Former GUNS N’ ROSES members Steven Adler and Matt Sorum spoke to Rolling Stone magazine about being inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and the fact that some of their musical heroes have yet to be honored. Check out the video interview below.
“It’s such an honor to be inducted into the Hall Of Fame, but then I found out that KISS isn’t in here, and then I found out the other day that RUSH isn’t in there,” says Adler. “They’ve got to be inducted. If it wasn’t for those bands and a couple other ones, there wouldn’t be a GUNS N’ ROSES.”
Former GUNS N’ ROSES guitarist Slash told The Canadian Press that he was honored t be inducted into the Rock Hall but also a bit turned off given that the Hall has overlooked so many other great rock bands.
“It’s sort of a bittersweet thing too because there’s so many artists that aren’t inducted, that came way before GUNS did, that really actually almost deserve more to be in there and they’re not in there,” the guitarist said, listing off Canadian band RUSH, DEEP PURPLE, CHEAP TRICK and KISS as examples. “So it’s really hard to sort of feel victorious … that, to me, just doesn’t seem right.”
