Guns N’ Roses Original Lineup To Attend Rock Hall Induction

There’s been plenty of responses like “I don’t know” and “We’ll see what happens” regarding Guns N’ Roses upcoming Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. Now we have confirmation that the Appetite-era members will all be on hand for the ceremony.

While singer Axl Rose has made it pretty clear that he is happy with the current GN’R roster and doesn’t want to offend them, it appears that the one-off reunion performance may actually go down at the Rock Hall ceremony this April. Dizzy Reed, current GN’R keyboard player and longest active member besides Axl, recently told Billboard:

“I know that all the original band is going to be there. I don’t know exactly what’s going to go down. It’s one of those things I’m sure will all come together and be really cool. I’m just going to go in with a good attitude and a clear head and a grateful heart.”

Reed is not the only one excited about the possible on-stage reunion — shortly after Guns N’ Roses were nominated for the honor, current guitarist DJ Ashba told us he “would be the first person in line to buy a ticket” if there was an original lineup reunion. Ashba, however, also said that he didn’t believe it would happen. Though all the necessary parties will be in the room for the ceremony, Reed revealed that the possibility of the highly-coveted reunion isn’t something he knows how to address within the band:

“Honestly, we haven’t spoken about it. I don’t know when or why or how to bring it up. It’s not an every day sort of thing. So we haven’t really talked about it — but I’m sure we’ll have to at some point.”

Lets hope so. The original GN’R lineup — consisting of Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin, and Steven Adler — have not shared a stage together since April 7th, 1990. The band last performed at Farm Aid IV and dismissed Adler during the ‘Use Your Illusion’ sessions in July of that same year. Adler was replaced by Matt Sorum, who is also likely to be in attendance at the April 14th induction ceremony.
