While Axl was nowhere to be found (neither was Izzy for that matter), the remaining original members of Guns N' Roses didn't let that stop them from getting up on stage after their acceptance speeches at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this past Saturday night and giving fans what they wanted.
In the months leading up to Guns N' Roses impending induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it seems like we've heard from just about everyone who has ever been in the band. Except one: Izzy Stradlin.
After Axl Rose's recent open letter to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — in which be publicly declined to be inducted and stated he would not be appearing — the attention immediately turned to the other members of the band's classic lineup and how they would react to their former lead singer.
If you've been following the saga of Guns N' Roses even loosely over the last couple of decades or so, then you know that almost all of the bad blood that still exists between the band's original members is almost all squarely between Slash and Axl Rose.
