Any true appreciator of rock n’ roll is well-versed in all matters relating to the acclaimed Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame. Musicians strive to be inducted, or even to be presented an opportunity to perform. Despite the dreary and atmosphere surrounding the coincidental 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s sinking on April 14th, the Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony did not cease to amaze attendees, performers, and fans. The Red Hot Chili Peppers, the Beastie Boys, and Guns N’ Roses were among the awarded inductees of the night. Popular performers ranged from Green Day, which performed a song fromAmerican Idiot to Sara Bareilles, who covered Laura Nyro with “Stoney End”. It isn’t difficult to appreciate the surprising magnitude and power of the ceremony – even though Axl Rose, lead singer of Guns N’ Roses chose not to attend the event, the night was a astonishing success.
It’s amazing to witness the power of the rock n’ roll community and the intense, purely musical bond between the performers and spectators. Critics described this ceremony as arguably the greatest Rock N’ Roll Hall of Fame ceremony yet, and the audience admired every guitar note, every wail, every rock, and every roll.
