Randy New­man’s glad he didn’t have to do any­thing dras­tic to get into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

“I’m very happy,” the 69-year-old New­man said from Los An­ge­les. “I thought I’d have to die first, but I’m glad I’m around to see it.”

New­man is joined in the 2013 class by the eclec­tic group of rock­ers Rush and Heart, rap group Pub­lic En­emy, “Queen of Disco” Donna Sum­mer and blues­man Al­bert King. Quincy Jones and his friend Lou Adler will en­ter the hall as Ah­met Erte­gun Award win­ners for their con­tri­bu­tions be­yond per­for­mance.

They will be in­ducted April 18 in Los An­ge­les.
