Axl Rose declines induction to Rock And Roll HOF

Posted by Chris R16/R2730 on Thu Apr 12 12:07:18 2012

Maybe he just doesn't like Cleveland?

People need to get over GunsNRoses. They perhaps made the greatest metal album of all time (Appetite For Destruction) a genre and time defining masterpiece. Since then they've done nothing of note except disappoint. Just let it go.

Great music, but a total group of assholes.

A group of assholes still living off the success of an album released nearly 25 years ago. I still hate Axl for what he did in Montreal in 1992 when James Hetfield was severely burned in that pyrotechnic accident.

Still, it's unusual for someone to turn down such a recognition bestowed upon you by your peers. Axl likes to be the front-man asshole, much like Eddie Vedder and Kurt Cobain.

I liked "You Could Be Mine" that was a cool song...

Waits for it...

Even AFD was overrated compared to other metal records. Many other metal records, in fact.

No way. GnR is an overrated band, but AFD was their magnum opus and probably the definitive mid-late 80's glam metal work. Sadly, when you achieve such success at the beginning of your career, there's nowhere to go but down.

My favorite track isn't one of theit biggest hits, but the final one:

Glad to see you've moved on. I did, in 1991. Releasing two albums at the same time? Twice the cost, twice the filler, no thanks. Hmmmm, what's this Pearl Jam thing ......

I'll confess I wasn't a big fan of theirs but they did bloat the market and a lot of that stuff was unlistenable. I think there was one single album there. The Clash did the same in 81 with Sandinista!, a triple album that at the time cost a whole 12 bucks! There's a single album of great stuff diluted by 2 other records. Then they became Clash Lite and it was over.

your pal,
Fred

Seems to be a problem for "classic rock" stations though.

They don't play enough Mountain on classic rock stations.

I still remember the first time I heard that song. July 1991, was listening to "Pure Rock" 105.5 KNAC (great LA-area hard rock/heavy metal station from 1986-1995), was driving back home from a wedding in Newport Beach in a rented Ford Probe LOL

I remember when I first heard it as well. I was sitting on my couch about two minutes ago. :)

I like Guns n Roses ok, but never heard that before.

Speaking of that band, Felix Pappalardi's 29th anniversary is coming up in four days. He's also famous for producing Cream's Disraeli Gears album.
