Guns N’ Roses: Axl Rose comments on Rock Hall induction

Guns N’ Roses have commented on the band’s 2012 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.

The band is headed into the Hall in its first year of eligibility, which is 25 years following the release of your debut album.

Joining GNR in the Class of 2012 performers category are The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Beastie Boys, The Small Faces/The Faces, Donovan and Laura Nyro.

We’re going to assume it’s Axl Rose speaking, since he’s the lone original member of the band, and appears to be responsible for directing the brand these days.

Here’s the GNR post from Facebook:

So close yet still far away from the Rock N' Roll Hall of Fame. Congratulations to all the 2012 inductees and our sincerest thanks to the Hall's organizers, committee members and voting delegates who supported the GN'R induction - it's a humbling honor to be recognized on this first ballot.

While it's so easy to get hyped up on awards and r...ecognition of the now, let's never forget the soldiers who fight for the freedom we enjoy. ESPECIALLY on this day 70 years ago at Pearl Harbor, the lagoon in Hawaii where the ultimate price was paid. REMEMBER December 7th is the day to commemorate the Japanese attack that drew the United States into World War II.


The Axl-led GNR play Youngstown, Ohio tonight, so we’ll look to see if the singer makes any comments from the stage at the show.
