Jimmy Cliff

 

Please remember that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies are a TV show (this year, live on the Fuse, 7:30 p.m. CST on March 15). So the Hall picks big names with high TV Q to give the induction speeches.

Here's the lineup:

Barry and Robin Gibb of the Bee Gees wil induct ABBA

Wyclef Jean ... Jimmy Cliff

Trey Anastasio  of Phish....  Genesis

Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day... the Stooges

Steve Van Zandt of Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band ... the Hollies

Jackson Browne ... David Geffen, the record executive

Carole King ... a slew of songwriters: Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil, Ellie Greenwich and Jeff Barry, Mort Shuman, Otis Blackwell and Jesse Stone.
