Guitar Center has announced the upcoming induction of Grammy Award-winning hard rock innovators KORN into the retailer’s historic RockWalk. The private, invite-only induction ceremony is set to take place on Tuesday, October 8, at noon at Guitar Center‘s Hollywood location on Sunset Boulevard.

After two Grammy Awards, eleven MTV Video Music Award nominations, and millions of records sold, the members of KORN will take their place amongst fellow rock idols in Guitar Center‘s RockWalk. Adding to the celebratory nature of the day, KORN will also release its hotly anticipated eleventh studio album, “The Paradigm Shift”, on October 8.

“When you look at the names of the other people inducted here, all you can say is, ‘Wow!’ What an honor!” says singer Jonathan Davis of KORN.

Adds guitarist Munky: “When we started out, we were five guys in a garage with a dream. I’d like to think we tried our best to create some great music and an innovative sound, but to be honest, we are truly humbled to be included here.”

KORN is about as innovative and influential as they come,” says Dave Weiderman, Chairman of Guitar Center‘s RockWalk. “They have been purveyors of metal’s progression since their formation, and are even credited with creating the ‘nu metal’ subgenre. For these reasons, and many more, KORN is exactly the type of band the RockWalk is here to honor.”

Guitar Center‘s RockWalk is dedicated to honoring those artists who have made a significant impact and lasting contribution to the growth and evolution of rock ‘n’ roll, blues and R&B. As the newest RockWalk inductees, KORN‘s handprints will reside alongside the handprints, signatures, and faces of other equally accomplished musicians and innovators such as Eric Clapton, George Martin, Jimmy Page, IRON MAIDEN, Carlos Santana, Johnny Cash, VAN HALEN, AC/DC, AEROSMITH, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, B.B. King, Stevie Wonder, RUN-D.M.C. and QUEEN, among numerous others.

Well are they or aren’t they?! Slash has stated that there will not be an original Guns N’ Roses lineup performance at this year’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Induction event.

“We’re not playing, Slash told the QMI Agency. “I would imagine that they asked us to play, but I know that we’re not playing.”

Slash added that he expects former GN’R drummer Steven Adler to be there, too. “I could be positive Steven will be there,” he muses. “Steven wouldn’t miss it.” He was less certain of the attendance of the rest of GN’R’s classic lineup, specifically the band’s lead singer Axl Rose. The two have not spoken in years and Rose continues to hold a hostile stance toward his former bandmate.

“I don’t know,” Slash said when asked if Axl will make an appearance at the induction ceremony. “I would assume so but we haven’t talked about it.”

Ex-Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan told RollingStone.com that there has been “no communication” about the original members of the band performing together when the group is inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Asked if he knew what was going to happen at the ceremony, McKagan answered, “I don’t. I know I’m going to go. I can’t, at all, speak for anybody else. And won’t. I’ll be there with bells on.” But he added, “There’s been no communication about anyone playing. There was probably a day in the mid-1990s where I would have tried to gather the troops, but I’m just not that guy anymore. It’s too frustrating to change anyone else . . . I’m not even sure I’d want to change how anyone else sees a situation.”

On whether he hoped that the original lineup would perform together at the event, McKagan said, “I think it would be killer. Do I hope to? That’s a tricky question. It would be awesome. You have those day dreams like, ‘We’ll go up and play ‘Nightrain’ and ‘Brownstone’ and throw down the microphone and drop off! That’ll be killer!’ But I doubt that’ll happen.”

Hmmm. Meanwhile, we’re all ridiculously excited about the Classic Rock Slash ‘Apocalyptic Love’ fanpack, which is released on May 21!
