Axl Rose “Respectfully” Declines Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction

Guns 'n Roses

Axl Rose

It’s what rock stars – and wannabe rockstars – dream of: being inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. And if there is someone in our generation who is worthy of being part of that great legacy, I think that Axl Rose right there. The entire group, Guns ‘n Roses, deserves that distinction, for that matter.

But no, Axl Rose seems to have a different idea. He has respectfully declined to be inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

The induction is supposed to happen this weekend, with the famed rock group getting together again if it happens. By the looks of it, though, fans should not even expect it at the slightest. Former front man Axl Rose has already made an official statement (not that anything “official” has stopped him in the past) that he will not be accepting the honor. He says that it is a personal decision and that he does not want to disappoint anyone. In addition, Axl Rose specifically requested in his statement that he not be inducted in absentia. Speculations abound that this is due to Steven Adler’s comments about the singer, and if Axl’s sentiments about considering to get together on stage with ONLY Izzy Stradlin and Duff McKagan are any indication, Steven Adler may very well be the reason.

Pissed? Disappointed? Take a look at the video below where Steven Adler gives his side of the story. I don’t know about you, but I call BS on it!

Still, as much as I adored Axl Rose as a teenager (and while that has lessened, he is still one of my favorites), personal sentiments aside, I think he should accept the induction. What’s your take?
