The 2012 Rock Hall induction is in Cleveland! Guns N’ Roses, the Beastie Boys and the Red Hot Chili Peppers; how cool would it be to be there for this?

From Cleveland.com: “The 2012 induction ceremony will take place Saturday, April 14, at Public Auditorium in Cleveland. Guns N’ Roses, the Beastie Boys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Donovan, Laura Nyro and the Small Faces/Faces will be inducted as performers. Late bluesman Freddie King will be ushered in as an early influence. Among the nonperformer inductees will be Don Kirshner, Tom Dowd, Glyn Johns and Cosimo Matassa.

The inductions here will be preceded by nine days of tie-in events, including the grand opening of the Rock Hall’s library and archives on Cuyahoga Community College’s Metropolitan Campus, the launch of a major new exhibition and a free “Concert for Cleveland.” Details for those events will be announced later, along with celebrity presenters for the inductions.

This will be the third induction ceremony in the Rock Hall’s hometown.”
