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.
