Matt Sorum has revealed that he and Slash may yet play live at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame even though Guns N' Roses won't be performing.

Talking to VH1 Radio Network, the drummer says that he's offered his services to Donovan who, like GN'R, will be inducted into the Hall Of Fame in Cleveland on April 14.

"I might play drums with Donovan. I offered my services to Donovan, because I played with him one time before, and 'Hurdy Gurdy Man' was a song he recorded that John Bonham played drums on and Jimmy Page was the guitar player. I offered Donovan that me and Slash could play that maybe, but I haven't heard back if he wants us to do it or not."

Sorum also said he asked Slash if he'd call Axl and find out what the unpredictable singer is planning to do at the ceremony.

"Slash's answer to me was that he spoke to Izzy [Stradlin], and Izzy wasn't planning on coming. So I think that was like, if Izzy's not going to come and it's not all the original guys, then it doesn't make sense."

    Can't they just man the hell up, play once more for the fans, then put the band to bed and let Axl carry on doing his thing, then everyone else can go back doing their owns things.

    Am I the only one who has just a little bit of hope that Guns is just screwing with us and is planning to reunite? Am I just being naive?

    True enough eh. He makes it sound like he is. He was still an important part of the band, but definitely not an original member.

    Maybe just maybe they are planning to perform but due to the likely hood of someone going up and not wanting to play they are saying they won't play? That way if they don't perform they can always say that they had been saying it since the get go

    Honestly, Izzy and Slash defined the GNR sound and they should be there. Hate me for saying that all you want, but they both had elements that just oozed through making GNR different from every other band
