Guns N Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys going to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Fans of Guns N’ Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Beastie Boys can finally breathe a sigh of relief. The three bands will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 14th, 2012 at the Hall of Fame in Cleveland, OH.
Other inductees will include Donovan, singer/songwriter Laura Nyro and The Faces whose lineup once boasted artists like Rod Stewart and Ronnie Wood. The Cure, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts and Eric B. & Rakim missed the honor this year.
So now the big question will be whether GnR will reunite on stage to accept the honor or will Axl diva out and refuse to walk on stage with Slash, Izzy, Duff and Steven Adler. Or perhaps this will be the catalyst to finally get a proper Guns n’ Roses reunion? Either way, it’s good that they’ve finally been recognized for their contribution to rock music because whether you love ‘em or hate ‘em, they wrote some bad ass tunes back in the day.
Of course, the Chili Peppers will show up and most likely John Frusciante will be there as well. The Beasties never broke up so maybe this will be an opportunity for them to finally perform live again. In any case, HBO will air the ceremony in May of 2012 so set your DVR from now.
