The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame just announced the list of presenters who'll be inducting the class of 2011 next month. And it looks a lot like you'd think it would look.

So if you plan on heading to New York for the show on March 14, here's who you'll see:

—Alice Cooper will be inducted by Rob Zombie
—Neil Diamond will be inducted by Paul Simon
—Dr. John will be inducted by John Legend
—Darlene Love will be inducted by Bette Midler
—Tom Waits will be inducted by Neil Young
—Jac Holzman will be inducted by John Densmore from the Doors
—Art Rupe will be inducted by Lloyd Price
—Leon Russell will be inducted by Elton John

Honestly, it would be cool if they mixed things up — like have Rob Zombie induct Neil Diamond and Lloyd Price induct Alice Cooper.

But that's not gonna happen. So enjoy Elton John talking about how awesome it was working with Leon Russell on that new album of theirs that nobody heard. —Michael Gallucci
