And now the Rock Hall has added guitarist Rick Derringer, rockabilly star Ronnie Hawkins, country icon Merle Haggard, Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid and singer-guitarist Ray Sharpe. The Rock Hall also announced that jazz guitarist and banjoist Bucky Pizzarelli will not perform due to a scheduling conflict.
