The original lineup of Guns N’ Roses, sans Axl Rose, put on a hell of a show for their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame this past Saturday.
Rose had recently published a now infamous letter where — long story short — he rejected his invitation to play the concert with his old band.
Despite enormous pressure, Slash and Co. not only played, but ROCKED the concert. The crowd was enamored and went from jeering Axl Rose's name to cheering for his replacement, Myles Kennedy, who absolutely killed it!
Ch-ch-check out their AWESOME performance of Sweet Child O' Mine (above)!

Just this morning, we broke some rubbermade hearts with the news that Axl Rose will NOT be attending this Saturday’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Guns N’ Roses induction ceremony, for lengthy reasons chronicled in an open letter.
Now, the rock institution has responded to the slight diss, saying:

And he will not be attending the induction ceremony that was supposed to go down Saturday, April 14.
After many tumultuous years riddled with inner band conflicts, we were so excited to hear that Axl Rose and most of the original band members of Guns N’ Roses would reunite at their
immortalization induction ceremony at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Axl just released an epic tale of all the reasons why he WON’T be there, and why he thinks his induction should be reneged.
It is QUITE the illuminating read!
Check out the lengthy letter …AFTER THE JUMP!

While most of us are leaving the club or better yet, in bed, by 3AM…Gun N Roses are just getting the party STARTED!
The band raged all night in Orlando before making the trek to Miami for another concert. Axl Rose refused to get off the bus and slept two hours when they arrived in Miami.
And they STILL have room for partying!
After their Miami gig, GNR invited some folks back to their hotel at 3AM and partied all the through until 3PM!
They take their partying VERY seriously!

Ah, we love family reunions. Especially music family reunions!!!
The classic lineup for Guns N Roses will all be in Cleveland together for the band's induction into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame.
But hold your horses, there's no guarantee the lineup will PERFORM together.
While Axl Rose, Slash, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan, and Steven Adler will be together, current G N R member Dizzy Reed says there haven't been any talks about performing.
Reed said the following about a possible on stage reunion:

Damn! Gene Simmons has some strong opinions on Axl Rose!
According to him, Axl is the reason Guns N' Roses fell off the map. He said they could have been the greatest, but Axl screwed it all up.
The KISS bassist explains:

Well we'll be damned! He decided to show up after all!
Axl Rose hasn't been having the best of luck during concerts as of late. Fights with the crowd and accidents on stage have led many to believe that he wouldn't be so keen on finishing out his tour.
Yet here he is, front and center, in these pics from his show last night at the American Airlines Arena in Miami.
Way to do one for your fans, Axl!
Check out more pics in the gallery (below) to see more from the show!
