The classic line up of Guns N' Roses will reunite to attend their induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame in April.

The band will be inducted along with the Faces/Small Faces, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Beastie Boys at a ceremony in Cleveland, Ohio, on April 14, and keyboardist Dizzy Reed has said that all those who contributed to the band's seminal album 'Appetite For Destruction' will be there.

Speaking to Billboard, Reed, who joined the band in 1990 and remains in the line-up to this day, said when asked who would be attending the ceremony: "I know that all the original band is going to be there. I don't know exactly what's going to go down. It's one of those things I'm sure will all come together and be really cool."

Reed added though that no talks had taken place about the band's classic line-up actually playing together on the night and that he and frontman Axl Rose had not contacted former members Slash, Duff MacKagan or Steven Adler about the possibility of performing together at the ceremony.

He said of this: "Honestly, we haven't spoken about it. I don't know when or why or how to bring it up. It's not an everyday sort of thing. So we haven't really talked about it, but I'm sure we'll have to at some point."

Reed also said that he thought the band's current line-up would continue to work on new material after they complete a planned summer tour of Europe.

He said of this: "There are some clamoring and rumours that we might be getting some material together here after we do this run, so we'll see what happens. There was so much material that didn't make it onto 'Chinese Democracy'. From what I remember there were a lot of really cool songs; I can only hope that some of that stuff does resurface and get worked out."
