Looks like quite a party!
Today, HBO released an extended trailer of the 2015 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which the channel will air on May 30th. The clip includes interviews with Ringo Starr, Joan Jett and other new inductees; performers John Legend, Gary Clark Jr., Joe Walsh and Zac Brown also pop up to pay tribute to their heroes.
New footage includes Paul McCartney celebrating his Beatles bandmate Starr with his typical droll humor, which Starr mirrors in his interview with HBO. “You can’t get in until 25 years after you’ve had your first hit. Well I’m way passed that,” he cracks. “But here we are. Peace and love.” Joan Jett is also feted by Miley Cyrus, who thanks the Runaways star for “fighting for our freedom.” After, Jett notes that the ceremony (and her celebrity-packed superjam) brought her “back to the days when everyone was saying, ‘Girls can’t play rock and roll.'”
The 2015 ceremony, which was held on April 18 at Cleveland’s Public Hall, inducted Starr, Lou Reed, Green Day, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble, and included collaborative performances by Dave Grohl, Stevie Wonder, Beck, Karen O and more. Grohl, Cyrus, Tommy James and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts jammed to “Crimson & Clover” and Wonder, Legend and Bill Withers played “Lean On Me,” according to Rolling Stone.
