Guns N’ Roses: Steven Adler comments on stabbing incident

Former Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler is sharing his first public comments on a self-inflicted stab wound he suffered in his Los Angeles home on June 27.

"I'm really sorry about all this media confusion that's been going on,” says Adler in a new video shared on social media. “I'm alive and well. I'm looking forward to seeing everybody on July 12 at the Golden Nugget in [Las] Vegas and July 13 at this motorcycle rally in Oregon, which is gonna be bad to the bone.

“And I love everybody, and I can't wait to see and hug everybody. Thank you so much for your love and support."

The Los Angeles Police Department previously confirmed that local authorities responded to a 911 call shortly after 6:30 PM on June 27, issuing a statement that “there was no crime and the incident was being treated as a medical emergency only,” while adding, “the subject was transported to a local hospital with a non-life-threatening injury.”

In the days following the incident, an unnamed spokesperson for Adler described a "very minor, superficial wound" as an accident and not a suicide attempt.

A member of Guns N’ Roses from 1985 to 1990, Adler and the band’s classic lineup were inducted into the Rock And Roll Of Fame in 2012.
