Mexico: Former Guns N’ Roses drummer falls ill during live performance.
Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler fell ill during a live performance in Mexico City and was treated by paramedics at the scene, a Red Cross spokeswoman said Thursday. The spokeswoman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Adler was not hospitalized after the Red Cross treated him. She didn’t know why the drummer had gotten sick. Adler was in Mexico with the band Adler’s Appetite on a tour commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Guns N’ Roses album "Appetite for Destruction." Initial news reports saying Adler suffered from hypertension could not be confirmed. The general manager at Hard Rock Live, the venue where the concert took place, did not return phone calls from The AP. The other members of the hard-rock band threw Adler out in 1989, saying his drug use was harming his performance. In 1993, the band agreed to pay him US$2.3 million (euro1.6 million) to settle Adler’s lawsuit claiming a 1990 agreement by which he gave up his interest in the band was read to him and signed without his attorney present.
According to various members websites, indluding AA guitar player Michael Thomas’ MySpace - Adlers Appetite is in Mexcio and has been doing several South American dates in recent weeks.
