Duff Can't See Guns N' Roses Reunion for Rock Hall

(hennemusic) Original Guns N' Roses bass player Duff McKagan recently spoke with The Nervous Breakdown about the possibility of the band being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the chances for a reunion if they get in.

"Yeah, it's weird, you know? I've never striven to get into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Never in my life have I thought, 'Man, I gotta get a Grammy,'" says Duff. "In sports you try to win it all, but music's a different deal. So the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame was never on my radar."

"As a matter of fact," he continues, "I don't know how we got roped into it, but when we (Velvet Revolver) inducted Van Halen, it went south. I don't know if you remember that. It just went south. The band (VH) was fighting, and the only ones to show up were Michael Anthony and Sammy Hagar, and it was like, 'Ohhh, boy…' So when we (GN'R) got announced, that's what I remembered. But I do understand that for the fans, it's important. It's important to the people who buy your records and come to your gigs and connect with some lyric that you wrote or a groove or something. I mean, I'm part of social media — I write a couple of columns online, and people comment on those. I have Twitter and I'm on Facebook and I read people's comments about how they feel about us being inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, so then it's important to me. Only then. And I've learned to just say, 'thank you.'"

So what does Duff think could happen on the big night, whenever it happens…IF it happens? "I can't. I can't picture it. Your guess is as good as mine. There is no picture. It's bound to happen, but I'd love to call the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, whoever they are, and say, 'Hey guys, why don't you put this off for another ten years? Thank you! Thanks for nominating us — it's great, but how about you put it off for ten years?' more on this story
