According to the Mexican newspaper El Universal, former GUNS N' ROSES drummer Steven Adler fell ill during a live performance in Mexico City Wednesday night (September 19) and was treated by paramedics at the scene, a Red Cross spokeswoman told The Associated Press. The spokeswoman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Adler was not hospitalized after the Red Cross treated him. She didn't know why the drummer had gotten sick.

Adler was in Mexico with the band ADLER'S APPETITE on a tour commemorating the 20th anniversary of the GUNS N' ROSES album "Appetite for Destruction". Initial news reports saying Adler suffered from hypertension could not be confirmed. The general manager at Hard Rock Live, the venue where the concert took place, did not return phone calls from The Associated Press.

The other members of GUNS N' ROSES band threw Adler out in 1989, saying his drug use was harming his performance. In 1993, the band agreed to pay him $2.3 million to settle Adler's lawsuit claiming a 1990 agreement by which he gave up his interest in the band was read to him and signed without his attorney present.

Dude I love steven, he really added a dance grove on appetite with the cowbell and stuff but hes gotta stop living in the past. The man lives off this one album when he didnt write not one damn note on it. Furthermore, the old gunners are just being nice and supportive of his efforts on trying to put the original gunners back together. It aint going to happen. Geez every week its something about steven still holding out hope. Just stop dude. regardless of all this the current guns kick a$$ man. robin finck is the sh**!! i really dont want the old guns to reunite anytime soon. Im really into the music they have made and thier stage presence so i could care less for a reunion honestly. slash still writes old a$$ guitar riffs, this new guns is like a modern band that is influenced heavy on gnr. and that is a great thing. peace out b*tches.
