven rejoined the group after promising that he would stop his bad habits, although in the same year, he was kicked out again.
