Guns N’ Roses Ban Slash T-shirts At Concert

The current line-up of Guns N’ Roses will take the stage later tonight at London’s O2 Arena, finishing up a string of drama-filled UK tour dates. Just make sure you don’t show up in your classic Slash Tee.

NME caught up with a Guns N’ Roses fan who attended last nights show at the O2 Arena, shirtless. That’s right, when 18-year-old James Revell showed up, ticket-in-hand and shirt-on-back, security requested that he remove the offending shirt or he would not be allowed to attend the concert. NME quotes a venue worker at last night’s show as saying, “We were told by the management not to allow anyone into the O2 Arena who is wearing a Slash T-shirt and we are asking anyone who is to remove it and if they refuse they will be turned away.”

Wow. We knew Axl‘s beef with Slash cut pretty deep, just not to the point of enforcing a reverse dress code.

In the words of the surprisingly mature James Revell, “…I think that Axl Rose doesn’t appreciate his fans or anyone for that matter, he needs to grow up and stop acting like a child.”

Axl Rose Declines Hall of Fame Induction

“I strongly request that I not be inducted in absentia,” Rose says, in a letter he addressed to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, ” …and please know that no one is authorized nor may anyone be permitted to accept any induction for me or speak on my behalf.”

Since the announcement of their nomination, fans have been speculating whether or not Guns’N'Roses would be reuniting to perform at the induction ceremony this Saturday, but in light of Rose’s letter, it looks like they are out of luck. In fact, although both Slash and Duff McKagan have expressed their intentions to be at the ceremony, no one really knows what to expect. Performance aside, it seems like the Hall is still pushing through with the induction.

“We are sorry he will not be able to accept his induction in person,” was all they said in response to Rose’s statement.

Green Day Prepares Hall Of Fame Induction Speech for Guns N’ Roses

According to RollingStoneGreen Day will be inducting Guns N’ Roses into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 14th. Former GN’R members Slash, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler, Matt Sorum, and Dizzy Reed have confirmed they’ll be attending the ceremony in Cleveland. However, it’s possible that lead singer and last remaining original member Axl Rose may pull a no-show along with co-founding guitarist, Izzy Stradlin. If they neglect the ceremony, it’s unlikely that the band would perform without them.

If G’n'R doesn’t make it, there will still be plenty of other talent on display. In addition to Green Day, Chris Rock will induct the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bette Midler for Laura Nyro, Chuck D for the Beastie Boys, ZZ Top for Freddie King, Carole King for Don Kirshner, John Mellencamp for Donovan and Steve Van Zandt for Small Faces/Faces. Also, Robbie Robertson will attend to induct Cosimo Matassa, Tom Dowd and Glyn Johns, and Smokey Robinson will induct the Blue Caps, the Comets, the Crickets, the Famous Flames, the Midnighters and the Miracles.

Axl, Axl, Axl…

This month Guns N’ Roses are back to play six “small” venues to try to reconnect with their core fans. Let’s just hope they stick to the classics and neglect Chinese Democracy like a redheaded step child. However, despite how much of a fail that album was, the band will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this April—a decision based strictly off their earlier output! OK, enough GN’R bashing. For now, let’s take a look at the dates and venues they’ll be playing…

Feb. 10 - NYC – Roseland Ballroom

Feb. 12 - NYC – Terminal 5

Feb. 15 - NYC – The Ritz /Webster Hall

Feb. 19 – Chicago, IL - House of Blues

Feb. 23 – Silver Spring, MD – The Fillmore

Feb. 24 – Atlantic City, NJ – House of Blues

On February 15th, Webster Hall (formerly know as The Ritz) will be putting their old moniker back on the marque just for Axl himself. This is in honor of the 24th anniversary of Axl’s landmark MTV performance “Live At The Ritz” with the classic Guns lineup. It’s Webster Hall’s way of honoring Axl and the revolving door he lately calls Guns N’ Rosesactually he probably paid out-of-pocket to change the sign. However, regardless of my snipping, I’m sure the show will be a hit with the hardcore fans lucky enough to score tickets. So, if you’re interested in attending one of these events, you can  try to purchase tickets and VIP packages here at the GN’R Web site. While you’re there, be sure to admire the investment they put down on their half a**, I mean half complete, Web site. Don’t worry, it’ll be up and running within the next sixteen yearsthe band just likes to take their time.

Metal Monday: Looking Forward to 2012

Last week we covered the things we want most from the metal world in the coming year, some of which were things we already know are going to happen—we just hope it’s not for the worst (except Axl Rose, poor guy). Outside of the metal Christmas list, there are some happenings in the coming year that we’re especially amped for, and now we’re going to tell you all about them so you can be excited too!

First, the whale-loving Francophones Gojira will be releasing their follow-up to The Way Of All Flesh—one of our absolute favorite metal records of 2008. Over the last decade Gojira have steadily built a fanbase with their unique brand of rhythmic and forceful metal. The band really got their big break opening for Metallica a few years ago, and just recently signed to Roadrunner Records. If you didn’t already know who Gojira were, you certainly will now. There is a good chance this record will see itself in a lot of top album lists for 2012 if the band’s previous sucess is any indication of things to come.

Obviously, Gojira aren’t the only band releasing a highly-anticipated album in 2012. Perhaps the most anticipated metal album of 2012 is the upcoming Black Sabbath album. We briefly covered this in last week’s metal Christmas list, but let’s think a bit more about it.  Ozzy Osbourne released an album called Scream in 2010, which was okay. More importantly, Ozzy didn’t sound like total garbage on the recordings and this gives fans hope for the upcoming album. Now, can you remember the last album that the other 3/4 of Sabbath put out? Under the moniker Heaven & Hell, the Dio version of Black Sabbath released an album called The Devil You Know and it was fantastic. Who knows if they’ll be able to play well at live shows at this point, but there’s reason to believe that the album the band records will be at least “pretty good.”
