GN'R Confirm Hall Of Fame Attendance
13
The original Guns N' Roses lineup will attend the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony after all - but will they perform? "I know that all the original band is going to be there," said keyboardist Dizzy Reed in an interview with Billboard. "I don't know exactly what's going to go down. It's one of those things I'm sure will all come together and be really cool. I'm just going to go in with a good attitude and a clear head and a grateful heart." While Dizzy can't promise a performance, his confirmation that they will attend is the strongest suggestion so far that they will perform after all. GN'R were confirmed for their induction into the Hall of Fame last December, which bands are only eligible for 25 years after releasing their first record. It left fans hungry for a reunion of their early lineup, but unresolved tension between members - particularly Axl Rose and Slash - meant a stage reunion was uncertain. Dizzy Reed said the band are yet to discuss any potential performance, but only because it's a touchy topic to mention: "I don't know when or why or how to bring it up. It's not an every day sort of thing. So we haven't really talked about it - but I'm sure we'll have to at some point." Meanwhile, the modern GN'R lineup continues to prepare for a European tour of arenas and festivals from May - and they might even return to the studio to work on a follow-up to 2008's "Chinese Democracy". "There are some clamoring and rumors that we might be getting some material together" Reed said. "There was so much material that didn't make it onto ['Chinese Democracy']. From what I remember there were a lot of really cool songs; I can only hope that some of that stuff does resurface and get worked out."

    If Slash and Axl saw each other again, I'm sure there would be the same kind of embrace as when Axl and Duff saw each other again for the first time in years. Or they'll knock 7 bells out of each other.

    WTF does Dizzy Reed have to say about it? He's not an original member of GnR. He was hired and paid a salary out of pitty.

    If David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen could reunite.....then Axl and Slash can! (Hopefully!!!)

    This is going to be so chaotic, theres going to be like 20 people on stage, with the original line up, then the use your illusion guys, and the late 90's guys, and the current lineup. Pure chaos.

    i thought that all the members of a band that played on a record were introduced to the RHoF... that means all of the 58 people that played on Chinese Democracy has to be introduced sorry for my english

    today in celebrity death match! Slash and Axl Rose!!! just kidding. this will be really cool to see. now the next question is...will john frusciante be with the chili peppers in the induction? one of these interviewers needs to find his ass and ask him hahahaha.

    "While Dizzy can't promise a performance, his confirmation that they will attend is the strongest suggestion so far that they will perform after all" WTF? All he said was that everyone is going to be there. How does that even remotely suggest that they will perform after all?

    Great new that they'll be there, even better if they jam. The Oscar-winning moment would be an onstage reconciliation with Axl and Slash.

    I swear on That Metal Show, Slash said he would definitely attend? Anyway if they do all attend and even if they didn't perform, I'm sure a lot of people would be happy just to see Slash and Axl in the same room being civilised with one another.

    I'm a huuuuge GN'R fan, and even though he's credited as being in the band and is included in the band photo in the UYI sleeves, Dizzy Reed will never, in my eyes, be a member of GN'R.

    Make sure to tell Axl the ceremony is a couple of hours earlier than it actually is

    It would be awesome to see them all together again, but it will also probably be short lived unfortunatly. Would be absolutley immense if they perform a couple of songs!
    HARTATTACK69
    It;s a Start, just keep Axl and Slash on opposite sides of the stage. Who knows maybe it'll re-spark something and they'll all want to play with each other again

    I personally hope for 1 of 2 things..either they play together and everything goes great and then world tour orrrrr.....they all get on stage and perform at the induction and fight on stage cuz that would be epic

    I reserve that if they get back together I will run naked through Downtown Toronto playing Sweet Child O' Mine on a portable backpack amp... I'll FUCKIN DO IT!!!!!

    I've got a feeling this induction ceremony is going to be like an episode of Jerry Springer...

    Obviously i would want them to perform but just to see all of them together is a huge thing .I hope it goes well . Respect!

    he's the dude who was the longest in the band besides Axl?

    I can't imagine there will be a performance or any kind of reunion with the original guys. For one night they'll bear to be in the same room as each other, Axl and Slash won't speak and that'll be that.

    The original lineup minus Axl will show up and accept the award graciously, and 3 hours later Axl will show up completely hammered and slur through Welcome to the Jungle with the new lineup.

    Tomorrow's headline: Axl denies GN'R Hall Of Fame Attendance. Corey Taylor will sing with the original GN'R lineup for Hall Of Fame induction.

    I never heard him say that. Actually, I've heard him say that he would definitely be there. Maybe what you're thinking of is when the RnR HoF guy was going around telling everybody a few months ago that all of the original members had RSVP'ed. Slash said that he didn't need anyone to speak for him and that he most certainly had not confirmed his reservation. He never said that he wasn't going; he just said that he hadn't confirmed it and that that guy was full of shit. Since then, however, he has stated that he is going.

    Dizzy played on the Use Your Illusion records. AKA, the two with some of their biggest hits.

    Can't wait to hear their next album. I'm going to make a bold move and predict, right here and now, that it is going to be the album of the year for 2021.
