why Axl Rose won’t play the rock n roll hall of fame
We’ve been tittering at the rock n roll hall of fame for years. What a rubbish idea- and they expect bands to get on their knees and grovel to get in.
For me rock n roll is about the moment between performer and audience and not wearing dickie bow to some corporate event, of course it’s nice to win these awards but they are not the main objective.
So it’s great when some one tells them to fuck off.
Axl Roses was meant to be reuniting with the rest of Guns on Roses at the ceremony in Cleveland this weekend. has now come out and said that he wishes to take no part in the whole thing.
In the letter, he hits out at media coverage of the build-up to the ceremony and “jabs from former members of Guns N’ Roses” and tells the group’s fans “‘Life doesn’t owe you your own personal happy ending”.
Speaking about why he has made this choice, Rose wrote: “This decision is personal. This letter is to help clarify things from my and my camp’s perspective. Neither is meant to offend, attack or condemn. Though unfortunately I’m sure there will be those who take offence (God knows how long I’ll have to contend with the fallout), I certainly don’t intend to disappoint anyone, especially the fans, with this decision.”
He continued: “Since the announcement of the nomination we’ve actively sought out a solution to what, with all things considered, appears to be a no win, at least for me, ‘damned if I do, damned if I don’t’ scenario all the way around. In regard to a reunion of any kind of either the Appetite”Â¦ or Illusion”Â¦ line-ups, I’ve publicly made myself more than clear. Nothing’s changed.”
