It's been speculated about for months now but Paul Shaffer -- David Letterman bandleader and Rock and Roll Halll of Fame musical director -- has confirmed that Guns N' Roses will not be performing during their April 14 induction to the Rock Hall...or has he.

Many GN'R purists have been dreaming of the day when the band's original lineup will put their differences aside and rock out some 'Appetite for Destruction' tunes together on stage again. Many believed that moment would come at their induction to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this April and although it was classified as a dead issue yesterday, there still may be a chance the band will reunite.

Paul Shaffer, The Rock Hall music director, tweeted "Guns N’ Roses will not be performing, so [the ceremony will] not [be] as long as you would think." After news sites began running the story, the tweet was deleted and Shaffer released a statement saying he does not operate that Twitter account -- it is ran by Envision Radio Network. The company explains they have no idea what happened but they didn't compose the tweet in question either.

So where does this leave the chances of a reunion performance from Guns' N' Roses? In the exact same place they were before -- up in the air.
