Duff Attending Rock Hall Induction For Fans

.
(Gibson) Whether or not Guns N' Roses do strike a chord together at their Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction this coming weekend, GN'R bass player Duff McKagan has some definite thoughts on the honor and what the band has meant to himself and to the fans since the mid-'80s.

He wrote the following on for ESPN Music: "The one reason that I am going to Cleveland this weekend is not to savor in some polite accolade or because an award show is that important to me. I am going because I have realized how important this is all to those many, many fans that supported us and believed in us, and showed up for us in droves.

"Music is not like sports, and hence, a Hall of Fame in music is almost a false pedestal to sit upon. There are no statistics in music and art. No band or artist is 'better' than another. Music comes from a primal place. Thin air. Dreams. And a lot of really hard damn work.

"No one worked harder than us back then, and we were very fortunate to have met each other in those dirty back alleys of Hollywood sometime in 1984. We meshed and wrote, created thunder and beauty, and parlayed our real-life experience into an album that somehow related to a whole angsty world that felt just like us right then and there. It was a brilliant time. more on this story
