It happened. I said it would: Guns n' Roses will be inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame this coming April. Other artist inductees include the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys, Donovan, Laura Nyro and the Small Faces.
Now, the real fun begins. The rumors. The panic. The crazy Tweets from GnR members, both past and present. The media tours. The arguments. Oh, it will be Glam joy to see how this plays out. But the most important thing of all is the induction ceremony and the constant refrain of "Will Axl show?"
If anything prompts an all-original Guns n' Roses reunion, it will be the Rock Hall induction ceremony. If the media scrutiny and hoopla surrounding the induction ceremony can't force Axl and Slash back together, I don't think anything else will. This year, the induction ceremony will actually happen in Cleveland, home to the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. I'm planning on going to the induction ceremony just to witness this all with my own two eyes. Some things in life just can't be missed. But don't worry: if you can't travel to Ohio in April, HBO will air the ceremony at a later date. I'm looking forward to writing about this over the next five months!
