You've probably heard by now that the Rock and Roll of Fame's Induction Ceremonies return to Cleveland on April 14.
They've finally announced the list of presenters:
Beastie Boys will be inducted by Chuck D
Donovan will be inducted by John Mellencamp
Small Faces/The Faces will be inducted by Stevie Van Zandt
Red Hot Chili Peppers will be inducted by Chris Rock
Laura Nyro will be inducted by Bette Midler
Freddie King will be inducted by Billy Gibbons and Dusty Hill
Don Kirshner will be inducted by Carole King
Engineers Cosimo Matassa, Tom Dowd, and Glyn Johns will be inducted by Robbie Robertson
And the make-up-for-past-wrongs list of groups — The Crickets, the Famous Flames, the Midnighters, the Comets, the Blue Caps, and the Miracles — will be inducted by Smokey Robinson.
We have no idea what's up with that, other than the Rock Hall's statement that "more details about performances, additional presenters and special guests will be announced at a later date."
Maybe they couldn't find anyone who wants to be onstage with Axl. —Michael Gallucci
