Axl Rose may finally get his due.
Guns N’ Roses is among 15 finalists being considered for induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
Others hitting the ballot for the first time this year are The Cure (very deserving, if you ask me), Heart, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts (really!?!), The Spinners, Faces, Freddy King and Rufus With Chaka Khan. Previous noms the Beastie Boys, War, Laura Nyro, Donovan, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers are also on the ballot.
Damn, am I getting old. When Metallica were voted in, I felt old. Now Guns? The Cure? I’m old. This was the first year Guns were eligible for nomination. I wonder if this means we will soon see an on-stage reunion of the original GN’R? That would be phat.
By the way, it was induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame that led to Metallouca, by bringing together Lou Reed amd Metallica. Now, I’m worried Axl is going to end up teaming up with Erik B. and Rakim or some shit. The Rock Hall should be held accountable for this fucking Lulu record, dammit.
We will know in January whether Guns N’ Roses made it. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will have its 27th annual induction ceremony on April 14, 2012, in Cleveland, Ohio, home to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame And Museum.
