Axl’s a No-Show; But Just Who Is Coming To The Rock-n-Roll Hall Of Fame Induction?

flckr user/thezenderagenda.com

By now most of us know Axl’s being a dick. Big shock. Isn’t that his side-gig? The former (wait… current? Ok, whatever.) front-man of GNR has said; ‘Don’t induct me!’ and the RnRHoF has said, ‘Bummer, we’re gonna anyway‘. Slash is comin’. Dr. Drew’s whippin’ boy Steve Adler is gonna be there. Duff McKagan is showing. Fer chrissake, even Matt Sorum is poppin’ his head in. So with that said, let’s move on, and answer the question: Just WHO IS showing up for induction?

The answer is, as usual, a lot of cool people.

On Thursday, RnRHoF officials announced a few new additions to the much-maligned get-together of Rock (? LL Cool J?) Royalty, this Saturday night in Cleveland.

The (Small) Faces are reuniting, including Rod Stewart and Ron Wood. Kenney Jones and Ian McLagan have confirmed that they too will be there for the reunion. The four surviving members have not jammed together as Faces since a 1993 benefit for then ailing bassist Ronnie Lane, who has since passed from MS. Steve Marriott, who fronted The Small Faces had died two years prior.

It’s fitting that Rod should get another chance to hit the stage at the Hall. In 1994, he missed his own induction because, two days earlier, an earthquake hit LA and Stewart didn’t want to leave his young children who he said were ‘terrified’. Drummer Kenny Jones (Yes. THAT Kenny Jones, who replaced Keith Moon in The Who) told Billboard.com that they are ready to ’cause havoc’, because The Faces were still ‘naughty boys’. Well… with their average age being 65, ‘havoc’ and ‘naughty’ are relative terms. If Betty White shows up, then maybe he’s got something there.

After being inducted by Chris Rock, The Red Hot Chili Peppers will perform, sans the great guitarist John Frusciante, who’s told the band he’s ‘moved on’.

John Mellencamp, is slated to sing with and induct folkie legend Donovan, who he toured with several years ago.

ZZ Top’s Rev. Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill will jam for and induct blues-man Freddie King.

Darlene Love will serenade the aging audience in memory of powerhouse concert promoter and TV concert guru Don Kirshner.

So far, there are no plans for a performance from the four former members of GNR who play nice.

We think that the final jam, where everybody and their mother hits the stage, should be a rendition of Sweet Child Of Mine. With LL Cool J on vocals. That oughtta give that whiny bitch Axl a what-for, eh?
