The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has announced further details of the April 10th induction ceremony at Brooklyn's Barclays Center: Michael Stipe is inducting Nirvana, though there's no word on whether or not the surviving members will perform together. Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello will induct Kiss, who opted not to perform after a very public disagreement regarding which members would get to participate. Bruce Springsteen will induct the E Street Band, and they will perform together as well.

Coldplay's Chris Martin will pay tribute to Peter Gabriel, who plans on performing. Glenn Frey of the Eagles will induct his former bandleader Linda Ronstadt, and a unique tribute will be staged to the singer featuring Stevie Nicks, Carrie Underwood, Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow and Bonnie Raitt. Questlove of the Roots will pay tribute to Hall and Oates, and the duo plans to play at the ceremony. Peter Asher is going to induct Brian Epstein and Andrew Loog Oldham. There's no word on who will induct Cat Stevens (Yusuf Islam).

This year's event marks the first time the general public has been able to attend the ceremony in New York City. All previous ceremonies in the city were held at the Waldorf Astoria's grand ballroom. A limited number of tickets have recently been made available on Ticketmaster due to production updates. 

An edited version of the ceremony will air on HBO on May 31st at 9:00 p.m.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
