Perhaps realizing that compared to his stint as the drummer for Guns N’ Roses, any living situation would be seemingly sane, Steven Adler has reportedly signed on to be a member of the C-list petri dish The Surreal Life. If the reports from Metal Sludge are correct, Adler will be sharing screen time with Coolio, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Nicole Eggert, Lorenzo Lamas, porn star Kobe Tai and “an as-yet-unidentified seventh member.” Given VH1′s tendencies toward using Surreal as an ever-full well from which to draw other reality-show programming, is it too much to hope that the seventh member possess a connection to Adler, a three-letter first name–and an album that he just has to finish? Given the pace at which he works, after all, VH1 should be able to sustain its programming for at least seven or eight seasons.
