Guns 'N Roses
Great news for Guns ‘N Roses fans…sort of. After a series of questions during a press event for his upcoming solo album, former G’N R lead guitarist said he “would love to play” at this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony.
Considering all but one former bandmate has publicly stated the same, it seems more and more likely that one Axl Rose is the only thing keeping the reunion gig from actually happening.
“It's just, one of those things where I know that it's not going to happen, so… I just did an interview and said, 'I don't think we're playing,'” Said the guitarist. “I mean I think it would be cool to play, but very early on when the whole thing came up, it became apparent that it wasn't going to happen — and you know, that doesn't surprise me. We've been at odds for… well, not at odds, but we just haven't had any sort of communication in a long time so… that's basically it. That's all I can tell you."
During an interview with the Los Angeles Times last December, Axl Rose stated that he’s “got mixed emotions about what the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame actually really is, but at the same time, there's a lot of people — the fans — that it just means something to them, and they're happy. It's like you won the Heisman or something,”
The Rock in Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony will take place Saturday, April 14, in Cleveland, Ohio, with or without a Guns ‘N Roses gig.
