Slash was keen to set the record straight regarding his forthcoming Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction alongside Guns N' Roses.
He publicly responded to comments made by Joel Peresman, president of the Hall Of Fame Foundation, who said in an interview that the full band had confirmed their attendance.
Rock presenter Eddie Trunk, who conducted the interview with Peresman, confirmed the quote over twitter. It wasn't long before Slash took to the microblogging service and added some clarity to his position:
For the record, I didn't RSVP, or in any way commit to attending the RRHF. I don't appreciate people putting words in my mouth. Iii|; )'

It sounds like the members of Gn'R are keeping some distance before making commitments, though a full reunion of the early 1990s lineup appears increasingly unlikely.
Eddie Trunk now appears to be just as skeptical. In a later tweet, he proposed his own theory:
Here's my prediction; current GnR on tour at time of ceremony and at the most a recorded video thank you from Axl. Just a guess, we will see

Trunk adds that he remembers Axl Rose making a point in his most recent interview that he plans on touring all next year.
Do you think the members are playing games, or will they really end up making history and perform together on the big night? Share your theories in the comments.
