The all-star group of inductors for the 2019 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame class are every bit as glittery as the headliners. They include Harry Styles, who will do the honors for Stevie Nicks, who will become the first woman to be inducted twice, in 1998 for her work in Fleetwood Mac and this year for her solo career. 

Other stars doing the honors include: David Byrne for Radiohead, Nine Inch NailsTrent Reznor for The Cure, Queen's Brian May for Def Leppard, Janelle Monaé for Janet Jackson, The Bangles' Susanna Hoffs for The Zombies and Duran Duran's Simon LeBon and John Taylor for Roxy Music.

This year's Rock induction ceremony will take place on March 29 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, with no details released so far on which acts will perform; according to Rolling Stone, Def Leppard, Nicks, the Zombies and Roxy Music are expected to take the stage.   

One group we know will not be on hand is Radiohead, whose members have been very vocal about their disinterest in the honor, with Thom Yorke saying he is unable to attend because a piano piece he composed will debut at the Paris Philharmonic nine days after the induction ceremony.
