Axl Rose was booed at last night's (April 14) Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame when his name was mentioned by Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong.

The Guns N' Roses singer snubbed the event in Cleveland, Ohio after claiming he doesn't feel "wanted or respected" by his former bandmates, who attended to be inducted.

According to Reuters, boos rang out across the venue when Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong asked the 6,000 in attendance "who was missing", as Ex-Guns N' Roses members Slash, Duff McKagan, Steven Adler and Matt Sorum were on stage accepting their award.

Armstrong then added:

Most singers are crazy, I can vouch for that. He is one of the best front men to ever touch a microphone. Sometimes you have to look back at chapters of your life to move forward.

Rose was the first artist to publically snub the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, where artists are chosen by a panel of 600 industry experts to be inducted, since the Sex Pistols refused to attend in 2006.

Meanwhile, Rod Stewart failed to appear at the 27th annual event, as he pulled out of reuniting with The Faces at the ceremony after becoming ill with the flu. Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall stepped in to sing with the band.

Red Hot Chili Peppers and Beastie Boys were among this year's fellow inductees, alongside folk legend Donovan and late singer-songwriter Laura Nyro.
