Steven Adler reveals GNR secrets and drug addiction tale.

When Steven Adler was a kid, he told his friends that he was going to be in the biggest rock and roll band in the world. It's reported that age 12, he befriended Slash, and a decade later Slash and Adler were ruling the entertainment world with Axl Rose and Duff McKagan in Guns N' Roses. Adler's humiliating firing, however, rocked his personal world, and on Tuesday morning he and Howard Stern hashed out the history of Guns N' Roses.

Steven Adler appeared on Howard Stern Tuesday morning and premiered a new song, but his new book is clearly the main topic of conversation as he spills everything on what led to the fall of Guns N' Roses who, in the late 1980s, were the biggest and most controversial band in the world.

The US Post Today reports that Adler's new book, My Appetite For Destruction, dishes on "Slash's betrayal, Axl's unpredictable temper, and Duff's revenge. He bares it all with this shocking f*ck-the-fates exposÉ that charts his meteoric rise and devastating collapse."

Axl Rose kicked Steven Adler out of the band -- on the air on MTV. It's said that Adler spiraled into severe depression, seclusion and substance abuse, suffering a debilitating addiction to heroin and cocaine. Adler's drug use is thought to have contributed to the two strokes he's suffered, and he now speaks with a speech impediment as a result of the second.

Steven Adler credits Dr. Drew Pinsky with helping him finally kick his drug addiction, and he tells the story of his rise, fall and facing reality in My Appetite For Destruction. Adler's book went on sale Tuesday, July 27 and is being called a "must-read" for Guns N' Roses fans.
