Axl Rose apologizes to his fans and Cleveland
Guns N’ Roses singer Axl Rose has issued an apology via a letter on the band’s website to the citizens of Cleveland on Tuesday after turning down his induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
"I would like to apologize to Cleveland, Ohio for not apologizing to them beforehand for not attending [the ceremony] in their city. I think they know how much I genuinely love performing there. Cleveland does in fact Rock!” Rose writes.
He goes on to say how relieved he is for his fans supporting his decision.
“With such a generous outpouring of solidarity from fans, media outlets, writers and other artists, I'm truly humbled, blown away and unbelievably relieved! To be honest, I thought it would go the other way and was just hoping to weather the storm. As I said, I sincerely didn't want to disappoint anyone. It gets old being the outlaw even if ‘it's only rock and roll’,” Rose writes.
