Guns ‘n’ Roses refused Hall Of Fame by Axl Rose
DESPITE being one of the lousiest rock bands in the history of human ears, Guns ‘n’ Roses had been invited to be part of the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall Of Fame. That’d be the GnFR being invited ahead of proper metal bands who influenced many, like Motorhead, Def Leppard and Iron Maiden. Not some basketball boot wearing, lycra cycling short having, pompous shagsack like Axl Rose preening over pedestrian, noodly pop-metal.
Of course, GNR all hate each other, mainly because Axl Rose is one of the most unpleasant humans on the planet (especially in his plastic-surgery goatee and cornrows years) and Slash, all big and tough, probably still cries himself to sleep when he thinks of the things Rose said to him when the band was falling to pieces.
This, naturally, is problematic if you’re being willed back together to appear once last time, at the induction of your spot in the Rock ‘N’ Roll Hall Of Fame. That’s possibly why it now won’t be happening after Axl Rose says he will not attend and is declining his induction into the hall.
Organisers should OBVIOUSLY give the vacant slot to Kraftwerk.
Anyway, in a letter to the hall, Rose said he would not be at the ceremony and would avoid what would have probably been a “complicated or awkward situation”.
“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. I strongly request that I not be inducted in absentia and please know that no-one is authorised nor may anyone be permitted to accept any induction for me or speak on my behalf.”
Regarding any reunion, Axl put that idea to bed.
“There’s a seemingly endless amount of revisionism and fantasies out there for the sake of self-promotion and business opportunities masking the actual realities. So let sleeping dogs lie or lying dogs sleep or whatever. Time to move on. People get divorced. Life doesn’t owe you your own personal happy ending especially at another’s, or in this case several others’, expense.”
Basically, the good news is, is that Guns ‘n’ Roses aren’t going to get back together! HURRAY! Our ears can rest easy again! Provided, of course, Axl doesn’t do a duet with his awful new girlfriend, Lana Del Rey.
