the original and ONLY true GNR drummer. Mops the floor with his replacement Matt Sorum in terms of style, swing, feel, groove, creativity, and any other non-technical category. One of the most unique drummers of all-time.

The drummer for guns n' roses on Appetite for Destruction and Gn'R Lies. He wasn't a great drummer, but his style worked for the band. He was a big partier, and was kicked out during recording for Use Your Illusion 1 and 2 when his bandmates realized he was too drugged-up to play, and was replaced by matt sorum. The only song he contributed to use your illusion was "Civil War." He kept using drugs until a massive stroke which left his speech slurred. He now drums for his band Adler's Appetite. He has also sued former band members, like every other gunner.
It is believed that "The Spaghetti Incident?"'s title is inspired by a spaghetti fight that took place between Matt Sorum and Steven Adler.

The only original member of Guns N' Roses not to have a definition. (Before you say Izzy Stradlin, look up "Izzy").
Though he was a shit drummer (Never had a drumming lesson, didn't own an actual drumkit till he was 18), he still deserves some recognition
