Steven Adler Family
He was born Michael Coletti in Cleveland, Ohio, the son of an Italian-American father, Michael Coletti, and a Jewish American mother, Deanna. After his father left the family, his mother moved with her children to Los Angeles, California. Originally named after his father, he has then renamed Steven in adherence of Ashkenazi Jewish naming convention, which forbids children from being named after living people, and he later took on the surname Adler from his mother’s marriage to Melvin Adler. He has an older brother, Kenny, and a younger half-brother, Jamie.
Adler grew up in the San Fernando Valley until the age of 13, when he was sent to live with his grandparents in Hollywood due to his bad behavior. At Bancroft Junior High, Adler befriended Saul Hudson, later known as Slash; they met when Adler had a skateboarding accident and Slash stopped to help him. After ninth grade, Adler returned to his parents’ house in the Valley for the remainder of high school, during which time he learned to play drums.

Steven Adler Career
1985–1990: Guns N’ Roses
In June 1985, Adler joined Guns N’ Roses, which was newly founded by Axl Rose, Izzy Stradlin, and L.A. Guns members Tracii Guns, Ole Beich, and Rob Gardner. After their original drummer, Gardner quit. Adler and Slash joined their former Road Crew bandmate Duff McKagan (who joined in April 1985) to complete the line-up. They played nightclubs—such as the Whisky a Go Go, The Roxy, and The Troubadour—and opened for larger acts throughout 1985 and 1986. After being scouted by several major record labels, the band signed with Geffen Records in March 1986.
In July 1987, Guns N’ Roses released its debut album, Appetite for Destruction, which to date has sold over 28 million copies worldwide, 18 million of which were in the United States, making it the best-selling debut album of all time in the US. In December, during a tour with Alice Cooper, an intoxicated Adler broke his hand when he punched a streetlight after a barroom brawl; Fred Coury of Cinderella was brought in as his substitute for several shows until he recovered. In November 1988, Guns N’ Roses released G N’ R Lies, which sold over five million copies in the US alone, despite containing only eight tracks, four of which were included on the previously released EP Live ?!*@ Like a Suicide.
Adler was again absent during a performance at the American Music Awards in January 1989; Don Henley filled in for him on drums. His absence was originally attributed to a case of the flu, but it was later revealed that Adler had been in a drug rehabilitation program at the time. The following October, during a show as the opening act for The Rolling Stones, Axl Rose threatened to leave the band if certain members of the band didn’t stop “dancing with Mr. Brownstone,” a reference to their song of the same name about heroin use. Adler was among those who promised to clean up, but he continued to struggle with his addiction.
Adler was briefly fired from the band over his drug use in early 1990, but he was reinstated after signing a contract in which he vowed to stop taking drugs. However, by the time the band entered the studio to record the song “Civil War”, his addiction had become so severe that he was unable to perform. By Adler’s own admission, he tried to play the song “20, maybe 30 times.”The song’s drum track had to be heavily edited just for his bandmates to be able to play along with it. When problems in the studio continued, causing recording sessions to abort for several days at a time, Adler was formally fired from Guns N’ Roses on July 11, 1990. He had played his final show with the band on April 7 at Farm Aid IV.
Izzy Stradlin, who left the band in November 1991, later stated that replacing Adler with Matt Sorum of The Cult had a big impact on the band’s sound. In response to an interviewer’s suggestion that the line-up change had turned Guns N’ Roses from a rock ‘n’ roll band into a heavy metal one, Stradlin said, “Yeah, a big musical difference. … [Our songs] were written with Steve playing the drums and his sense of swing was the push and pull that give the songs their feel. When that was gone, it was just…unbelievable, weird. Nothing worked. I would have preferred to continue with Steve, but we’d had two years off and we couldn’t wait any longer.”

Steven Adler News
Steve Adler says that he is “alive and well,” less than a week after he was hospitalized for a self-inflicted stab wound.
The former GUNS N’ ROSES drummer addressed the incident in a video message posted to his Facebook page earlier today. In the clip, which can be seen below, Adler says: “I’m really sorry about all this media confusion that’s been going on. I’m alive and well. I’m looking forward to seeing everybody on July 12 at the Golden Nugget in [Las] Vegas and July 13 at this motorcycle rally in Oregon, which is gonna be bad to the bone. And I love everybody, and I can’t wait to see and hug everybody. Thank you so much for your love and support.”
On June 27, local authorities responded to a call shortly after 6:30 p.m. for a possible suicide attempt at Adler‘s Studio City, California, home.
A spokesperson at the Los Angeles Fire Department confirmed to People that they were called to the address for a possible stabbing and transported one patient to the local hospital via ambulance.
Steven was the drummer for GUNS N’ ROSES from 1985 to 1990. He was eventually fired from the band due to his drug addiction, which caused him to spiral down into depression and more drug use.
Adler‘s autobiography, “My Appetite for Destruction: Sex, and Drugs, and Guns N’ Roses”, came out in July 2010. In the book, Adler tells all, fearlessly addressing his struggles with heroin and crack addiction; his financial ruin after being kicked out of GN’R; his shattered marriage; and the severe health problems that nearly claimed his life on several occasions.
GUNS N’ ROSES was inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in 2012. Adler, guitarist Slash and bassist Duff McKagan attended the ceremony, while singer Axl Rose and founding guitarist Izzy Stradlin stayed home.
