CLEVELAND - The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony didn’t miss Axl Rose at all.
The rowdy celebration, which in past years has included awkward moments, touching tributes and unforgettable performances, rocked on without Rose, the Guns N’ Roses frontman who may one day regret skipping a night when 6,000 fans, 1,400 guests and many of music’s biggest stars partied in Public Hall with the class of 2012.
Hard rockers Guns N’ Roses — minus Rose — headlined this year’s eclectic group of inductees. Others being enshrined are the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Beastie Boys, folk icon Donovan, late singer-songwriter Laura Nyro and British bands the Small Faces and Faces.
Before the ceremony started with a blistering performance by Green Day, Chili Peppers lead singer Anthony Kiedis said it was strange to be enshrined while on tour.
