David Letterman replaces Neil Young at Rock Hall show


The ceremony will be held at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. One of his craziest stunts came at Pearl Jam's 1992 set at the Pinkpop Festival in Landgraaf, Netherlands.

On Friday, April 7, legendary rock band Pearl Jam was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Jann Wenner, whose speech opened the show, said of Berry, "no one would be in this room if it wasn't for this man".

"I've been gone a long time, I understand that, but you've never not been in my heart, " he said.

"Maybe the most important reason we came tonight is not to receive this honor, but to honor those who have worked so hard for this band, to help it function", Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard said, before rattling off a list of more than 40 names.

His wife, Jill, was teary-eyed in the audience as fans continued to cheer.

Vedder also paid tribute to Chance the Rapper for "all the work you're doing in Chicago" and said, "If you're somehow watching, my daughter Olivia loves you".

Snoop Dogg was on hand to collect Tupac's trophy, more than two decades after he was shot dead in Las Vegas.

Earlier, Shakur was inducted by Snoop Dogg with a speech that was both touching and playful. Also performing are Alicia Keys, Mary Chapin Carpenter and the Indigo Girls.

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

Former Journey frontman Steve Perry reunited on stage with his "Don't Stop Believin'" bandmates for the first time in 25 years to screams and hugs of joy, while Roy Wood of Electric Light Orchestra turned up for the NY ceremony 45 years after leaving the English band. His last live performance with the band was in 1991.

Young, who was originally slated to induct Pearl Jam but pulled out due to illness, was absent.

"My granddaughter had no clue who I was until I took her backstage to a Taylor Swift concert", said Baez, who added that her granddaughter took a selfie with Swift and now had "newfound respect for her grandmother".

The induction of folk legend Baez, which inductor Jackson Browne called "long, long overdue", actually seemed well timed, as protest music grows in popularity. He thanked his brothers in Pearl Jam, and in his other band, Soundgarden (another glaring omission from the Rock Hall, by the way).

"So tonight we say farewell to the founding father", Mr. Wenner said, before introducing a video montage honoring Berry, who was 90 when he died near his St. Louis home.

Disco producer Nile Rodgers, the man behind 1970s hits like "Le Freak" and "We Are Family", was presented with a special award for musical excellence.

The show will be broadcast in an edited form at 8 p.m. April 29 on HBO.
