Chris Rock, Bette Midler to induct Hall of Fame acts
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony likely will be a little more irreverent this year: Chris Rock is set to be one of the A-list presenters for the April event.
The comedian is due to induct the Red Hot Chili Peppers into the hall at the ceremony at the hall in Cleveland on April 14, according to the Associated Press. The ceremony will be broadcast on May 5 on HBO. Mr. Rock is a big fan and has been a friend of the band for a while.
Mr. Rock will join Bette Midler, who will induct the late singer-songwriter Laura Nyro; John Mellencamp, who’ll induct former tour mate Donovan; Chuck D, who will induct the Beastie Boys; and Stevie Van Zandt, who will induct the Small Faces/the Faces, which included Rod Stewart.
