On Tuesday at L.A.â€™s Century Plaza, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will induct ll new music legends â€” those great divas of rhythm, blues, soul and early â€œrock influenceâ€ Ruth Brown, Dinah Washington, E tta J a m e s …the groups Cream, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Sly and the Family Stone, the Doors, Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers … Irish soul singer Van Morrison …producer Milt Gabler, a legend in the music industry … and Dick Clark, who is beyond legendary.
Now usually the eveningâ€™s presenters are kept under wraps until the night of the event itself. But we are here to puncture that balloon
Appearing to pay tribute, entertain and hand out awards: Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jamâ€™s Eddie Vedder, Bette Midler, Stevie Wander, Bonnie Raitt and Billy Crystal. It should be quite a bash particularly as this has always happened in New York City. But L.A. got the nod this year, and everybody who is anybody in La La Land is fighting to attend.
