Axl Rose has apparently posted a new letter to fans thanking them for their support in the wake of his decision not to attend Guns N' Roses induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this past Saturday (April 14). The letter, posted earlier today (April 17) on the singer's official Twitter page, seems to mix sarcasm with genuine feelings of gratitude.
As you may have heard, Axl Rose put a rest to months of speculation yesterday (April 11) when he issued a rather sternly worded open letter to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame saying he would not be attending this weekend when Guns N' Roses are honored -- and requested that he not be inducted in absentia. Today, the Hall responded with a few words of its own.
After weeks of speculation, Axl Rose has written an open letter to fans stating he will not be attending the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony this Saturday, April 14, in Cleveland, where his band Guns N' Roses are set to be enshrined. Moreover, he has asked that his own induction be retracted.
Axl Rose has hammered another nail in the Guns N' Roses original lineup coffin. The singer was photographed exiting the famed Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles last night (April 6) with pop music up 'n comer Lana Del Rey when he delivered a one-sentence declaration about playing with his former bandmates.
Since the minute they were announced as possible 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, the hot topic in the world of rock has been the potential for a Guns N' Roses reunion. In a recent interview, Slash reveals that he is sick of talking about whether it will happen or not and explains that vocalist Axl Rose hates his guts.
Axl Rose has amassed quite a few detractors over the years based on his late arrivals to the stage - or in the instance of a 2002 show in Philadelphia, not showing up at all. On that fateful night in 2002, when the crowd found out Guns N’ Roses wouldn’t be taking the stage, a riot erupted, resulting in several fans being sent to the hospital.
It's a celebratory time for the current and former members of Guns N' Roses and not just because they are gearing up for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, which is set to take place in April, or because Slash has a new album coming out in May! Two key members are celebrating birthdays this week, which was acknowledged by Slash via Twitter.
