It describes a daunting list of abuse starting when Steven skipped school and began doing drugs only 11 years old, eventually resulting in 28 overdoses, three suicide attempts, two heart attacks and a stroke.
According to the drummer, his book isnít just an attempt to cash in on juicy rock \'n roll stories. He claims its primary goal was therapeutic. After being booted from the band, he spiraled down into depression and more drug use.
Steven Adler recently finished a stint in reality television on VH1\'s Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew, and Sober House.
His current sobriety has helped him repair some of his relationships with his ex-Guns n\' Roses band mates. Slash has been supportive of Stevenís recovery and invited the drummer to play on a track on his recent solo album.
After so much life wasted, Steven Adler now wants to work. Heís started a 50-city tour with his band Adlerís Appetite, playing \'Appetite for Destruction\' in its entirety along with other G ní R hits.
Steven also hopes to release a new studio album next year.
