What do Rob Zombie, Neil Young, Bette Midler, John Legend and Elton John have in common?

They’ll all be onstage in New York in March, along with Paul Simon, Lloyd Price and the Doors’ John Densmore, welcoming the latest class of inductees into the Rock and Roll of Fame, hall officials will announce Tuesday.

Zombie has been tapped to welcome in one of his musical forebears, shock-rock pioneer Alice Cooper; Young will induct fellow iconoclast Tom Waits; John will bring in his friend and recent collaborator Leon Russell; and Simon will deliver remarks on Neil Diamond. Legend inducts Dr. John, Midler will handle Darlene Love and Densmore gets Elektra Records founder Jac Holzman, who signed the Doors and launched their recording career.

The ceremony is scheduled for March 14 at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.

  1. Fell in love w/Ms. Love while watching the Rock&Roll Hall of fame special on HBO last year. What a voice, what a talent! I thought, “why haven’t I heard this woman’s voice before?!””
    Anyhoots, hubby & I thought we might attend this event. However, the tix are $2,000.00 buckeroos – each! I thought, hell, for that kind of $$, I could take in 2 spring picnics and a hulaween. I guess I’ll be catching the show when i t airs on the 20th – LOL!!
