    This is gonna be a mess. :hhh:

    Axl Rose sent a "Thanks, but no thanks" letter to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for its induction of Guns N' Roses in Cleveland next weekend.

    Bad blood between Rose and several former band mates from the original 1985 lineup is apparently at the center of his decision.

    The Guns N' Roses lead singer wrote that after being "polite, courteous and open to an amicable solution," he concluded that the induction ceremony "doesn't appear to be somewhere I'm actually wanted or respected."

    "Of course I realized as things stood, if Guns N' Roses were to be inducted it'd be somewhat of a complicated or awkward situation," said Rose, who tours with a version of the group that includes none of the original members from 1985.

    Rose expressed frustration with what he called "a seemingly endless amount of revisionism and fantasies" from former bandmates "for the sake of self-promotion and business opportunities masking the actual realities."

    He singled out original drummer Steven Adler for giving "interviews filled with reunion lies" five years ago.

    "Until every single one of those generating from or originating with the earlier lineups has been brought out in the light, there isn't room to consider a conversation let alone a reunion," he wrote.

    And don't even try to induct him into the hall without his approval, he wrote.

    I agree with you 100%. But since they will be inducted, might as well enjoy the mess.

    They were pretty good, but talk about a band self-destructing.

    I think the Hall Of Fame only set this up hoping that it would make GNR have a reunion. Really they are still too recent to be in the Hall Of Fame

    GnR's Appetite for Destruction is still one of rock's all time greatest albums. Sad thing is they became eligible and voted in the first year they were eligible just because the HOF wants to say "we reunited them"

    Alice Cooper just got in. Groups that haven't got in the HOF:

    Rush
    Kiss
    Deep Purple
    Cheap Trick
    Bad Company
    Peter Frampton
    Cars
    Dick Dale


    Fuck the hall of fame. Axl might be a prick but good for him snubbing them. Tell them to stick it up their ass.

    They have to have started something like at least 25 years ago to make it to the hall

    I'm surprised he's letting them use the Guns n Roses name.

    EDIT: Rush, Kiss and the cars all suck.

    And really, the RnR HOF had a display of Britney Spears stage outfits in it. Its credibility is non existent.

    I knew a guy that was a Roadie in the music business for years. He was a Roadie for all kinds of different bands including Prince, Motley Crue, Dokken, the list is long. And he says the biggest asshole he has ever met in not only in the business but in life is Axl Rose. His words not mine.

    First off, the HOF is a joke.

    A worthless 2 minutes blurb on MTV news (is that still around?).

    Its nothing to help with promotions or garner more sales for a group or individual.

    Its just another night to get drunk and fight with bandmates who hate each other.

    GnR had one great album at the tail end of the 80s.

    Everything else was bloated shit and reworked garbage.

    The dude with the stupid hat was the only one with talent to begin with.

    TY and enjoy the induction ceremony. :coffee:

    The formed in 85 and put out Appetite in 87. They broke up in 93 I believe. That's almost 20 years since they broke up.
