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

09 April 2017, 03:02 | Sue Hudson

Rush's Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson will induct prog rock legends Yes, while Jackson Browne will be on hand to induct Joan Baez. Letterman said during his speech that he first met the band in 1988.

Eddie Vedder has changed his tune on how to live rock star life.

"Anything can be obtainable, " he said. "If the Chicago Cubs can win the World Series, humans can solve climate change", although "we don't have 108 years to wait". CBS caught me using a copier and fired me. I can't even begin to tell you what an honor and a privilege it is to be out of the house.

Any special guests: Of course, it's rock and roll. "The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is thrilled that David Letterman has agreed to induct the band this Friday night at the 32nd Annual Induction Ceremony".

British progressive rock group Yes, and Seattle-based grunge band Pearl Jam were also among the 2017 inductees, who were chosen by more than 900 voters drawn from the music industry.

"It was for me completely new music", he said. "It was March of 1986 when I had my first close encounter of the ELO kind". She also said earning the Rock Hall of Fame honour would help young people learn who she is, and what she's accomplished. And in typical Baez fashion she brought both humor and politics to the fore. "My granddaughter had no idea who I was until I took her backstage at a Taylor Swift concert, and then I got respect from her". "She got a selfiie an autograph and a newfound respect for her grandmother".

The company had revenue of $32.60 million for the quarter, compared to analyst estimates of $32.54 million. The stock has a 50 day moving average of $1.17 and a 200 day moving average of $1.34.

"I first met most of the people involved in Pearl Jam, they were in a band called Mother Love Bone". Snoop Dogg accepted on behalf of Tupac, calling him the greatest rapper ever. Well, the Rock Hall made a lovely, inspired choice by having East Coast R&B balladeer Alicia Keys honor the late West Coast rap god with a medley of snippets of 'Pac songs (including "I Ain't Mad at Cha" and "Ambitionz As a Ridah") while effortlessly riffing on the piano, talking about her love for the man and his music.

The Barclays Center went insane, clapping and hooting with as much fervor as they gave to the inductees as Fox waved and politely tried to ignore the attention.

One of the night's most anticipated performances belonged to Journey.

"You're the one who put us here", Perry said to the Journey fans, earning one of the night's loudest applauses.

"This was so long time coming, I thought it would never happen", said Schon, who spoke first for the band. Instead, Arnel Pineda sang lead as the band performed their hits, including "Don't Stop Believin'".

Being the friends that they are, Vedder reserved some time in his own induction speech for Letterman, mostly to set the record straight about that "Black" story.
