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.”
During an interview on the “Australian Rock Show” podcast, Steven Adler (ex-Guns N’ Roses) said him and his band Adler’s Appetite are “gonna try” to record a new song before their upcoming Australian tour.
