And…the question is….will Axl Rose and Izzy Stradlin of [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Guns ‘N Roses[/lastfm] show?  If they show, will they play with the band?

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Axl Rose[/lastfm] has made it clear that he has no interest in performing with his former band mates.  In an interview with TMZ, when asked if there was ‘any chance’ of the band’s ‘full lineup’ going on a reunion tour, Rose responded ‘not In this lifetime.’  But will he show up at the Hall of Fame Induction Ceremonies anyway?  We’ll find out Saturday evening.  In the meantime, Slash, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler, Matt Sorum and Dizzy Reed have all said they’ll be there.

Other members of the Rock Hall’s Class of 2012 include [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]The Red Hot Chili Peppers[/lastfm],[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”] The Faces[/lastfm]/[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Small Faces[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Donovan[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Laura Nyro[/lastfm],  and the [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beach Boys[/lastfm].

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Green Day[/lastfm] is set to induct Guns ‘N Roses, and other presenters include [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]John Mellencamp[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Steve Van Zandt[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]ZZ Top[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bette Midler[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Rock[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chuck D[/lastfm].   

Even though they’ve been big, bad and everywhere lately,  [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]KISS [/lastfm] won’t be inducted into the Rock Hall this year nor is it likely anytime in the near future.  Though the band’s been  eligible for 13 years, they’ve been nominated just once.  The band also continues to rail against the Hall of Fame, with [lastfm link_type=””]Gene Simmons[/lastfm] saying:  “It doesn’t matter because it’s become a sham because this is an insult to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Madonna[/lastfm] and all the other disco and rappers who have been inducted because now they can’t get inducted into the Disco Hall of Fame. “It’s a sham. We’re thinking about buying it and firing everybody.”

Sour grapes, Gene, sour grapes…
