Axl Inspired Guns N' Roses Rock Hall Jam

(hennemusic) When Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose issued a public statement last month declining his participation in the band's induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, it upset longtime fans, made headlines, and according to Slash motivated the former members of the group to get up on stage and play the event.

In a new interview with Madison.com, Slash discussed the Rock Hall experience. "It was a really nice event all around, and it was a special moment for all the guys that showed up," said the guitarist. "It was a nightmare going into it, but when it actually happened it was like, 'This is pretty cool.'"

Asked about his initial reaction to Axl's letter, Slash revealed "The funny thing is we never would have played had he never written it. I think at one point he alluded he was at least going to go, and so we hadn't really prepared to play at all. We were just going to show up as almost an obligatory thing more for the fans than anything. But that letter set a fire that was like, 'Okay, (bleep) it. We're going to go play.' So it really almost didn't happen. And if it hadn't been for that special letter it wouldn't have." more on this story
