Adler’s Appetite, the band led by former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler — has finished recording and mixing its new single, “Alive”, with longtime friend and producer Anthony Focx (Vince Neil, Buckcherry). The group is planning on debuting the song live as part of its summer tour, which will kick off Friday, July 9 in Redondo Beach, California.
“We are really excited to be moving forward with original material,” says Adler’s Appetite guitarist Alex Grossi. “I think people are really going to like the direction we are going in.”
The band — which includes guitarists Alex Grossi (ex-Quiet Riot) and Michael Thomas (Faster Pussycat), bassist Chip Z’nuff (Enuff Znuff) and vocalist Rick Stitch (Ladyjack) — plans to release the song worldwide in conjunction with Adler’s tell-all biography, “My Appetite For Destruction: Sex, Drugs & Guns N’ Roses”, which is set for a July 27 release through HarperCollins.
Steven Adler will sign copies of his tell-all biography, “My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N’ Roses”, at Bookends in Ridgewood, New Jersey on Wednesday, July 28 at noon.

Friday night Adler’s Appetite came to Cincinnati’s Riverstar Entertainment Complex to unleash their renditions of Guns N’ Roses awesome tunes. The band features former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler, Chip Z’nuff (Enuff Z’nuff) on bass, Rick Stitch (Ladyjack) on vocals, Michael Thomas (Faster Pussycat) and Alex Grossi (Quiet Riot) on guitar.
Local bands The Mighty Swine, and A Nervous Wreck opened the show. The Mighty Swine played a cool set of original tunes. A Nervous Wreck did a good job getting the crowd revved up with a bunch of cover tunes from the bands Poison, Ratt, L.A. Guns and more.
Adler’s Appetite hit the stage about 11:oo P.M. and played a great set of tunes covering the Guns N’ Roses albums, “Appetite for Destruction”, as well as the “Use Your Illusion” albums.
Rick Stitch may not be Axl Rose, but he did a good job signing these songs. I was pretty impressed with the guitar tandem of Alex Grossi and Michael Thomas as well. Adler’s Appetite may not be anything more than a glorified cover band, but at least Steven Adler is trying to keep the Guns N’ Roses music alive and well. Until Axl Rose gets his head out of his ass and reunites the class G N’ R linuep, this is as good as it gets!
