Slash Twitter Drama: Says He Never Committed to Guns N’ Roses Hall of Fame Induction Appearance

Earlier this month, it was announced that Guns N’ Roses will be officially inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this coming April.

Since the announcement was made, the Internet has been abuzz as to whether all of the ‘Appetite for Destruction’ era members of the band would be on hand for the ceremony or not. Well, the speculation, and the drama around it, took a new twist yesterday thanks to a a tweet from ‘That Metal Show’ host Eddie Trunk.

After interviewing Rock and Roll Hall of Fame president and CEO Joel Peresman, Trunk tweeted that, according to Peresman, the entire band had RSVPd that they would show up to the award presentation. A few hours later, Slash took issue with the validity of that statement via his own Twitter account. His message read, “For the record, I didn’t RSVP or in any way commit to attending the RRHF. I don’t appreciate people putting words in my mouth. Iii|; )”

Two weeks ago, in an interview with Rolling Stone, former Guns ‘N Roses drummer Steven Adler said the following when asked if he thought all five members of the classic lineup would show up to the ceremony:

“Absolutely not. But, as far as I know, there is a God and a higher power, and it’s possible. Unfortunately, I don’t foresee it. You figure that time could heal all wounds, but some people just REALLY hold a crazy grudge.”

In addition to Guns N’ Roses, the 2012 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees will include the Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Laura Nyro, Donovan, Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood‘s the Faces/Small Faces and late blues legend Freddie King, who will be inducted as an early influence. The ceremony will be held on April 24, 2012 in Cleveland, Ohio.
