 AXL ROSE WAS AFRAID TO ASK HIM TO PLAY IN GUNS’N’ROSES

Some moments from his course of life >>

He founded his first band at his age of 14 in Seattle in 1977. The singer was Geoff Tate (Queensryche). Soon afterwards he signed his guitar with Eddie Van Halen, and got a 3 hours guitar lesson from him. At the end of it Van Halen remarked that “You do it better than Mick Ralphs of Bad Company.”

He was still just 17 when joined TKO. A year later in 1982 when the KISS looked for a new guitarist instead of the departured Ace Frehley, he went to audition. (There were such fellow candidates as Doug Aldrich (then 18, later: Dio, Whitesnake), Richie Sambora (then 23, later: Bon Jovi) and the 19 years old Yngwie J. Malmsteen. Finally Vinnie Vincent had been chosen.)

In the same year he moved to Hollywood. His roommate was Izzy Stradlin (yes, from the Guns’n’Roses, but in those days he was drummer in a punk band, Naughty Women). His stage name was supposed by the opposite room’s lodger, Tommy Thayer, who was in Black’n’Blue at that time, but today he is the guitarist of KISS.  It’s meaningful that in these days on two ocassions he substituted for guitar virtuoso Yngwie Malmsteen in his band, Steeler.

In 1984 he recorded his first solo album in Honolulu. His mates were: on guitar: Jimmy Crespo (Aerosmith), on bass: Phil Feit (Billy Idol) and Cliff  Williams (AC/DC), on drums: Chuck Ruff (Edgar Winter Group) and Gregg Gerson (Billy Idol, Iggy Pop, Mick Jagger) and Jerry Martini (Sly & The Family Stone) on sax. Since then he released 10 albums and took part in solo works of Michael Monroe of Finnish glam rock band, Hanoi Rocks.

1988. Adam spent ten weeks in Stockholm. He was playing every night at a bar with two ex-members of New York Dolls, the guitarist Johnny Thunders, and the drummer Jerry Nolan. They lived there in those days.

He began work on his 4th album in 1990 with such musicians as
– Mick Taylor (after Brian Jones’s death he was guitarist in The Rolling Stones between 69-74)
– Steve Stevens (guitar, Billy Idol, Robert Palmer, Michael Jackson, Juno Reactor)
– Nicky Hopkins (keyboard, Screaming Lord Sutch, Rolling Stones, Who, Kinks)
– Flo & Eddie (vocals, Frank Zappa, T-Rex, Alice Cooper, Blondie, Ramones)
– T.M. Stevens (bass, Shocka Zooloo, James Brown, Tina Turner, Steve Vai, 2 Pac).
His manager chose Jack Douglas (John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Aerosmith, Miles Davies, Cheap Trick, Patti Smith) as producer. He asked huge sum of money, what was spending for drugs & whores. Working with him was a nightmare. The album was almost finished, when the studio went bankrupt, and the records were lost. Those reappeared after 6 years. “A bitch called me and said if I want, she sells the tapes for me. We met a desolate warehouse in Brooklyn. It was exactly like in the Goodfellas. I had such feel that I will be arrested or shot at the next moment.” Finally the “New York Timeas” album was released in 2001.

1993. He was playing at The Loft in New York when Axl Rose walked in about half-way through a song and just started to sing with Adam. Axl told Adam that he and Izzy saw him play at the TKO gig in ’83 at the Troubadour in Hollywood. Axl recalled the way Adam moved on stage and remembered that they were going to ask Adam to join the band they were starting but thought Adam would have turned them down, so they never asked.

In 2000 Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones attended an Adam Bomb show in London, and was so impressed with his guitar playing that he invited him to record in his studio the following weekend. The result “Angry Angry” has been built around Adam Bomb’s solo. It was released on John Paul Jones’ Thunderthief album in 2001.
