GN'R nominated for Hall of Fame - INDUCTED!

Post by Soulmonster on Tue Sep 27, 2011 1:25 am

Guns N' Roses, Heart, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts and the Cure are among the first-timers on short list of nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's class of 2011, joining returning hopefuls the Beastie Boys, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Donna Summer and others.

Fifteen finalists are on the ballot that's been sent to the Rock Hall's more than 500 voters, who will in turn select five to be inducted into the shrine on April 14, when the 27th annual ceremony returns to Cleveland for the third time. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation will subsequently determine non-performing inductees and recipients of the Award for Musical Excellence (formerly Sidemen).

Other first-time nominees on this year's ballot include the Small Faces/Faces, the Spinners, Rufus with Chaka Khan, Freddie King and rappers Eric B. & Rakim. Donovan, Laura Nyro and War are making return visits to the ballot.

Acts are eligible at least 25 years after their first commercial recording release, meaning 1986 or before for this year's group. This is the first year for Guns 'N Roses and Eric B. & Rakim's eligibility.

Small Faces and Faces keyboardist Ian McLagan announced that "it's about bloody time" his bands were nominated but said he felt that grouping the two together was "a bit insulting. If we have to go in as a combo, that's not right. It's a dollar short and many years too late -- but I'll take it." Two of the Faces are already in the Rock Hall: Rod Stewart as a solo artist; and Ron Wood as part of the Rolling Stones. Drummer Kenney Jones was briefly in the Who but was not inducted with them in 1990.

As in 2009, the 2012 ceremony will be open to the public. Individual tickets will go on sale in December, while tables and VIP packages are available now, Information can we found at www.rockhall.com. The Hall of Fame + Museum is planning 10 days of special activities leading up to the ceremony, including the unveiling of a new exhibit and the grand opening of its library and archives.

Duff:

I was utterly surprised and a bit overwhelmed last week when I woke up in the early morning to my BlackBerry beeping without end. Guns N' Roses, a band I co-founded, was nominated for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. I am very grateful for all of the well-wishes I have received here at ESPN, and everywhere else. Thank you.

But we in that band are relatively young dudes, and I was astonished to see just who hadn't yet made that Hall of Fame. Older artists who have paid their dues in full and have changed how we approach and look at music. Faces? Motorhead? It's a big list. Look it up.

Yeah, continue I think Wink.

There should be no denying that GN'R is mostly inducted because of their achievements before 1994, but that being said, the fact that Axl has soldiered on despite all the problems, released one more album, and is now touring successfully should mean something, of not very much. I would really like to see both old guns and new guns together on the stage, all being happy and friendly to each other. If they can't accept history how can the fan base?

Indeed. It would be great if both the original band and the new band would perform or at least attend. And I agree for once with Steven that Sorum and Dizzy should also be inducted.

I shall post the interview. Rolling Stone spoke to him after releasing the news of the induction.

What do you say? GNR news or former members?

From Broskirose at gunsnfnroses:

I'm listening to Trunks show. The CEO of the HOF said that Axl, Slash, Duff, Izzy and Steven all got back to them and said they are coming to the induction.

And just to confirm this again:

-Guns N' Roses have changed members quite a few times over the years. Who is actually going to be inducted?
The five original members (Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler and Izzy Stradlin') plus Matt Sorum and Dizzy Reed.

Would be funny if only Slash from the classic line-up would not attend. Innocent

Although I don't think he says he won't attend.

No, he just claims he HASN'T said he will come yet, although that is a lie, because he said he would attend in the Eddie Trunk interview .

Yeah, same here. And I actually think Axl will show up too, considering what he said in the recent interview about not wanting to disappoint anyone.

It'll be good if Izzy shows up, too. I know he isn't very reliable but IMO he's one of the people who deserves most to be there for his musical contribution to the band in the past.


Hope Steaven get diarrhea or something and can't come
