For the record, just wanted to let you know (for comic relief, maybe) that the RnR Hall's 28th annual induction ceremony will be held at the Nokia Theatre in LA this year. This is the first time the induction ceremonyy will be held outside of Cleveland in 20 years.
Christina Aguilera and Jennifer Hudson will perform in honor of the late disco queen, Donna Summer. (not bad)
Summer is among this year's eight inductees, which also include rockers Heart and Rush, singer-songwriter Randy Newman, rap group Public Enemy and bluesman Albert King, as well as Lou Adler and Quincy Jones, this year's Ahmet Ertegun lifetime achievement honorees.
Other artists scheduled to attend include the Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins, who will present Rush; Jackson Browne and John Fogerty, who will perform with Randy Newman; Pearl Jam's Mike McCready and Alice In Chains' Jerry Cantrell, who will join Heart; Spike Lee and Harry Belafonte, who will present Public Enemy; and Don Henley, who will induct Newman.
Broadcast May 18th -- on HBO. You won't be watching. I get it.
