The last original Guns N’ Roses member, guitarist Izzy Stradlin, has finally weighed in with his own statement about the group’s upcoming induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Stradlin, who apparently isn’t part of the on-line revolution, sent the message out into the universe courtesy of his buddy, former bandmate and current part-time journalist Duff McKagan, who issued a pair of highly classy statements of his own recently about what has turned into quite a mess.

It has been suggested that Stradlin would not be appearing at the ceremony, and while he doesn’t confirm one way or the other in this note, the “Adios, Amigos!” sign-off seems to imply he will not show up. Instead he simply offers a big bundle of positivity and thanks to the Hall of Fame, to his bandmates and to the band’s millions of fans. You can read his entire statement right here:

I have waited up to this point to see what would become of the GNR induction into RRHOF. I would like to say THANK YOU and GRACIAS to RRHOF for the acknowledgement of our works over the years as a band. BIG THANKS to all my bandmates who helped get us to where we are today. And, of course, THANK YOU to all of the people on this planet (including, but not limited to, the entire universe and beyond, etc., etc., etc.) who have supported Guns N’ Roses from day one. Adios, Amigos!

Izzy Stradlin
