Guns N' Roses fans shouldn't hold their breath for a reunion of the original band members at this weekend's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony.
In an open letter released Wednesday the group's frontman Axl Rose says he doesn't plan to attend the ceremony in Cleveland and "I respectfully decline my induction as a member of Guns N' Roses to the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame."
Referring to the band's falling out in 1996, Rose, 50, says having the group inducted would be "somewhat of a complicated or awkward situation."

Welcome to the legal jungle, baby!
A source tells PEOPLE that Guns N' Roses frontman Axl Rose has been serving jury duty on a civil trial in Santa Monica, Calif.
The rocker's rep confirms that Rose, 49, indeed has been performing his civic duty – having completed jury duty service on Tuesday "after serving four days of the trial process," says his rep.
"It was relatively painless," says Rose, who just completed a U.S. tour with his band last month. "I was fortunate that everyone in the courthouse and jurors were all really great, plus I got to see daylight from a different prospect."

Fans of Guns N' Roses are about to get their wish: the rockers' long-awaited new album, Chinese Democracy, will be out Nov. 23 – and Dr. Pepper promises to make good on its promise to give everyone a free soda in honor of the release.
The deal was, the drinks were on the good doc if the CD – the band's first original album in 17 years – hit stores before the end of 2008.
Thirsty fans must register on the Dr. Pepper Web site on Nov. 23 – and on that day only – so they can receive a voucher that's good until February, reports Billboard.
Admits Tony Jacobs, vice-president of marketing for the soft-drink company: "We never thought this day would come."

OPPOSED: John Kennedy Jr. was said to be "upset" when Hillary Rodham Clinton announced she was running for the office of Democratic U.S. Senator from New York, a job that he wanted, according to author Laurence Leamer's new book, "Sons of Camelot." But the New York Post quotes Leamer as saying that Kennedy (who was killed in a 1999 plane crash) put his political ambitions on hold for Clinton because he was a gentleman.
