Twisted Sister star Dee Snider has slammed Axl Rose for snubbing his Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction, insisting the GUNS N' ROSES frontman is "screwed up".
Rose has written to officials at the Hall of Fame declining the induction and revealing he won't be attending Saturday's (14Apr12) gala in Cleveland, Ohio - and his stand has annoyed rocker-turned-radio host and TV personality Snider.
Interviewing Rose's former bandmate Slash at the Revolver Golden Gods awards in Los Angeles on Wednesday (11Apr12), the We're Not Gonna Take It singer, said, "Someone just told me that it's official Axl is not gonna sing at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, and I said it's c**p. I said, if he can't put this stuff aside for an event like that, for a recognition like that, to do the cool thing, and just in respect of what you guys have done, I think it's totally screwed up."
Slash refused to comment on Rose's decision not to attend the Hall of Fame ceremony, but added, "I'll be there."
In his letter to officials at the museum, Rose stated that his decision was "personal" and added that the induction honour had left him in an awkward position.
He wrote, "This letter is to help clarify things from my and my camp's perspective. Neither is meant to offend, attack or condemn... 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."
Slash, Duff MCKagan, Steven Adler and Matt Sorum are expected to take the stage after Green Day inducts Guns N' Roses into the Hall of Fame on Saturday night.
The class of 2012 inductees also includes the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys, The Faces and the Small Faces, Laura Nyro and Donovan.
