Guns N’ Roses: Slash explains Myles Kennedy singing at Rock Hall induction


Former members of Guns N’ Roses took to the stage last weekend at the band’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.

Slash, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler, Matt Sorum and Gilby Clarke were on hand to perform (Clarke was not inducted) a few GNR classics for the Cleveland crowd.

With Axl Rose , Izzy Stradlin and Dizzy Reed declining to participate, it was left up to the group’s former players to decide if they would perform, what they would perform, and who would handle vocals.

"The rest of the guys/inductees suggested we get Myles [Kennedy] to sing," says Slash, "and I thought it was a great idea."

Kennedy sings in both Alter Bridge and with Slash’s solo band, which is where he gained experience performing classic GNR tracks, like the ones played at the Rock Hall.

"It turned out to be a very special evening," added Slash.

You can watch GNR perform their Rock Hall set here.

For fans who want to check out the full event, the 27th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will premiere on HBO on Saturday, May 5th (9:00-11:30 p.m. EST/PST).
