Axl Rose Turns Down Guns N’ Roses Rock Hall Induction – Music, Celebrity, Artist News | MTV

Ever since Guns N’ Roses were announced as Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees in December, speculation has swirled about just who from the band’s lengthy list of current (and former) members would show up at the ceremony.

Well, now we know who won’t: mastermind Axl Rose, who announced Wednesday (April 11) that not only does he have no plans to attend Saturday’s induction ceremony in Cleveland, but he wants nothing to do with the Hall at all.

“I won’t be attending … and I respectfully decline my induction as a member of Guns N’ Roses to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,” Rose wrote in a Facebook message. “I strongly request that I not be inducted in absentia and please know that no one is authorized, nor may anyone be permitted, to accept my induction or speak on my behalf. Neither former members, label representatives nor the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame should imply, whether directly, indirectly, or by omission that I am included in any purported induction of ‘Guns N’ Roses.’ ”

Rose added that his reasoning behind the message was “personal” and “neither meant to offend, attack or condemn” any GN’R members who decide to attend the induction. He also hinted that, since Guns were announced as inductees, he’d worked with Hall officials to find an appropriate solution to the very real problem of who would be inducted under the name of Guns N’ Roses, hoping to avoid “a complicated or awkward situation.”

But, apparently, no solution could be reached.

“I feel we’ve been polite, courteous and open to an amicable solution in our efforts to work something out,” Rose wrote. “Taking into consideration the history of Guns N’ Roses, those who plan to attend, along with those the Hall — for reasons of their own — have chosen to include in ‘our’ induction … and how those involved with the Hall have handled things … [it] doesn’t appear to be somewhere I’m actually wanted or respected.”

A spokesperson for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame did not respond to MTV News’ request for comment by press time.

Rose also used his open letter to (once again) put to rest any and all speculation of burying the hatchet with former members — like guitarist Slash or drummer Steven Adler, to name a few — and launching a full-scale reunion tour, writing:

“Time to move on. People get divorced. Life doesn’t owe you our own personal happy ending, especially at another’s — or, in this case, several others’ — expense,” he wrote. “Maybe we can get the ‘no show, grandstanding, publicity stunt, disrespectful, he-doesn’t-care-about-the-fans crap out of the way … no one’s taking the ball and going home. … From my perspective, in regard to both the Hall and a reunion, the ball’s never been in our court.

“In closing, regardless of this decision and as hard to believe or ironic as it may seem, I’d like to sincerely thank the [Rock Hall] board for their nomination and their votes for Guns’ induction,” he added. “More importantly, I’d like to thank the fans for being there over the years, making any success we’ve had possible and for enjoying and supporting Guns N’ Roses’ music. I wish the Hall a great show, congratulations to all the other artists being inducted, and to our fans, we look forward to seeing you on tour!”

Rock Kulture’s “Sobe Rock Invasion” Review

Rock Kulture’s “Sobe Rock Invasion” Review

By: Nando Tats

Twas just another night in Miami Beach, FL. Skanky outfits, extra small v-necks, shitty house music,overly priced tattoo parlors… Ahhhh, the glamour on Washington Avenue was flowing, and douche bags were flaunting their parents’ Beemers to the best of their ability.Upon arriving at Jazid at around 10pm, I was greeted by Rock Kulture’s Natalya and Alex. They were very courteous and helped each band finding their whereabouts. As musicians, our attention spam works a little something like this: “Can I park here? Can you watch my instruments? Is the bar open? Is that homeless guy, or is he in a band? Do they serve Ceviche here?”. At least that’s how my attention works…

The line-up for the night was as follows: Urban Rebel (Funk Deliciousness), BrandNamePunk (Pop/Punk Warriors), Dear Darling (Rock/Experimental Sweetness), Unmaskd (Rock / Alternative Sick Vocalistas), The Deadly Blank (Rock/Alternative Rawness), and The Nude Cap (Rock/Surf Drunken Good Time). The recipe was perfect; it was just what the live local music doctor had ordered.The crowd was settling in, and Jazid was becoming smaller and smaller. Drinks were flowing, cigarettes were being lit up and the mood was just right.

First up: “Unmaskd” – these dudes had their harmonies down to a science! The lead singer (Ju Rodriguez) looks like he could beat you to a pulp (which he probably could), but this dude had the most angelic voice. I hadn’t seen them before; however I was very impressed by what I heard. Their lyrics were uplifting, and the music… the music was heavy boy! HEAVY!

Second on the bill: “Dear Darling” – I immediately fell in love with their lead singer (Dama Vicke)… sweet Indie/Experimental melodies with a twist of sexy. The whole band dripped in sexiness. The progressions were tight, and the crowd was feeling it. Maybe I’m wrong, but I heard Pink Floyd meets Bjork. Am I wrong? Catch them live and prove me wrong. I’ve been a fan of Dama since the Huma Rojo days, and she never disappoints.

Third band on the bill: “The Deadly Blank” – or as the band likes to describe itself “Vintage rock with a modern roll”. That is actually a very accurate description. Think The Raconteurs meets Wolfmother.Think true rock-n-roll, think, think, think. Catch them live and prove me wrong.

Fourth on bill: “The Nude Cap” (my band) – the band that refuses to see babies vomiting on moneys. I can personally attest that this band is about partying and having a good time. Why not? So we got on stage, and couldn’t see a fucking thing because of poor lighting, but mainly because we were trashed. Well, not all of us, but mainly me. All right, only me… So I put my guitar down, tucked in my vagina and rocked the fuck out of Jazid. We had fun, did you? Yes you did. We rule, the end.

Fifth on the bill: “Urban Rebel” – Trip 6, Lac, and E, blew the roof of Jazid! These guys (and lady) are no joke. Funk / Groove / Rock: think Primus nips RHCP in the butt, while fingering Rage Against the Machine. All was working in their favor. Great sound, lighting, stage presence, and a very VERY precise tight set! Their special guest David De La Fe (a.k.a Freak, a.k.a Gracious Nipples) did not disappoint either, making an appearance in a few of Urban Rebel’s tunes. David has been a musician for the best part of his life, and it shows. Their guitarist for the night (whose name I’ve seem to have forgotten)brought it all together with only a few rehearsals, but just as tight as the other members in the band.

Last, but not least on the bill: “BrandNamePunk” – Now, this is the sound and attitude you want booked on your shows. Not only are Ricky, Marjorie, and Andy great musicians, they’re also a fun loving bunch.Their precise “brand” (get it?) of Pop/Punk puts New Found Glory, Green Day, Blink 182 to shame!Check out a little video called “Hopes and Dreams” where BrandNamePunk kidnaps Kristen Stewart (Twi-twat), and make her their love slave. Highly recommend you catch them live!!
So, will you be attending the next Rock Kulture event? Will you pay more attention to the bands mentioned above? Will you like this review? Was any of this offensive? Do you want to make love to me? Tu quiere Taco Bell?

I wrote this in a hurry without a spell check… so bring on the grammar police. I’ll have all your corrections and complaints filed under me nutsack.

Sincerely,

Your Nude King.

Virginia Key landmark Jimbo’s closes for good – Key Biscayne – MiamiHerald.com

[email protected]

Jimbo’s Place, a landmark Virginia Key fish shack and watering hole that had fallen on hard times in recent years, was closed Monday by the city of Miami.

The closing came at the request of Gail Araujo, representing the owner, James “Jimbo” Luznar, the city said.

Araujo, Luznar’s daughter, asked the city to secure the site to keep the public out while the family removes mementos and belongings, the city said.

Jimbo’s lured visitors with its shrimp and affordable ice-cold beers since the early 1950s. Over the years it has served as a backdrop for movies and television shows from Flipper in the 1960s to Dexter today.

But its power was cut off after a December 2009 electrical fire. Jimbo’s remained open on generator power, and customers could still sit outside enjoying the shrimp, smoked fish and cheap beer that were the mainstays of Jimbo’s menu.

Araujo made the final decision to close Jimbo’s. She told The Miami Herald last week that stress related to the lack of improvements at the site had caused health issues for both her parents.
