Open Arms — Journey: You mean to tell me this prom anthem never went to #1? In fact, Journey never had a #1 hit? “Don’t Stop Believin'” did worse?

AXL ROSE BLOWS GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY (VIDEO)

Gilby Clarke, Matt Sorum, Duff McKagan, Slash and Steven Adler, pictured here, all showed up to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Saturday in Cleveland, OH, to accept their honor of being apart of Guns N Roses at one time.

Not truly pictured here who should have been, is Axl Rose (falsely inserted in on far right in photo), who used to sing for the original Guns N’ Roses band, but then formed his own newer version of GnR. Myles Kennedy, who is not in the photo, sang at the concert last night, in place of Rose.

Both former GNR drummers Steven Adler and Matt Sorum both showed up, being cool to one another. Guitarist Gilby Clarke, who replaced GNR’s Izzy Stradlin on guitar back in the early 90’s, played in the concert last night with the guys as well.

When “Green Day” singer Billie Joe Armstrong delivered the GnR introduction speech, he insulted the audience when they were booing Axl Rose’s name. Armstrong said to the crowd, “Shut up. He was the greatest frontman to ever step in front of a microphone.” He paused, then added: “But he is … crazy. And I can vouch for that.”

Chris Rock was also hired to do some introductory speaking, and took a hilarious stab at Rose as well saying to the crowd, “A lot of people are disappointed that Axl Rose isn’t here, but let’s face it, even if he was going to be here, he still wouldn’t be here yet.” Rose is known for being late to shows.

The reformed band played songs “Mr. Brownstone”, “Sweet Child O’ Mine” and “Paradise City”. Other inductee band “Red Hot Chili Peppers” also played later on the night around 1 a.m. Other inductees were Beastie Boys, Donovan, the Small Faces and Faces, and Laura Nyro.

‘Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Support Obama Campaign

The band “The Red Hot Chili Peppers” is set to play a free concert for Obama ‘phone bank’ volunteers Sunday, since the band will already be in Cleveland, Ohio Saturday, as they are being inducted into the “Rock and Roll Hall-of-Fame”.

The ‘Obama and Biden’ Democratic team, decided to bride phonebank volunteers with a free RHCP concert, and in return, the campaign is getting phonecalls made out to ‘neighbors to prepare for the Obama-Biden upcoming canvass launch’.

On Obama’s campaign site, the event’s page shows that the volunteer spots are all filled, which means the RHCP concert is going to be packed.

The free concert takes place at Cleveland’s “House of Blues”.
