On Friday Stupid Grudge Preventing Guns N' Roses Reunion was a top story. Here is the recap: (Gibson) Guns N' Roses are among this year's inductees into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, an honor they're receiving on their very first year of eligibility. Such as event seems like cause for, at long last, a full-fledged, Guns N' Roses reunion, but according to drummer Steven Adler, the guys have no official plans to get back in the same room together, even for a cause as big as the Hall.
When asked if he thinks all five Appetite for Destruction-era members of Guns N' Roses will show up for the induction, Adler told Rolling Stone, "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."
Axl Rose seems cool with Duff McKagan, Izzy Stradlin and Adler. The hope is that he'll patch things up with guitar great Slash. "He should be cool with Slash!" Adler exclaimed. "The real shame about the ending of the Guns N' Roses when I got kicked out wasn't just that I got kicked out, but Slash and Axl stopped working together. They are the Keith Richards and the Mick Jagger! The Steven Tyler and Joe Perry!
"For 20 years, because of some STUPID grudge, which I guarantee you that neither of them could even tell you what it was. They don't even know! I just had lunch with Slash two days ago. He loves Axl. He holds no grudges towards him. Twenty years of great music wasn't created because of some stupid grudge. That's a shame." - more on this story
