The band Guns N' Roses was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame over the weekend despite Axl Rose's decision not to attend, and now the rocker has one more thing to say about the ceremony: He's sorry.
Via his Twitter account, Rose has offered a mea culpa to the city of Cleveland, Ohio,which hosts the event.
"I would like to apologize to Cleveland, Ohio, for not apologizing to them beforehand for not attending [the ceremony] in their city," he wrote, referring to his initial letter to the Hall.
The tweet provides a link to a lengthy letter in which Rose describes his surprise and gratitude at the positive feedback and support he's received since he announced he was declining the Hall of Fame's induction.
He adds that he's sorry for not offering Cleveland an apology earlier, as he does enjoy performing there, and "Cleveland does in fact Rock!"
What a clown! His apology doesn't even make sense. He was probably apologizing to the land and buildings that make up Cleveland. It certainly wasn't for the fans. He would have made everyone wait until he was in the mood anyway. I wish we could experience the sane Axl who takes his meds for his mental disorder(s). Instead, all we get is crazy Axl who is all about himself. He was on a search for why he was inducted personally and could find no good reason? Cuckoo! He only pops out of his own clock at the stroke of midnight and everything he says is cuckoo. Get some help, Axl.
Hi there, You've performed a fantastic job. I will definitely digg it and personally suggest to my friends. I'm confident they will be benefited from this website.
We are a group of volunteers and opening a brand new scheme in our community. Your web site offered us with useful info to paintings on. You've done an impressive process and our whole community will probably be thankful to you.
No one cares about you anymore so shut your pie whole.
Axl who ?
Dont know anybody worth remembering with this name. Wait a sec..for the sweet love of my child,i cant for the life of me, remember where i have heard this name before . I guess, he is not worth those 2 or 3 grey cells
nobody cares what this has been, drug addict has to say.
Does anyone care that he snubbed Cleveland? The Mistake by the Lake will continue to decline further into obscurity with or without his apology.
You sound like a hater of that fine city, as you clearly cared enough to read the article.
He should have thought about that before he did his last minute bailout on the ceremony. Either be a man and respectfully decline early on or accept the consequences of your actions. He obviously realizes the stupidity of the way he handled it, providing more evidence that he was and has always been the problem, not Slash, Duff, Izzy, Steve, and Matt. As a Clevelander, I feel it was his right to not show, but it's also my right not to spend another dollar on anything he produces or any concert he shows up late to.
He's only sorry as an after thought....like....wow....I probably offended people who might by MY new music....then I will loss money on sales. Too little too late.
Axl Rose's gritty voice way back then was superb....it's what brought me to love GNR. at first.
Glad to know the other band members were more than happy to accept induction...
I was fortunate to be at the induction ceremony..guess what ? He was clearly not needed.
100% agreed! In addition, instead of apologizing...how 'bout not opening your stupid mouth in the first place. Then, no apologie needed!
Axl is a big ole blowhard! He's NOTHING without the other bandmembers. Course the other bandmembers do just FINE without HIM. That says a lot.
He should just go crawl under his rock & stay there. Love how he had to apologize for being such an a$$. Dude, too little too late. You've been an a$$ for a loooooooong time...like 20+ years!!!!!
Crazy as it may sound, Jesus paid the blood price for our brother Ahmed too. Receive and believe it and take in the fresh perspective a cleansed mind brings.
You're right, it does sound crazy.
hey jesus, welcome to the jungle!! SLASH IS GOD
Actually, it probably would be a better world if women ran things.
Somewhat agree...especially considering some of the bands in there... but would it have been that big a burden on him to go party with old bandmates for ONE night and celebrate a lifetime accomplishement? Taking credit for his part on one of the greatest rock and roll albums of all time?
You mean three of the greatest rock albums of all time. Use Your Illusion I & II are so underrated.
Why is he apologizing to people in Cleveland? They don't have special privileges to attend the closed event. Its not like tickets are on sale to anybody and its Cleveland area people going in general.
The RARHOF is a joke anyway. The idea of a HOF is fine but this this place just uses a secretive club of elitists choosing their personal preferences on who is "inducted". Its not like they are an actual authority on anything. Rock and roll and fame certainly aren't actual criteria judging by those who have been selected.
you are wrong tickets ARE available to just anybody. I am a nobody and I attended. You just had to buy tickets when they went on sale ($100 or $50) very attainable. Know what you are talking about before you spew such ridiculousness.
He needs to grow up and be the man, forget the past Always think forward postively!!! LIFE IS TOO SHORT
Man, the racism around here is insane– of course, I don't know why I'd go to the comments in the entertainment section of cnn.com looking for rational discourse.
You went looking for legitimate comments in the Marquee Blog? Are you serious? Please tell me you are joking, drunk, or just not paying attention. Comments on these blogs have not been rational since the storytellers took over the WYWW blogs.
Look at this American trying to talk French. Le sigh is incorrect terminology. If you were not so distracted by Lindsay Lohan's immoral displays you would have a clearer mind.
I wish I did have a Big Mac for lunch. That sound amazing! Oh, with some bacon on it too. Mmmmmm.
Slash? Is that you?
it rubs the lotion on its skin...
I was entertained by رهملا لتيليدلب
Everyone is so angry in their comments... ha ha, find humor in life.
You are entertained by my morals? Perhaps you should learn from America Sucks and myself.
More likely to find humor in your pants...
Pre-back massage by America Sucks or post-back massage? You might not be laughing if I get my massage.
I lived there for a while. Cleveland does not rock! It smells though! Especially down in the flats.
Jesus Christ was a moron.
Wrong religion. Wrong thread.
Hey رهملا لتيليدلب I'll give you a BIG Mac to choke on!
Sorry I do not accept such offers from immoral people. America Sucks is the only other person here who has good morals. The rest of you can go back to listening to Gaga Bieber.
America Sucks, let me have your Big Mac.
Hahaha! This is great! Thanks to the troll for the entertainment during my lunch break.
Make sure you don't choke on your Big Mac.
Judging by the comments here and his love for Prince, it's pretty apparent no one likes this clown.
Hey Squiggly – for musical entertainment, do listen to camel farts? Watch out – Uncle Ted Nugent is huntin' for your Middle Eastern ass – hahahaha!!!
One comment from a supposed Muslim and the hillybilly Americans come out in force.
Thank you America Sucks. We need to stand together and band against these immoral human beings.
Are you still okay for our private back rubbing session at 10 AM? I can start with your back and you can take mine afterwards. Then we can hit the spa and take the private room together.
Awww... what's the matter brown boy? Upset because no one is talking about Caput any more?
Dude, Tupac was so yesterday man. That article is over with. Let's stick with bashing this Arabic clown.
I haven't posted since this morning. My little troll has been busy again. I have no idea what you are talking about Tupac. Got the wrong person, AGAIN.
send him to Peoria
The LeBron James of rock? Poor Cleveland, they really need to find someone with a heart.
He is fat.
And what does all this have to do with axl rose..... smh
LA Times has some great photos of our soldiers posing with some of your brethren Hakeem Ali-Kumlalalalala, or at least what's left of your brothers.
So why have you not Martyred yourself yet? You seem a little old to have not yet blown yourself up. Prince? Who listens to Prince anymore?
Prince is the truth and the life. It was a shame his videos depicted such inappropriate and disgraceful things, but his music was a taste of heaven. Something you Americans don't understand anymore with your Lady Gaga and Rihanna.
Lets have a little Koran BBQ in honor of all the Middle Easterners here and their uplifting comments.
Say what you will about Axle, at least he was never caught on video doing the chicken dance. Thought we'd forget didn't you Vince?
Ha! Impostors posting. You tricky foreign devels.
Or is it me all along? Good to keep you Americans guessing. But of course I only speak truth when I post and the truth is you Americans are all too sad.
Ah Salami Lickem. Lickem ahn Likeum.
Middle Eastern women, especially Saudis, are so ugly they make German women look good.
Can't we go back to making fun of the terrorist guy?
I find you and behead you on YouTube!
Before I behead I will demoralize my body while watching a Prince music video.
Axl, grow up you middle aged three year old.
He must not have got my comment on the deal..... He is a bum. the Hall of fame is more for us than him, such a F-bombing baby!!!! screw him and his new band... so what he can bite the name, but cant honor the true band that got him to a place where he can fall far and hard.... what a Bee with an Itch
mohhamed was a fat slob who poked children... is that infidel-ish?
Here's a guy who should spend the rest of his life apologizing.
Even Cleveland doesn't care what Axl Rose thinks.
what a punk
I am in hall of fame you arent broken axl ...nanananana
May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits.
The Rock and Roll "Hall of Fame" is a marketing gimmick that should be taken about as seriously as the "world wrestling federation hall of fame".
Deep Purple, Rush and hell, even John Mellancamp aren't in it, but Neil Diamond is. That should give you an idea of what their idea of "Rock and Roll" is. Also, since they feel like inducting an obligatory Hip Hop act every year, Public Enemy should have been inducted before the Beastie Boys.
I take back my comment about Mellancamp not being inducted - apparently he was a couple of years ago - but that leaves several dozen ROCK bands that haven't been inducted into the hall of fame while high profile POP acts like Madonna and Neil Diamond are.
They aren't "Rock and Roll" anything.
It is the "Miscellaneous Music Hall Of Fame"
A REAL Rock & Roll HOF would only be rock music. Same for a Rap HOF or Country HOF. What a joke!
LOVE AXL ROSE AND CHINESE DEMOCRACY!!!
Ladies and gents...let me introduce you to the most arrogant and self-absorbed hole out there: Mr. Axl Rose. Dude...stop your whining and make amends with the original other 4. It's called being an adult...which you obviously lack the ability to do.
LOL at the commenter pretending to be an Arab :)
Rose has his head up his nether region, as usual, but the Hall of Fame is more like a tombstone than a tribute to rock7roll. I wish more musicians would say no thank you.
Axl Rose should not apologize to Cleveland. He should apologize to his mother , after all he forgot her kibble and bits.
Axl rose is a whiny baby. Guns n Roses should never have had this puts in the band to start with.
Say what you want about him as a person....he was and still is one of the best front men in the history of rock and certainly metal.
I dont like my boss as a person but I dont begrudge him acknowledgment of his abilities.
Agreed. Chinese Democracy was a war crime.
He really has room to talk...
He needs to apologize for more than that...walking out in the middle of shows, showing up too drunk or drugged to perform, not even showing up to concert venues with the rest of the band....oh yeah and Chinese Democracy.
He owes the biggest apology for that last one.
You're in the wrong comment section. You're needed in the Syria comment thread....oh wait, you dont give a hoot about others of your kind being killed. You're too concerned about "morals" and buttsecks.
Go throw some more acid in your wife's face. That'll teach her!
Ha! Is always good laugh coming here. Listen to Americans pretend they are having morales. If you perfect why you're country full of loose woman, and man wanting buttsēx with man? Answer is you not being perfect, and you're men are neutered.
People beleve what they wanting too. Often the response I get says more about them then me. You seeming nice though, peace be upon you.
and pox be upon you. Mohammed was a pedophile, it's a well-known fact. You keep your women covered, but when you come over here, you spend you time in strip clubs and bars. Shiites and Sunnis fight like Protestants and Catholics, both worshipping the same God, but hating each other. You call America Satan, when he lives in your hearts, you cowardly terrorists, killing innocents with bombs instead of fighting like men. I pi$$ on your grave and defile it with rotted bacon.
We keeping our woman covered because they chaste and respectful. They liking it that way. Westerners not understanding this, letting the woman parade about shamfully undressed. Our woman know they for making children, and dinner. Is obvious that you one of those buttsēx worshipers, Red.
No reason to pick sides, fu<k ya all, towel heads or not.
seems to me that all you Arab men prefer other men. That is why you have your women cover up....
It is true that all Arab men like buttsecks because Mohammed wrote it....Besides Mohammed was a goat raping, pedophile...how ya like me now, beeeotch!
Typical cowardly Muslim. I dare you to say something negative to one of our soldiers occupying your pathetic excuse for a country
Should you not be makings sure Ben Roethlisberger is not raping anyone, instead of being insulting religion?
Stop pretending to be someone you're not. You seem to know so much about "American" ways and about Ben Roethlisberger of all people... let's face it. You're an unemployed fat slob sitting behind your computer, probably looked up the name on some foreign site and made a name of yourself. You get points for creativity but nothing else. Your trolling is so lame that it makes me want to puke.
My daughters husband had went to Pittsburgh for schooling. He tell me the city is toilet and about quarterback rapist. Beleve, and puke in, what you wish.
it's obvious to all of us what a pile of pig vomit you are. If you are going to come here and insult us, have the good graces to correct your spelling and grammar before you post. Besides, if you are so superior to us, why do you still wipe your a$$es with your left hand instead of using toilet paper like the rest of us? Your men a$$fu(k little boys and call it normal, and you keep your women covered because most of them are ugly as camels. Why don't you come up to Wisconsin and insult me in person? Oh yeah, it's because you are a coward. There are no 72 virgins waiting for you in heaven, just the fires of hell as your reward for getting it totally wrong. I would personally like to cram your stupid mouth full of bacon before I separate your head from your shoulders with a hacksaw that my dog pi$$ed on. I f@rt in your general direction.
Our nukes are coming, will your girlie men be ready?
It is being like 10000 miles from here to US, too far to travel just for telling off one fat drunk American. You sounding upset. You sure this not you're wife typing for you? Ah, how could forget. Western men do woman bidding. I surprised she letting you on computer at all.
I like to make love to donkeys while worshipping my false God.
I bet Ali Baba is more a Slash man.
Where'd Ali Baba go? Please, his insight into the music industry and women's issues is facinating.
Hey, what's the latest cassette tape you got over there in sand landl, broski?
Who cares? He sucks...G'N'R sucked and still sucks. I've heard cats in heat that sound better than this caterwauling moron.
Nice spelling, babbie... Why don't you leave us alone and go blow up a building or something, terrorist...
He looks like old women. In fact most you're rock stars look this way. It not surprise you idolize them, since you letting woman run you're lifes. Do they wipe for you to, little Western babbies?
Did your mother have any children that lived?
You need a burqua for your women because who wants to see a unibrow?
Wiping for men would require that we take their crap...and American women, don't take crap. WE have the guts, intelligence, and backbone to stand up for ourselves. We women don't run the life of men here and we don't allow men to run our lives either. WE are equals! But you would know nothing about equality...because the thought of intelligent, capable women scares the hell out of you. One day your women will show you just how capable they are...and that day is coming fast!
You need to go back to your sheep, haji..dirka dirka
i subject you to a thousand beatings with the bottom of my shoe for your insolence!
I keep hearing that Muslims become terrorists because most of their lives suck. Is that true?
Well, it's reassuring to know that trolls exist in middle eastern culture too!
Yes, they do wipe our butts, and each square of toilet paper has an image of Muhammad on it, although the image can be hard to see, what with the poopee smeared on it.
Not only do you use your left hand to wipe, you apparently type with it as well.
F U moron.
at least our men don't poison little girls because they're afraid they'll learn to read! wow! what a threat to society. keep living in sand dunes throwing rocks at people trying to hold women down. If the so called men there would let the women take over perhaps you'd come out of the dark ages and actually flourish as a region & culture. also, maybe the rest of the world wouldn't hate you.
Of course, but then you have your manfreinds do it for you because you like them to dress in burqas and because you poisoned all your women.
Western babies kick your a** every time. You are afraid of women that is why you have to subjugate them so. Your women are stronger and smarter than you. Some day we will turn your entire population into a pile of rubble.
Wish I could pronounce your name, but it's probably all clicks and pops.
Your women are GREAT!!
All beaten up and covered up!
Here we are free to look how we choose.
So nice that you are getting the attention you crave. Didn't your mommy hug you enough when you were a "babbie"?
loser... That's all, just loser!
only the good ones
Your women have bald heads and handlebar mustaches? I may owe you an apology, sir. From now on, I will applaud middle eastern men for covering up their women.
Typical inbred... I take you are either married to your cousin or, like the Profit, a 6 year old girl... will you wait for her to turn 9 before you consumate the marriage?
Tell your wife, mother, sisters, and daughters to stop calling me. I've already used them.
Oops. Did you say something little boy? Sorry, I was too busy burning the Koran and drawing Mohammed going down on Jesus.
I'm sure we would be happy to bomb your little country back to the dark ages, but it appears that you have never left.
Cute name. Is that kindergarten scribbling or a real language?
How would you write out idioto?
Too bad Camel screwing idiots like yourself still walk the earth. The idiot Mohammad was nothing but a pedophile and us "Westerners" cannot wait until you filthty smelling freaks want to start Jihad...we are prepared and you better have some tread on those sandals that can outrun a .50 cal!
Your mom wipes for me
Actually the woman in American will stand up and kick our husband's ect in the face if they try degrate us like you do your women over there in that sand trap you call home. So come over to America and try to treat us like you treat your ....... Wont happen
And you treat your women like property that's less than worthless. Your culture should be wiped of the planet.
You have to pay extra to get them to wipe you, Achmed.
so what your saying is you are gay? because why would any man need a woman if they are so far above them...although calling you gay would be an insult to real men that are gay!
I KEEL YOU!
Don't you have citizens to murder and kill?
Funny that a towel headed moron like you even comments on blogs like this. You must be ready to come out of the closet..................you'll have to lose the towel though.
Does anybody else hear a dog barking?
Why don't you learn how to speak and spell ENGLISH, if you're going to shoot your mouth off, you idiot? Do us all a favor, and stay the hell over in your own country, that probably ends with "stan", and keep your idiot comments to yourself.
Shut up slag-ho.
Nope, just your mother. She does all my wiping
You ARE a woman. I looked up that scribble you call a name, and it translates to "Sarah". Way to go chick!
Shut up there, little mud baby.
So TRUE!! We really should keep our women in sacks with just eye-slits cut out, rape them and then execute them like you Muslims do! That's a much better way to treat women, right?
You wipe with your hand you caveman.
Did you go to school in August?
Nice grammar, dipshiite.
What's the matter?,,,,didnt you get your McDonalds this morning,,,,,oh thats right, you dont have them over there because we turned your place into a parking lot,,,,your a freaking idiot. In fact , I bet you dont even know what western culture is about because you can barely even write! ( I am actually astounded that you can read),,,,,if your that proud of your culture , how do you even know what 'Rock and Roll" is about,,,,dont you listen to that jiberish of cymbals clanging together and some chick in a burqa wailing in the background because she is about to get her head cut off for being out after 6pm. You can't even begin to talk about what 'Rock and Roll" means to our society and what the basis of freedom is in this country. Or do you actually live in America and claim to be whatever that scribble you call a name is supposed to mean!
Go back to Iran u RAG HEAD!
You stupid rag head!
I think you're a little jealous that our rock stars are prettier than your hairy burka-wearing cows you ahve to reproduce with.
Dang straight we do, this is the USA baby...welcome to the Jungle....
Yes, wish we all could be Neaderthals with no self control and full of hate like you.
Hey Raghead, should you not be cutting my grass?
Wow! They still let you guys on the internet?
Go suicide bomb your mom's house
We have an idiot alert!
You're just plain stupid, yet strangly amusing.
Jihad!Jihad!Jihad! Durka durka durka. Shut up.
If you're going to post...use proper ENGLISH and proper GRAMMER!
They should have replaced him with an Axel Rose hologram.
Say hi to Benjy for me
no kidding – its cheaper too.
Well, Im sorry that he's sorry that Clevland is sorry for not attending.
The hologram would have more of a personality than that loser.....he's just a voice without them.
@Edmund – Will do. Im spray painting him bright purple as we speak. Im into the "Grimace" look right now.
LOL, ain' that the truth!!!
