PHOTOS: Izzy Stradlin joins Guns N’ Roses in London

Former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Izzy Stradlin joined his old band – or what’s left of it – on stage at the O2 Arena in London on Thursday.

Stradlin teamed up with GNR to perform the songs "14 Years," "You Could Be Mine," "Dead Flowers," "Knockin' On Heaven's Door," "Nightrain," and "Paradise City."

Stradlin’s last appearance with a GNR lineup came in 2006.

Check out some photos of Izzy with the band in London, below...

Izzy and GNR’s original lineup - Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler - along with later additions Matt Sorum and Dizzy Reed, were officially inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame last month as part of the Class Of 2012, which also included the Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Beastie Boys, The Small Faces/The Faces, Donovan and Laura Nyro.

Stradlin, Axl and Dizzy passed on attending the Cleveland event, but Izzy did release a statement to acknowledge it, just days after Rose made headlines refusing the honor.

"I have waited up to this point to see what would become of the GN'R induction into Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame,” write Stradlin. “I would like to say THANK YOU and GRACIAS to Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame for the acknowledgement of our works over the years as a band. BIG THANKS to all my bandmates who helped get us to where we are today. And, of course, THANK YOU to all of the people on this planet (including, but not limited to, the entire universe and beyond, etc., etc., etc.) who have supported Guns N’ Roses from day one. Adios, Amigos!"
