Axl did not attend specifically because he would have been required to take the stage at a specific time.

Taking the stage on time is something Mr. Rose simply will not tolerate.

urban.derelict: Your Average Witty Fark User: I'm thrilled that Kennedy performed with the rest of the band. He's not a half bad replacement, the guys got to play together, and the fans got to see something they'll never see again. Axl Rose is a self centered asshole.

Yeah some f*cking kid from Nowhere, Indiana, who rocked the motherf*cking world by storm, who had no illusions about 'it' lasting forever yet guaranteed his own survival. For the rest of his life.

/mad props, Axl
//buncha f*cking whiners you all are


Didn't realize you were a Farker, Mr. Rose.

Someone mentioned Mötley Crüe and Tesla being washed up. Crüe are one of the biggest summer tours every year. Tesla are on tour right now, will tour with the Scorpions this summer, and thanks to DYI, are making more money today than the did in their 80s heyday. And they're consistently one of the finest live acts you'll ever see.

Axl Rose........Is that the chick that sounded like she was singing at gunpoint after getting kicked in the uterus?

James Scameron: McCartney sure tried to get the Beatles business under one umbrella and had Lennon not blown most of it's equity on clothing stores,Apple Corps and a lot of garbage, he mighta.
But is McCartney a douchebag egomaniac?


Consolidating the Beatles under the Apple Corp isn't the same as throwing a hissy-fit and threatening to bail on the band if they didn't sign over the name and rights to you.

In addition, Paul didn't make a big deal out of being a no-show at the RRHOF. He didn't attend because he was locking horns with Yoko over song writing credits. Paul already had enough shiat going on with Michael Jackson buying out the Beatles catalog from under him.

From your Fark profile:

Dude, stop being so hard on yourself...

limboslam: The Rock and Roll Hall of fame?


She's in.


They're not.

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame truly is, as the Sex Pistols said, a piss stain.


Rush is a band if like if it weren't for Geddy's voice and Rush fans.

They insist upon themselves

Robert1966: Add me to the list of those who think Guns 'n' Roses doesn't belong in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I think they were a great band, but I don't think they were an important band.


They practically single-handedly ended the "hair metal" music genre. That by itself is grounds for enshrinement.

Flagg99: Dizzy Reed didn't go either. His wife tweeted that it wasn't worth spending 20,000$ to attend a dinner "in your honour" when half your bandmates aren't going


You'd have to be an idiot to spend $20K on a trip to Cleveland for anything.

schpanky: No mention of Izzy Stradlin? Was he there?


No. He also wrote a letter saying he wasn't going. Duff published it on his blog. It was a bit shorter than Axl's and basically said he was waiting to see what happened, didn't like what he saw, and wasn't going.

Izzy would only go if Axl showed, plain and simple. It was their band, despite revisionist history (Slash replaced Traci Guns, after failing his audition for Poison). Izzy and Rose were the main songwriters also.

Dizzy Reed didn't go either. His wife tweeted that it wasn't worth spending 20,000$ to attend a dinner "in your honour" when half your bandmates aren't going.

It was funny seeing Gilby Clarke show up when he wasn't inducted yet Izzy, Dizzy, and Axl (who together make awesome Scrabble scores) no-showed.

Axl cannot sing. At least not anymore. Recent live clips are horrible.
