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

Snoop Dogg speaks during Tupac Shakur's induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on Friday. The band had been a staple on his CBS Late Show since 1996, when they made their debut performing the No Code tune "Hail, Hail".

Other inductees at the ceremony included Tupac Shakur, Joan Baez, Yes, ELO and Journey, while Nile Rodgers was handed a special lifetime achievement award by Pharrell Williams called the Award for Musical Excellence.

The Rock & Roll Hall Fame induction ceremony takes place tonight at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, and among the 2017 honorees are Journey, Yes, Electric Light Orchestra and Nile Rodgers. The "godfather of grunge" was slated to induct Pearl Jam into the Hall of Fame tomorrow (April 7). The Rock Hall announced on Wednesday that Young's absence is because of illness.

In honoring the band, Letterman referred to "Ten" as "a chinook coming out of the Pacific Northwest" and noted that it tapped into an unrest felt by many at the time. I was nearly 50 and even I felt pissed off!

Eddie Vedder from the newly inducted American group Pearl Jam was among performers at the multi-hour ceremony. (Prediction: Within the next 25 years Eddie Vedder, will become America's unchallenged troubadour king.) Even though Vedder's knee-buckling baritone has been parodied (and copied by many lesser lead vocalists), it remains deeply affecting, especially live, mainly because it's hard to believe such a godly voice can come out of such a tiny, handsome man.

They closed the multi-hour event with a group performance, and before that, Pearl Jam electrified with a performance of its well-known songs.

TMZ also reports that RUSH's GEDDY LEE, who will induct YES, along with bandmate ALEX LIFESON, will play bass - stepping in the shoes of the late CHRIS SQUIRE - for the band at the show.

"I can't begin to tell you what an honor and a privilege it is for me to be out of the house", he said. Alicia Keys paid tribute to him with a medley of his hits on the piano, followed by Snoop Dogg and T.I. rapping.

The induction of ELO, Yes and, especially Journey, were greeted with huge ovations, showing that the decision Rock Hall voters have made to embrace 1970s superstars, who have always been eligible but passed over, has been overwhelmingly popular. It was you. I love these people so much. "It's cool for me to see Seattle people get recognized".

The song proved to be durable, popping up on Young's feedback-slathered live Weld album in 1991 and playing during the close credits of Michael Moore's documentary Fahrenheit 9/11.

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