Steven Adler (ex-Guns N’ Roses) has announced that Constantine Maroulis (“American Idol”, “Rock Of Ages” fame) will be fronting the newly formed Adler’s Appetite. The band will be performing at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, CA on May 10, before heading out on an Australian tour. Summer festival appearances and a fall tour are being planned as well.
Maroulis told Billboard the following
“Of course, Guns N’ Roses was the soundtrack to my youth. To play with Steven has been the highlight of my career. He’s a lovely guy, and his playing on ‘Appetite [For Destruction]’ was second to none, and that sound he made on it defined that whole generation’s sound.”
Adler said the following about the singer:
“Let me just fucking tell you something… this guy Constantine, who I call ‘Casanova’… he came up to New York and I’m, like, ‘Oh my God, I got this great rock and roll singer!’ I’m finally working with a real superstar again. I call him ‘Casanova’ because he’s so goddamn sexy. Because he dresses so nice. I wish I was his size so I could double my wardrobe! … He flew up to New York and within five minutes, I wanted to kick his fuckin’ ass! And within 10 minutes, I fell in love with him!”
He also added:
“Guns N’ Roses are the biggest rock band in the fuckin’ world now, and since the guys don’t want me to play with them and I love these songs and I’m so proud of them … now I finally have a singer who can compete with the young Axl Rose. Axl is Axl and Casanova is fuckin’ Casanova…. That’s all I want. Also, his name isn’t ‘asshole’ it’s Axl. It sounds like you’re saying ‘asshole,’ but it’s Axl.”
