Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's Greatest Moments

Page 6 of 6

2010 The Stooges Get In: Iggy and the Stooges share the stage with Scott Thurston on "Search and Destroy," and of course Iggy took off his shirt.

2011 Neil Diamond Meets The Folks: Ever the man of the people, Diamond took a stroll into the crowd while performing "Sweet Caroline."

2012 Guns N' Roses Go Without Axl: After the mercurial frontman made no bones about his distaste for the Hall, his former bandmates showed their distaste for him by performing anyway.

2013 Rush ... and the Foo Fighters: It took the world's greatest power trio years to make the Hall, and presumably it will take just as long for superfans Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins to wipe the grins off their faces after performing with their heroes.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
