Chris Rock will have the honor of inducting the Red Hot Chili Peppers into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 14. Other artists being honored include the Beastie Boys, Donovan, the Small Faces/Faces, Laura Nuro, Freddie King, Don Kirshner and Guns N’ Roses.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers have sold some 80 million albums worldwide and have seven Grammy Awards under their belts. After learning that Guns N’ Roses would be immortalized in the Hall of Fame, Axl Rose tweeted, “I’d like to thank the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame and our fans. This is your victory.”
Although the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony is being held in mid-April, HBO will air an edited version on May 5. Which artist are you most happy to see recognized in this year’s induction ceremony?
