Music News from the Rock Station, 92-7 WQLZ by Bishop
Slash admits it … being at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony turned out “to be a really great experience.” The legendary Shredder made the comments in Italy where he’s promoting his solo album Apocalyptic Love. The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist said that in the months leading up to the ceremony he had very negative thoughts about the whole affair, but after learning that other former members were going, he quickly changed his tune and said it was a really positive and pleasant experience. Slash was asked about Axl Rose but he responded “I specifically don’t talk about him.” Rose refused to show up to the ceremony and was replaced on stage for the live performance by Myles Kennedy. You can watch the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, with all the performances, on HBO, May 5th. Check your local listings.
