Steven Adler (born Michael Coletti, January 22, 1965) is an American musician. He is best known as the drummer and co-songwriter of the hard rock band Guns N' Roses during the late 1980s. He is the current drummer for the rock band Adler.

During his time in Guns N' Roses, Adler suffered from drug addiction. In 1990, the band fired Adler. He later rejoined the band after he signed a contract in which he promised to stop taking drugs.[1] He was fired from the band again on July 11, 1990, after his addiction left him unable to perform.[2]

Adler appeared on the second and fifth seasons of the reality television show Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew for his drug rehabilitation.[3] He also appeared on the first season of its spin-off show Sober House.[4]
