Guns N' Roses' new paradise city is Cleveland: The Axl Rose-fronted rockers are among the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 2012 inductees, along with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Beastie Boys, and late singer/songwriter Laura Nyro, who wrote such classics as "Wedding Bell Blues." Also in the mix: "Mellow Yellow" singer Donovan and British rock group The Small Faces/The Faces, of which both Rod Stewart and Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood were members. Both Stewart and Wood are already in the Hall of Fame, the AP notes, making this their second induction. The ceremony is April 14. (More Guns N' Roses stories.)
