Ex-Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler ran into fellow former GNR drummer Matt Sorum, and the pair got along very well.

Adler wrote on Facebook, “Had an AMAZING time at Foreigner!!! Wonderful seeing my brother Jeff Pilson kicking ass!!! Ran into some friends too!”

He also wrote, “MATT!!!”

Adler thinks Frank Ferrer and Slash recorded new parts for the recent “Shadow Of Your Love” single.

He told WRIF in a recent interview that Alternative Nation transcribed, “We recorded that song, that song is not the same song we recorded. When we recorded Shadow Of Your Love, we recorded it when we did the EP Live Like A Suicide. If you’re listening to it, that’s not me playing drums on it. The guitar has obviously been put in, because it sounds newer.

The vocals, the bass, the rhythm guitar, that’s from 1985, but the drums, that’s not me playing. I know how I play, and that’s not the same guitar solo. You can hear it, it sounds brand new. Half the song sounds really old, and the drums and lead guitar sound new. They have better equipment nowadays, and we did that demo for 300 dollars. It sounds different.”

“This was 1985, in 1985 we did the Live Like A Suicide. I really don’t think that’s me playing, because if you listen to Live Like A Suicide, the drums sound completely different to Shadow Of Your Love. The guitar sounds completely different, it sounds like it’s been added in there, with better technology than we were using on that 300 dollar demo tape.”

    I have no idea what Steven’s talking about (as usual) but “Shadow of Your Love” kicks ass! I don’t care if it’s 30 years old. It’s harder and better than most of the crap out there.
