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

Video footage from Electric Light Orchestra and Pearl Jam's induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame on April 7 at New York's Barclays Center have surfaced online.

David Letterman and his colossal beard made a rare public appearance Friday night to induct veteran rockers Pearl Jam into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in NY.

"I've been gone a long time, I understand that, but you've never not been in my heart, " he said. That was the theme as the group was inducted Friday - fans constantly screaming and hooting after someone said the band's name or a camera panned to the rockers.

In the end, the night belonged to Pearl Jam. David Letterman inducted the band, which had appeared on his late night show seven times.

Letterman fondly recalled having Pearl Jam on the "Late Show," as well as other live acts "and future hall of famers", during his 33-year tenure. "They'd recognize injustice and stand up to it", he said.

Letterman told a particularly heart-warming story about when Vedder gave his son a guitar and encouraged him to learn to play music with a hand-written note, which the comedian read onstage.

Munoz came under fire for praising employees in a memo shortly after the incident and not issuing an apology to Dao for two days. No passengers on the plane have mentioned that Dao did anything but refuse to leave the plane when he was ordered to do so.

In her acceptance speech 76-year old Baez called for global compassion. "I know that's hard to see or even hard to say, but I really always felt that I was the outside guy", Perry said during the VH1 special. "We were so fortunate, every one of them was great", he continued before giving praise to Dave Abbruzzese, "We have the great Dave Abbruzzese, he is a great fucking drummer".

They were inducted alongside the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), Journey and Yes during a concert in NY.

Producer Nile Rodgers and lead guitarist of disco band Chic, who was responsible for the sheen on hits like Le Freak and We Are Family was presented with a special award for musical excellence.

Rocker Lenny Kravitz performed moving renditions of "When Doves Cry" and "The Cross" as a tribute to the late Prince, who died last year shortly after last year's ceremony. 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.

"I know Neil Young was supposed to be here, and people are saying to me like I had something to with it". Those are the things that really kept us together when we felt the responsibility to the music was bigger than ourselves or our own personal needs. And it probably fit that newly minted Hall of Famer Jeff Lynne, whose Electric Light Orchestra is, was and always will be known for the wondrous merger of rock and classical, starting off with a mash of Berry's "Roll Over Beethoven".
