The next music awards banquet we are looking forward to is the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductions on Apr 14th. Pulse of  Radio reports Guns N’ Roses keyboardist Dizzy Reed has told Billboard  all five original members of the band will be present when the group is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. Reed revealed, “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. I’m just going to go in with a good attitude and a clear head and a grateful heart.” I wonder who their manager is now?  Someone told me some dude in Brazil.
