Rose declines Hall of Fame induction

Comment on this story

New York - There will be no Guns N' Roses reunion at this weekend's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony. Axl Rose says he won't attend and is declining his induction into the hall.

The seminal band is to be inducted in Cleveland on Saturday. There was some hope that the original unit would reunite. It disbanded in acrimony in the 1990s.

But in a letter to the hall released on Wednesday, Rose said he won't be at the ceremony and would “respectfully decline” induction.

He said he has no intention of reuniting with his former bandmates. He also said he did not want to be inducted “in absentia”.

The hall didn't immediately return requests for comment. - Sapa-AP
