Tupac, Joan Baez inducted into Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

20 April, 2017, 08:00 | Author: Benny Bass

The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame opened its doors on 7 April to induct Pearl Jam, Tupac Shakur, Yes, Journey, Electric Light Orchestra and Joan Baez into its museum.

Letterman was named a last-minute fill-in as Pearl Jam's inductor this week after Neil Young fell ill and had to back out of the show.

"The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is thrilled that David Letterman has agreed to induct Pearl Jam this Friday night at the 32nd Annual Induction Ceremony".

Pearl Jam's first album Ten came out in late 1991, and they were the crowd favourites at the Barclays Center in NY.

Harris pointed out that Journey's popularity with music fans was made clear a year ago when the band "ran away with" the Rock Hall's online public vote. I know Neil Young was supposed to be here and people are saying to me like I had something to do with it. They started with Alive before moving on to Given To Fly, Better Man and Young's Keep On Rockin' In The Free World.

In addition, Perry thanked the fans: "You put us here".

It was announced in December that Journey would be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. His last live performance with the band was in 1991.

During his time with the band, Pearl Jam released their second and third studio albums, Vs. and Vitalogy. "They reminded me of the "Star Wars" cantina band only with lots more hair", Harrison recalled. Rush's Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson will induct prog rock legends Yes, while Jackson Browne will be on hand to induct Joan Baez.

Neal Schon, clearly moved, said: "This is a long time coming, I thought this would never happen. this is all about you, the fans".

Singer-songwriter Pharrell Williams spoke in honour of Nile Rodgers, a legendary producer and songwriter who has worked with a who's-who list of musical greats, including Madonna, Diana Ross, David Bowie, Daft Punk and Lady Gaga.

Apparently, Snoop also shared a amusing story about going parasailing with Pac that we will just need to wait and hear about when HBO airs the ceremony on April 29.
