ADLER, the band led by former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler, was interviewed by Perú21 prior to its July 23 concert in Lima, Peru. You can now watch the chat below.

Asked how he feels about the fact that most people remember him as the "one and only" drummer of Guns N' Roses, Adler replied: [It's] 'cause I am." He added: "Do you know the name of the drummer who's in Guns N' Roses now? See, neither do I. Nobody knows. I only found out Matt Sorum's name last week, 'cause he called me up. [Laughs] I'm kidding. I love you, Matt."

Adler also spoke about Guns N' Roses' reputation as a hard-partying band which fully embraced the "sex, drugs and rock and roll" clichés of the 1980s. He said: "It was a lifestyle. Because when we were growing up, the bands that we looked up to and that we loved, that's what they did. They didn't have 'Behind The Music' [television specials], like they have now, where you hear the musicians that we grew up with saying how they missed shows, how they were sick, [about] all the rehabs they had to go in. It was kind of something that, 'Hey, if you wanna be a rock star, that's what you do.' But it was a complete misconception, because rock and roll is so much more fun and exciting when you're all there [points to his head]. But, at first, when you're young, you're a teenager, you're shy, you're trying to find yourself and figure out who you are as a person, and you wanna fit in, and you have a couple of drinks, and, all of a sudden, you can talk to girls. But that's where it gets you. At first, it's, like, 'Oh, I can talk to girls. I can be sociable.' But then it gets ahold of you and it completely takes over your life and it's just a waste of time. I wasted twenty years doing that, and I wish I could get that time back, but I can't. The only thing I can do is live for today the best that I can."
