Inductees to rock hall of fame named
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.
