Former GUNS N' ROSES drummer STEVEN ADLER has vowed never to talk to Axl Rose again following the singer's decision to snub his Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction as a founding member of the band.
Hopes for a Guns N' Roses original line-up reunion at the ceremony in Cleveland, Ohio earlier this month (Apr12) were dashed after Rose declined to attend the music museum's annual gala.
His former bandmates Duff MCKagan, Slash and Adler did attend - and the drummer insists he can't forgive Rose for the no-show.
He tells Rolling Stone magazine, "I was hoping that the five of us would have been there to play and show our respect to the fans, but the three of us who really do care about what our fans think and how much they’ve done for us were there, and we showed our love and respect.
"This is the only thing I’m going to say about Axl, and this is the last thing I’m ever going to say, ever... I feel blessed and thankful that he was a part of my life for that chapter of my life, but that’s it. That’s it. I have no desire to know him or work with him or do anything with him again.
"I think it’s disrespect... Basically, he told everybody in the world: "F**k you, I don’t give a s**t what you think."
