Tonight at New York’s Waldorf Astoria, the Stooges, Genesis and Abba will join the esteemed Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, along with the Hollies and Jimmy Cliff. Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, Phish’s Trey Anastasio, the E Street Band’s Steven Van Zandt and Wyclef Jean will induct the honorees, and Chris Isaak, Faith Hill, Ronnie Spector and members of Maroon 5 are scheduled to take the stage to cap with the ceremony with live performances. As RS reported, Peter Gabriel will not attend the ceremony, preventing a full Genesis reunion; similarly, half of Abba will not be in attendance.
