Pearl Jam, Tupac, Yes, Journey to be inducted into Rock Hall

Pearl Jam, Tupac, Yes, Journey to be inducted into Rock Hall”

In its statement yesterday, the Rock Hall concluded, "We're wishing Neil a speedy recovery".

"Maybe the most important reason we came tonight is not to receive this honor, but to honor those who have worked so hard for this band, to help it function", Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard said, before rattling off a list of more than 40 names. But that doesn't mean Letterman hasn't had a speech prepared for Eddie Vedder and Co.in his back pocket from the moment Pearl Jam first stepped on the Late Show stage in 1996.

Dogg, a former label mate and friend of Shakur, says he was at Friday night's ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn to make sure the rapper, actor and poet is remembered as a "strong black man that stood for his". Rodgers received a special honour at the event, which will air April 29 as a special on HBO. He thanked his brothers in Pearl Jam, and in his other band, Soundgarden (another glaring omission from the Rock Hall, by the way).

NBA says Charlotte is eligible to host 2019 All-Star Game
The Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority estimated the yanked event would have generated about $ 100 million in economic impact. Roy Cooper recently passed, the league has followed the NCAA in saying it's willing to return future events to the state.

Rush's Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson will induct prog rock legends Yes, while Jackson Browne will be on hand to induct Joan Baez.

"I want my granddaughter to know I fought against an evil tide and had the masses by my side", she said. Alicia Keys gave Shakur's raps a new bent, but remained true to the guts that were the essence of his rap. "This award is wonderful to me because of all the people who have allowed me to join their lives and their bands". The induction ceremony will also contain a Prince tribute by Lenny Kravitz and a ceremony honoring lifetime achievement recipient Nile Rodgers that will be led by Pharrell.

David Letterman showed his fondness for Pearl Jam when he inducted the grunge rockers into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Implanted RFID microchips are passive, which means it can save the data that other device can read but not on their own data. One microbiologist said that huge amounts of information could be gained by hackers from the embedded microchips.

Good news is that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame voters have wonderful taste in performers and PJ got in on the first ballot, easy. Letterman's take on that part of rock history: "Pearl Jam stood up to that beady-eyed, bloodsucking corporation Ticketmaster..." Every time they were there, they would blow the roof off the place and I'm not talking figuratively. Eddie Vedder also performed on Letterman during the late night host's final week hosting the show in 2015.

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder seized on the platform to issue a call to arms on climate change - saying that rising temperatures were not, in the phrasing of industry-friendly President Donald Trump, "fake news". "We can not have [future generations] look back and say, "Why did they not do everything humanly possible?' We don't have 108 years", Mr. Vedder added, referencing the time between the Chicago Cubs" World Series victories. You will always be right with us.

Spotify goes back on their word
Spotify is still negotiating with the remaining two of the "big three" music labels, Sony Music and Warner Music Group. But if Spotify pulls of a successful IPO that isn't an IPO, perhaps more local companies will follow in its footsteps.
