Inducted into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Stevens is inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame during the 29th induction ceremony.

[Rock Hall induction] certainly brings happiness to my fans and those who have campaigned for it. Embarrassingly, it makes me feel good, too.

Ronstadt is inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame during the 29th induction ceremony.

It wasn’t anything I ever thought about. I never thought of myself as a rock’ n’ roll singer; I sang it, (but) it’s just one of the things I sang. I sang a lot of different stuff. I didn’t go the last two times I was nominated for a Grammy, either. I don’t have anything against it; you just don’t do things for those reasons. If you’re working for prizes, you’re in trouble. There’s nothing wrong with it. I don’t mind it. It’s just not anything I ever gave a thought to.

So I’m proud to induct, into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the heart-stopping, pants-dropping, hard-rocking, booty-shaking, love-making, earth-quaking, Viagra-taking, justifying, death-defying, legendary E Street Band.

King is posthumously inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame at the 28th induction ceremony. John Mayer:

My dream of playing the blues for a living came true — sort of — but the blues is alive in all of my songs and in my playing. Albert’s style is the reason guitar faces were invented.

It’s good to look back from time to time to see where you impacted change or if you impacted change. I had parents who encouraged me to speak out and say what was on my mind and speak my truth. I think PE wanted to make change in some way through the music, and we did in the way we said what we said and how we said it.

Adler is inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame at the 28th induction ceremony.

It’s a real nice feeling, you know, no matter what you think about it. Every year goes by, if you don’t make it, you just say, ‘Well, it doesn’t matter.’ But it really matters, and you find that out when they finally say, ‘You’re in.’

The group is inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame at the 27th induction ceremony. Author Otto Fuchs:

One last thing, all musicians who shared the stage with Bill Haley as The Comets from 1952 until 1980 should be seen as what they were. They were contributors to the success of Rock and Roll and Bill Haley.  Contrary to what the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame published, the band did not break up in 1962, but went on until the final curtain fell for Bill Haley!

The group is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the 27th induction ceremony. Claudette Robinson:

I didn’t think it would happen in my lifetime. For the longest time so many people have put in their comments and tried so hard for us to be inducted, and there was always a reason we weren’t. So I was a little shocked when they called and said it would happen.

The group is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the 27th induction ceremony. Kiedis on how deceased member Slovak have loved the honor:

I think that he would have a good laugh. Yeah, it would certainly mean something to him as he cared deeply about music and the love of the brotherhood of being in a band and being a creative force in the universe, which he is and always will be a brother in everything we do.

The group, excluding Axl Rose,  is inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame at the 27th induction ceremony. Slash:

The thing that stuck out to me the most was when they had the Blue Caps and Crickets and the Fabulous Flames and Comets and all those guys get up there and get inducted . . . I was like, ‘Wow,’ all these guys in their 80s and 90s, some in their wheelchairs, some not even there because they’re dead, all lined up getting this honor, this recognition. That really pulled at my heartstrings. That sort of erased for me all the questions that I have. I was like, ‘I guess everybody gets it in due time. ‘

King is posthumously inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame at the 27th induction ceremony. Billy Gibbons:

We came to pay tribute to Freddie [King] on a number of levels and a number of reasons. We have a long standing history of, first of all, loving the music he was doing, and later, the surprise was getting to be friends and having him mentor and teach us a few things.

Dr. John is inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame during the 26th induction ceremony.

I feel like I’m blessed to get a reward from ya’ll. I feel like I’m blessed to be standing, to be breathing. You know, we just buried my drummer Saturday. He’d been my drummer for 37 years. But I have a lot of cats that’s been with me for a long time because we love what we do.

Love is inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame during the 26th induction ceremony.

It’s the validation of all the work I’ve done all these years. People in the [music] industry know me better than people outside of the industry. This to me is my Grammy, my Academy Award, my Tony, all in this one award. This means I’m being honored for everything that I’ve ever done.

The group is inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame during the 25th induction ceremony. Benny Andersson:

I take it as a true honor. We are and were sort of a solid pop band, and there is a difference between pop music and rock ‘n’ roll music. Being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame wasn’t on the map, really, for us. On the other hand, there are a lot of pop acts already inducted, so I don’t mind. I’m not the one who inducted myself, you know?

The group is inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame during the 25th induction ceremony. Iggy Pop:

I didn’t think I’d ever see the inside of that neighborhood actually. Probably because the group had a very long outsider history, going back way back before there was ever a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It took us a lot longer to get some sort of general acceptance than probably most people
