gunsnroses Guns N Roses will not perform together at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction

Update: According to Envision Radio Networks (via Blabbermouth), who works alongside Shaffer, the tweet was made by an employee and not Shaffer himself. The tweet has since been removed.

Despite keyboardist Dizzy Reed’s hopes for a reunited performance, the original line up for Guns N’ Roses – y’ know, Axl Rose, Izzy Stradlin, Slash, Steven Adler, and Duff McKagan – will not take the stage to perform together at this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction. In a recent Twitter interview (via Blabbermouth), the website Future Rock Legends discussed potential performances at this year’s ceremony with the museum’s musical director and producer Paul Shaffer (yes, the Paul Shaffer), who responded: “Guns N’ Roses will not be performing, so not as long as you would think.”

So, there you have it. No word on whether or not we’ll see them together, at the very least, for a depressing group shot, but stay tuned for the ceremony, which goes down April 14th in Cleveland, Ohio. In the meantime, check out the band in its glory days below:

The band’s latest LP, Chinese Democracy, remains at Best Buy locations everywhere via Geffen Records.

“I am writing to set the record straight on a story Blabbermouth printed earlier this evening [Thursday, March 8]. The story quoted Paul Shaffer’s Twitter account as saying GUNS N’ ROSES would not be performing at this year’s induction ceremony. Please know this tweet did not come from Mr. Shaffer, as his Twitter account is in conjunction with his syndicated radio feature with our network, and all tweets are handled by one of our staff members. No one is exactly sure what will happen at the induction ceremony, and we apologize for the inadvertent tweet.”
