Gilby Clarke Recalls Playing Axl Free Guns N' Roses Rock Hall Induction

(hennemusic) Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke spoke with KLOS 95.5 FM in Los Angeles on Friday about a variety of subjects, including playing the band's induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2012 without frontman Axl Rose.

"It was a strange time, because there was kind of like a dark cloud over our whole induction, because Axl decided not to go," said Clarke. "And once he decided not to go, the dark cloud kind of went away, 'cause the guys that did go, we all get along great, we still play together all the time, and it actually was fun. We had a really good time."

"We actually only rehearsed, like, the night before the thing," he continued. "We got together at a club… We hadn't played those songs in 20 years, so that was the thing… I mean, for me, we were trying to figure out what songs we were gonna play, and I'm, like, 'Wow, I haven't played that song in 20 years.' It had to come back to me. It was funny: there was a photo going around on Twitter of Duff and I in the bathroom, actually, going over the songs, trying to remember the riffs and things like that." more on this story
