Axl Rose says no to Rock Hall of Fame! Yowsah!!!


Rose's open letter is printed in its entirety below.
To: The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, Guns N' Roses Fans and Whom It May Concern;

"That said, I won't be attending The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction 2012 Ceremony and I respectfully decline my induction as a member of Guns N' Roses to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame."

How do you feel about this? My favorite "That Metal Show" host Eddie Trunk said it best:  "Don't get all these people saying Axl denying Hall induction is a snub to his fans? You need a clueless club to tell you Guns is iconic??"

  1. Time to forget about the reunion dream for now & get behind what these guys are all doing now if you like it. They are all icons! - Geezy

  2. Axl is an icon. He doesn't need a cheesy award to prove it.

  3. Considering G&R is an active band (dispite few new releases) its still his band. Izzy periodically steps on stage with them and as far as I know, that's all the contact they have. The original lineup was great but that doest change the fact that they are a working band. I have to agree with Axle and say piss off to the hall of fame and the rest of the blokes. The fans can go to a G&R show when they come to town or keep listening to the old stuff.....cause the new stuff sucks. But i still take axles side. Maybe Slash should have tried to make peace if it meant so much to him
