Salute to Chuck Berry opens Rock Hall ceremony


Pearl Jam went on to perform on the "Late Show" many times over the course of Letterman's tenure. Along with Tupac, also inducted (posthumously) on Friday, Pearl Jam are the first members of the Hall who began their recording careers in the 1990s.

Guitarist Neal Schon asked the crowd to illuminate their cell phones during Lights in honor of Perry.

While Perry was slated to be at the induction ceremony and on stage to accept the award, there were no plans for him to perform with the band. "Climate change is real - this is not fake news", he said.

David Letterman is a nation treasure. "That is not fake news, and we cannot be the generation that history will look back up on, and ask why didn't we do everything humanly possible to solve this crisis".

"Anything can be obtainable, " he said. The Chicago Cubs winning the World Series. "But we don't have 108 years".

Chuck Berry, known as the father of rock "n" roll.

"Hello, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!".

They were inducted alongside the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) and Journey during a concert in NY.

'Fun'-filled time during Easter egg hunt
Young Dean Knox, 2, was also out there, but he didn't let rules or enclosures keep him from grabbing the coveted Easter eggs. The hunt begins at 9 a.m.in front of Churchill County Middle School and is for ages 0-3, 4-6 and 7-9.

Following the performance the band was inducted by the Dhani Harrison, the son of the late George Harrison.

"Jeff was one of my father's dearest friends, " he said.

"To me, Tupac was first and foremost a homeboy".

In her acceptance speech 76-year old Baez called for global compassion. Not surprisingly. Baez took her moment with the microphone to send a political message. "She got a selfiie an autograph and a newfound respect for her grandmother". In 2015, Swift invited Baez onstage during her concert in San Francisco. "I know Neil Young was supposed to be here and people are saying". But getting serious again, he said, "When I got here, I remembered: 'Oh my God, what a gift live music is". Abbruzzese wasn't inducted to the Hall of Fame, and took to Facebook to vent his frustrations. The band appeared on his show numerous times. The Rock Hall's guidelines state that artists are eligible for induction 25 years after their first record's release, and since both acts released their debut in 1994, they've got a couple of years to go.

For almost four decades, Arnel Pineda has always wanted to meet Journey's original frontman Steve Perry.

Perry thanked all bandmates, including current vocalist Arnel Pineda and then the fans.

"When people work with me, they think that I'm the boss", he said. "I've been gone a long time but you've never not been in my heart". "That gives us all hope", Vedder said. Instead, it was Pineda who anchored a three-song set list that consisted of "Lights", "Separate Ways", and "Don't Stop Believin'".
