Rock Hall 2017 class includes Pearl Jam, Tupac and Journey

Wenner also named each of the inductees and discussed their success, and the audience erupted loudly after he called out Pearl Jam.

It was a theme at odds with everything the band would become.

Considering Chuck Berry is the single most important figure in rock history, it makes sense that the first Rock Hall ceremony following his death would open with an homage to the rock n' roll architect. Pearl Jam remains culturally relevant while earning an honour that for many arrives as they are lapsing into nostalgia-act territory.

China to establish new economic zone near Beijing
The new economic zone will ultimately encompass an area over 400 square miles greater than New York City. It is part of the government's ambitious plan to develop the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region.

Former drummer Dave Krusen said, "Pearl Jam saved my life". "They are without question my favorite band". But, hey, that's rock and roll.

Pearl Jam and Tupac Shakur were also set to be inducted in their first year of eligibility, 25 years after the release of their debut albums in 1991.

Tributes were also paid on Friday to Chuck Berry, who died last month at age 90 and who was the first person ever to be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1986, and Prince, who died of an accidental painkiller overdose in April 2016. They have kept it Seattle. But getting serious again, he said, "When I got here, I remembered: 'Oh my God, what a gift live music is".

Head of Trump-Russia probe under fire, won't step down
John McCain (R-Ariz.) questioned Nunes' credibility and the House Intelligence Committee's ability to conduct its investigation. Nunes told reporters Tuesday he would not step down from the investigation in Russian interference during the USA election.

"They were something more than a band. they were a true living cultural organism". Hearing Jon Anderson's trademark tenor, backed with harmonies from guitarist Steve Howe and keys from Wakeman on "Roundabout" was a testament as to why the band snubbed for so long so deserved the honor. While we hope he's better and nailing his Neil Young look soon, Young's absence meant that David Letterman stepped in to do the honors. "They can't take this away from you homie", he said, accepting the statuette on Shakur's behalf. "Their thing is being in a band".

After Geddy Lee helped "right a wrong" by inducting Yes into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Rush bassist joined his prog-rock heroes onstage for a crushingly loud run-through of "Roundabout". Even though McKagan is an inductee, he says he still wonders "what's the criteria for getting in?" Now, though, Young is no longer able to attend the ceremony "due to illness".

He recalls McCready getting a job at Herfy's Burgers in high school so he could afford a much-desired guitar, and many afternoons spent debating the merits of their favourite bands. "We've got a lot of evolving to do, it's evolution baby".
