The 27th Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies were held SATURDAY night (4/14) in CLEVELAND, and as expected, AXL ROSE was a no show when GUNS N' ROSES was inducted. Another MIA was ROD STEWART, who was to be inducted with his band FACES, but canceled due to illness. It was the second time STEWART missed the event, having skipped his 1994 induction as a solo artist due to the L.A. NORTHRIDGE earthquake.
The 6000 in attendance did get to see GNR performance featuring members from various eras. MYLES KENNEDY of ALTER BRIDGE covered for ROSE on vocals as the Slash-led band played "Mr. Brownstone," "Sweet Child O' Mine" and "Paradise City."
SIMPLY RED vocalist MICK HUCKNALL joined FACES to sit in for STEWART, and the band played "All or Nothing," "Ooh La La" and "Stay With Me."
Also inducted this year were the late blues guitarist FREDDIE KING, DONOVAN, the late LAURA NYRO, RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, BEASTIE BOYS, THE BLUE CAPS, THE COMETS, THE CRICKETS, THE FAMOUS FLAMES, THE MIRACLES and THE MIDNIGHTERS and non-performers COSIMO MATASSA, GLYN JOHNS and the late TOM DOWD and DON KIRSHNER.
