Rolling Stone has revealed the final details surrounding this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony. Set to happen on April 18th at L.A.'s Nokia Theatre and air nationwide on HBO May 18th, the night features performances from all four living inductees (Rush, Public Enemy, Randy Newman and Heart), as well as appearances by Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins of Foo Fighters, Spike Lee, Harry Belafonte, Don Henley, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, John Mayer, and Cheech & Chong.
"Dave and Taylor were one of the first people we thought about to induct Rush," Hall of Fame CEO/president Joel Peresman explained on the magazine's daily site. "They said 'yes' in about two seconds. I'm hopeful [they'll play together]. More than a few times in the past, people have got caught in the moment and decide to perform. That's what happened last year with Green Day — they were just there to present an award to Guns N' Roses and after hanging around rehearsals, they decided to play."
One confirmed live collaboration is Randy Newman with John Fogerty and Jackson Browne, although Peresman is quick to add that he could also "see Chuck D rapping something and Flavor Flav doing something with the guys from Rush onstage...Who knows what will happen? We have some very interesting people."
