Cleveland's own Bobby Womack finally got in tonight. And he was inducted by the Rolling Stones' Ron Wood, whose band covered Womack's "It's All Over Now."
Womack himself gave a shout out to Sam Cooke (who's wife Womack ended up with after Cooke died), his mom and his brothers, the Cleveland crew Womack got his start with.
He ended his induction speech bridging the beginning of the civil rights era with Barack Obama's presidency. Then he played a few songs with the band, strumming an acoustic guitar(!). "Across 110th Street" killed, especially with the strings session. And he still sounds great.
