Of all of this year’s inductees to the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame, the highest drama factor circles around, who else, Guns N’ Roses! While the big question of “will they or won’t they” reunite to perform at the event remains, we now have confirmation that all five original members of the fractured group will be in attendance.

There is no second guessing the fire of songs like ‘Hell Bent For Leather,’ ‘Livin After Midnight,’ or ‘Breaking The Law.’ 1986′s ‘Turbo Lover,’ however, is a different kettle of stew.
