The classic Guns N' Roses lineup will all attend the band's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, it has been confirmed.

Keyboard player Dizzy Reed suggested to Billboard that Axl Rose would be joined by Appetite for Destruction players Slash, Izzy Stradlin, Duff McKagan and Steven Adler.

"I know that all the original band is going to be there," Reed said. "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."

Reed, who joined the band in 1990, is the longest-standing member of Guns N' Roses aside from frontman Rose.

Of whether he had discussed the ceremony with the singer, Reed said: "Honestly, we haven't spoken about it. I don't know when or why or how to bring it up.

"It's not an everyday sort of thing. So we haven't really talked about it - but I'm sure we'll have to at some point."

The ceremony takes place on April 14 in Cleveland. Other artists confirmed for induction this year include Red Hot Chili Peppers, Beastie Boys and Small Faces/Faces.

Rose has said that while he would be open to reuniting with guitarist Slash and bassist McKagan, he would rather continue to work with his current bandmates than drummer Adler and second guitarist Stradlin.

McKagan last year refused to rule out the possibility of rejoining his former band.
