In an article/interview found on [MusicRadar](http://www.musicradar.com/news/drums/interview-steven-adler-talks-guns-n-roses-drums-drugs-and-his-new-band-565365/#null), Steven Adler says: "I just recently signed up with Ludwig. I am so excited – I feel as though all the work and practice is starting to pay off. I'm playing the Ludwig Classic Maple kit, and I can't wait – they're making me a kit right now, and I can't wait till it gets here. I use Vater sticks and Paiste cymbals. Basically, I'm turning into John Bonham." [Laughs]more
