Axl Rose has declined his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Guns N’ Roses is getting inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year but Axl Rose wants no part of it.

In a letter posted by Rose on the , he says, “I won’t be attending The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction 2012 Ceremony and I respectfully decline my induction as a member of Guns N’ Roses to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.” He added that the decision was personal and it’s not meant to “offend, attack or contend.” I’m guessing he wants to spend more time playing “Video Games” with .

Rose goes on to say, “I strongly request that I not be inducted in absentia and please know that no one is authorized nor may anyone be permitted to accept any induction for me or speak on my behalf. Neither former members, label representatives nor the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame should imply whether directly, indirectly or by omission that I am included in any purported induction of ‘Guns N’ Roses’.”

Oh, and just to add more tinder to this fire, Rose also addressed the possibility of the original line up of GnR doing a reunion tour. He said, “In regard to a reunion of any kind of either the Appetite or Illusion lineups, I’ve publicly made myself more than clear. Nothing’s changed.” Well that’s a big fat NO, isn’t it?

The induction ceremony will take place on April 14th in Cleveland, OH.
