In a move that is unlikely to shock anyone, Axl Rose has turned down his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Guns N' Roses.

"No one is authorized nor may anyone be permitted to accept any induction for me or speak on my behalf. Neither former members, label representatives nor the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame should imply whether directly, indirectly or by omission that I am included in any purported induction of "Guns N’ Roses."

The original line-up, minus Axl Rose, will be in attendance at the ceremony this Saturday (14th April, 2012).
