Green Day to Induct Guns N’ Roses Into Rock Hall

Green Day will welcome fellow hard rockers Guns N’ Roses into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Rock Hall spokesman Todd Mesek says Green Day members Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool will induct Guns N’ Roses at Saturday’s ceremony at Cleveland’s Public Hall.

Mesek says it’s not yet known if the original Guns N’ Roses lineup will reunite and perform. Mesek say he believes frontman Axl Rose, guitarist Slash and other band members plan to attend. The group split in 1996.

Guns N’ Roses stormed onto the music scene in the mid-1980s, awakening an industry then dominated by pop and dance music.

This year’s Hall of Fame class includes the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys, Donovan, Laura Nyro and The Small Faces/The Faces.  (AP)
