In an open letter last week, Axl Rose made himself perfectly clear: he didn't feel "wanted or respected" by his former Guns N' Roses bandmates, so not only would he skip the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, he didn't want to be inducted at all.
A couple names you may recognize said the decision was a mistake, and the crowd on Saturday night made their feelings known as well.
Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day inducted Guns N' Roses into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last night (April 14) with a stirring speech which proved that he was indeed a good choice for the gig. We were there and we've got the complete transcript for your reading enjoyment.
You don't often hear of artists refusing to be inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame, but Axl Rose, who did just that with a much-publicized open letter yesterday, is not the first to turn up his nose at this exclusive offer.
In the harrowing saga regarding the on-again, off-again induction of Guns N’ Roses into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at this weekend’s ceremony, the Hall of Fame has cast the final word, at least for now.
Axl Rose has made it quite clear that not only will he not be reuniting with any former members of Guns N' Roses at this weekend's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, he won't be attending at all and he'd prefer if everyone leaves him and his name out of the induction plans altogether.
Well, we knew it wouldn't last. The news of the rumored romance between Axl Rose and Lana Del Rey had barely reached the entire Internet before it got quashed by Guns N' Roses guitarist DJ Ashba. A reporter for TMZ spoke to Asbha while he was walking hand-in-hand with a young woman and a large man (presumably a bodyguard) down a Los Angeles street and asked him if he had any information to give.
