Former Guns N' Roses drummer's plea to rejoin band

Steven Adler wants to hook up with the band after going to rehab

Former Guns N' Roses drummer's plea to rejoin band
Former Guns N' Roses drummer Steven Adler has pleaded no contest to a charge of heroin possession, indicating his desire to go to drug rehab instead of a jail sentence - and then rejoin his old band.

Adler entered the plea at the Lose Angeles Superior Court on Friday (November 14), reports Reuters, hoping that his indication to get clean would spare him jail.

The drummer's lawyer, Barry Gerald, claimed, "When he gets sober they'll (Guns N' Roses) accept him into the band and then they'll do a comeback album and a world tour - that's the dream of Steven Adler."

Adler was sacked from the band in 1990 because of his drug problems. He is scheduled to appear in court again on December 12 to find out whether his attempt to avoid jail will be successful.

The star was arrested in Los Angeles on July 18 after being accused of causing a disturbance.
