Guns N’ Roses Release Appetite For Destruction 30th Anniversary Material, Are Adler & Stradlin Included?


Guns N’ Roses are beginning the celebration of the 30th anniversary of their debut album Appetite for Destruction. The band are offering 30th anniversary merchandise to their ‘Nightrain’ fan club members.

Steven Adler and Izzy Stradlin are still featured on album cover memorabilia, but as seen below, only current members Axl Rose, Slash, and Duff McKagan are receiving individual merchandise.

Steven Adler also revealed the plan he proposed for the 30th anniversary of Appetite for Destruction in a February 2017 interview with Mitch Lafon.

“I asked Slash if he would talk to Axl about that. Like in July it’s 30 years since Appetite came out. I was thinking why don’t we just do like 4 or 5 shows at the Hollywood Bowl, play Appetite from beginning to end, throw in ‘Civil War’ and something like ‘Patience.’ Record it, videotape it, that’s it, if that’s all you want to do. If Axl is happy after that, we could do more. But I thought that would be really cool, but that’s my idea. If it was up to me, it would be a different story.”

Adler had nothing but good things to say about Axl Rose as a performer.

“Axl fuckin rules, are you kidding me? He’s a fuckin’ rock god. His lyrics, how many people can put their feelings into words, and it’s so profound? Robert Plant, Steven Tyler back in the day, but Axl Rose is the main man of rock singing, and I love him.”
