GN'R Officially Set For Hall Of Fame
Guns N' Roses will officially be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in April, sparking rumours that the original lineup will take to the stage to perform for the first time in years. Other major artists to be inducted include the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys and the Small Faces. "It's a great honor," former guitarist Gilby Clarke told The Plain Dealer (via Blabbermouth). "The band deserves it. It was a long time coming." It might have felt like a long time coming, but acts only become eligible for the ceremony 25 years after the release of their first album - meaning Gn'R have become eligible at the first opportunity, unlike many other historic artists. It took Alice Cooper years, though he was finally inducted this year. Other major acts like Kiss have never been nominated. The band still performs live, but the only original member in the current lineup is frontman Axl Rose. He is on friendly terms with guitarist Izzy Stradlin and bass player Duff McKagan, but is said to still be at odds with guitarist Slash. Tension between the pair could prevent the original line up appearing together on stage. Drummer Steven Adler told Rolling Stone that Axl is unlikely to forgive and forget. "You figure that time heals all wounds," Adler said. "But some people just REALLY hold a crazy grudge. I just had lunch with Slash two days ago. He loves Axl. He holds no grudges towards him." Meanwhile, the current lineup performed the song "Civil War" for the first time since 1993 as part of their current North American tour. Watch a clip of the performance here.
