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

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inducted its Class of 2017 on Friday (April 7) night at Brooklyn's Barclays Center.

"Due to illness, Neil Young is regrettably no longer able to induct Pearl Jam at this year's induction ceremony", the statement said.

Pearl Jam will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with ELO, Joan Baez, Journey, Tupac Shakur, and Yes.

Speculation on whether Perry would join his longtime former bandmates ran rampant in the weeks leading up to Friday's ceremony at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. He was initially silent on the issue, before Cain indicated that a reunion was in the offing.

As Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder thanked his wife during his speech at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, one male fan from a seat up high screamed, "I love you Eddie!"

Harris pointed out that Journey's popularity with music fans was made clear previous year when the band "ran away with" the Rock Hall's online public vote.

Here's a look at who is in and when you can see the ceremony. Even though McKagan is an inductee, he says he still wonders "what's the criteria for getting in?"

"Maybe the most important reason we came tonight is not to receive this honor, but to honor those who have worked so hard for this band, to help it function", Pearl Jam guitarist Stone Gossard said, before rattling off a list of more than 40 names.

While Pearl Jam had to wait until the end to be honored, its presence was felt from the beginning.

Tupac, who was killed in 1996 at age 25 in a still murky Las Vegas shooting, was introduced by his contemporary Snoop Dogg, a fellow force in creating gangsta rap in California.

Alicia Keys performed a medley of Shakur's songs on piano, including "Dear Mama" and "Changes". This number also does not count solo performances by Eddie Vedder, who also appeared throughout the years.

Electric Light Orchestra, known for its marriage of rock and classical, started the gala with a cover of Berry's "Roll Over Beethoven" led by strings before going into the band's most recognizable hit, "Evil Woman". "This award is awesome to me because of all the people who have allowed me to join their lives and their bands". So, I said, 'You know what? "This award is as much for you as it is for us".

The song proved to be durable, popping up on Young's feedback-slathered live Weld album in 1991 and playing during the close credits of Michael Moore's documentary Fahrenheit 9/11.
