A pair of former Guns n' Roses members made news today for completely different reasons. Guitarist Izzy Stradlin released his new solo album Concrete to iTunes. The 10-track album features Izzy's former Gn'R bandmate and current Velvet Revolver member Duff McKagan on the title track. On the flip side, Roses' drummer Steven Adler was arrested early this morning for possession of narcotics, being under the influence and having an outstanding warrant. Adler was arrested at 4 AM this morning after police received a call about a man creating a disturbance. The drummer was jailed on $45,000 bail. Adler, ironically enough, recently completed filming the second season of VH1's Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew, and was reportedly planning to star in a spin-off show called Sober Living. That show would have required Adler to live in a house with other recovering addicts as they attempted to resurrect their careers without drugs or alcohol. The second season of Celebrity Rehab won't air until October, so maybe we should have prefaced this post with "Spoiler Alert."
