Footage of the majority of the original Guns N' Roses members performing at the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame has surfaced online.

Although singer Axl Rose failed to make an appearance and was booed for his absence at the Cleveland, Ohio ceremony, Slash, Duff McKagan and Steven Adler performed 'Appetite For Destruction' hits 'Mr Brownstone', 'Sweet Child O' Mine' and 'Paradise City' with Alter Bridge frontman Myles Kennedy.

They were also joined by later GNR members Matt Sorum and Gilby Clarke for the performance, footage of which you can watch by scrolling down and clicking below.

Rose snubbed the event after claiming he didn't feel "wanted or respected" by his former bandmates, who attended to be inducted. Former guitarist Izzy Stradlin also failed to make an appearance at the ceremony.

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.
