Pearl Jam, Tupac, Yes, Journey to be inducted into Rock Hall

After it was announced that Neil Young was confirmed to induct Pearl Jam into the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame, Young has had to cancel his appearance at the ceremony.

Nile Rodgers will receive a special honor at the event held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. It will be broadcast at 8 p.m. ET on April 29.

The veteran grunge act was inducted by the heavily bearded David Letterman, who was a last-minute replacement for the ailing Neil Young.

That probably ruled out the likes of Bethenny and Sonja attending. "Maybe Sonja feels like she missed the yacht". Luann is about to get married to Tom and she's making her guest list of 250 people and checking it twice.

Pearl Jam is hardly alone in that sentiment when it comes to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

"Now in the new political cultural reality in which we find ourselves, there is much work to be done, where empathy is failing and sharing has been usurped by greed and lust for power", she said, urging the crowd to "double, triple and quadruple" attempts at empathy. And they transcended all that stuff because they were a band like the way the Rolling Stones transcended the English Invasion thing. He did, however, point out it was "bittersweet" to take over for late Yes bassist Chris Squire, who passed away in 2015 and didn't live to see his band recognized.

One of the night's most anticipated performances was Journey's.

"I'm aware I'm speaking to many young people who with out the induction would have no clue who I am, " said Baez, now 76.
