Faces, Guns N Roses Get RHOF Nod

The stage is set for a couple of highly anticipated reunions when the Rock Hall Of Fame holds it's annual induction ceremony in Cleveland on April 14.  Guns N' Roses might table the hatred between some members when the the group that blast on the scene with Appetite For Destruction officially enters the Hall.  There is no guarantee that Rock's poster boys for dysfunctionality will get together but if it doesn't happen at the induction ceremony it's a safe bet it never will.  Maybe billing it as a cage match will help. 
The other possible reunion is one that has been a perking possibility for the last couple of years - Rod Stewart with the Faces.  The induction of the Faces the first time the group was on the ballot will move Stewart and Rolling Stones guitarist Ron Wood into the ranks of artists enshrined twice.  The former front man for the band issued a statement calling the honor '...a hell of a good reason to reunite and celebrate with my old mates.'  
Also in are the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys, Donovan, blues man Freddie King, Laura Nyro and promoter Don Kirshner.  Missing the cut: Heart, Joan Jett, War, Rufus, The Cure, the Spinners and old school hip-hop's Eric B. & Rakim.
