Ronnie Wood has claimed Guns N' Roses singer Axl Rose will one day regret snubbing an invite to tonight's (April 14) Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony.

Rose's band are due to be inducted by Green Day at the Cleveland, Ohio bash, but the singer is skipping the event after claiming he doesn't feel "wanted or respected" by his former bandmates.

But Wood, whose own band Faces are also being inducted tonight, argued that Rose should have swallowed his pride and showed up. The Rolling Stones man told Associated Press:

He'll think, 'I should have done it'. Drop all the qualms and all the differences.



Ironically, Wood's Faces bandmate Rod Stewart is also skipping the ceremony after getting flu. In a joint statement with organisers, Stewart said he was "absolutely devastated" to be missing out. Simply Red man Mick Hucknall will stand in for Stewart when the Faces play a short set at the ceremony.

Former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan has insisted it doesn't matter that Rose isn't showing up, while organisers have said although they are "sorry" about his snub, they will still be inducting him.

Ex-Guns N' Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler and Matt Sorum are all still expected to attend the show, but are unlikely to perform. Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys, late singer-songwriter Laura Nyro and folk legend Donovan are also being inducted this year.
