The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will induct Axl Rose with Guns N' Roses even though he has refused the honour.

The 50-year-old co-founder of the group - who has been locked in a feud with former band mate Slash for the last 15 years - insists he will not attend the ceremony in Cleveland, Ohio, on Saturday (14.04.12) and does not want his name to be inducted in his absence but organisers say they will continue as planned.

A spokesperson told E! News: ''We are sorry Axl will not be able to accept his induction in person. We are looking forward to still inducting Guns N' Roses this weekend and will proceed forward with our original plan whether Axl is present or not.''

In an open letter to the Hall of Fame, Axl said he initially felt ''honoured'' and ''excited'' by the invitation, and hoped some good would come out of it.

However, after being, ''polite, courteous and open to an amicable solution in our efforts to work something out,'' Axl decided to boycott the event.

He explained: ''Since the announcement of the nomination we've actively sought out a solution to what, with all things considered, appears to be a no win, at least for me, 'damned if I do, damned if I don't', scenario all the way around.''

Confirming his intent to stay away, he said: ''I respectfully decline my induction as a member of Guns N' Roses to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

''I strongly request that I not be inducted in absentia and please know that no one is authorised nor may anyone be permitted to accept any induction for me 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.''

Axl continues to tour and record with Guns N' Roses, but is the only original member.
