Drama:

  • KISS is pissed that only the four original members are being inducted so they won’t perform.
  • Linda Ronstadt does not see herself as a rock and roll singer and won’t attend.
  • Andrew Loog Oldham also won’t attend, saying, “I think those people basically hijacked the name ‘rock ‘n’ roll’. It’s a television show. 20 years ago it was an incredible party in the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel where everybody could behave exactly as they could 20 years ago. And then it became a business. I think it’s healthier to stay home.”

This year’s TV broadcast will air on May 31st on HBO.
