Chris Rock and Chuck D to Induct Red Hot Chili Peppers and Beastie Boys Into Rock Hall
While there is still one glaring omission from the list of presenters for the April 14 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, it does reveal that comedian Chris Rock and Public Enemy’s Chuck D will be a parts of the festivities.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has just released the list of presenters for the upcoming induction ceremony that will welcome Guns N’ Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Beastie Boys, among others, to it’s prestigious halls. While most of the attention for the shindig has been focused on what GN’R will or will not be doing, they are, ironically, the only act that doesn’t have a presenter attached to their name yet.
Red Hot Chili Peppers, who will not be accompanied by former guitarist John Frusciante at the event, will be presented by funnyman Chris Rock. Meanwhile, Public Enemy frontman and former Def Jam label mate Chuck D will be doing the honors for Beastie Boys, who are being inducted this year after a previous nomination in 2009.
The 27th annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, being held on April 14 in Cleveland, Ohio, will also welcome The Small Faces (The Faces), Donovan, Freddie King and others. While the ceremony is completely sold out, it will be broadcast on HBO Saturday, May 5 at 9:30PM ET.
